The San Jose Sharks will start Aaron Dell against the New York Islanders on Saturday night.

Dell lost to the Islanders six days ago. He'll get a second crack at them tonight in a rematch in New York. He gets the start in the second game of a back-to-back for the Fins. He's not expected to have much fantasy value this season.
Oct 21 - 5:59 PM

Joonas Donskoi tallied his first goal of the year in Friday's 3-0 victory versus New Jersey.

Donskoi scored on his own rebound to give the Sharks a 3-0 lead late in the second period. He has collected three points in six matches this season.
Oct 21 - 10:58 AM

Melker Karlsson got his first goal of the season Friday night.

Karlsson opened the scoring in a 3-0 win over New Jersey. It was also Karlsson's first point in six matches this season.
Oct 21 - 10:56 AM

Martin Jones stopped all 28 shots he faced in Friday’s 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Jones has now won three straight games. It’s also the third game in a row that he holds the opposition to two goals or less. The shutout was his first of the season. Jones now owns a 3-2-0 record with a 2.64 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage this season.
Oct 20 - 10:20 PM

Joe Pavelski scored a goal in Friday’s 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Pavelski gave the Sharks a 2-0 lead at the 5:49 mark of the second period. After failing to score in his first four games of the season, Pavelski has now found the back of the net in back-to-back games. The Sharks forward now has two goals and two assists in six games this season. Expect him to score a little more frequently as the season goes on.

Martin Jones will get the start in Friday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

Jones has a 2-2-0 record with a 3.38 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage this season. He's won back-to-back games and he's given up two goals in each of those two outings.
Oct 20 - 6:00 PM

Tim Heed recorded his first NHL point in Tuesday's 5-2 win against Montreal Tuesday night.

Heed assisted on Logan Couture's power-play goal in the second period. Heed, 26, was playing in his fourth career contest. He had 14 goals and 56 points in 55 AHL games last season.
Oct 18 - 5:31 AM

Marc-Edouard Vlasic posted an assist with a plus-1 rating, two blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 5-2 victory against the Canadiens.

After three scoreless outings to open the season, Vlasic has posted an assist in each of his past two games. He sees a healthy amount of ice time on the power play, but his largest contribution to the fantasy line is his willingness to step in front of shots. He recorded 146 blocked shots in 75 games in 2016-17.
Oct 18 - 3:51 AM

Justin Braun posted an assist with a plus-1 rating, two hits and a blocked shot in Tuesday's home win against Montreal.

Braun snapped a four-game scoreless skid to open the season. He has never really been one for big offensive totals, but he is an attractive fantasy option due to his frequent blocked shots and hits. He recorded 161 blocked shots and 136 hits across 81 games last season in San Jose.
Oct 18 - 3:46 AM

Logan Couture posted two goals, including a power-play marker, with two assists and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 victory against the Canadiens.

Couture entered the game with just one goal and no assists over his first four games, and that tally came in the opener Oct. 4 against the Flyers. Patient fantasy owners are breathing a sigh of relief after the big performance which included a pair of points on the man advantage.
Oct 18 - 3:43 AM

Martin Jones allowed two goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win against the Canadiens.

After a terrible start with eight total goals allowed in four-plus periods, Jones has settled down for a pair of victories over his past two outings. He chopped down his goals-against average from 3.91 to 3.38, but he still has plenty of work to do before he is back in the good graces of his fantasy owners.
Oct 18 - 3:40 AM

Martin Jones will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

Jones is coming off his first win of the season. The Sharks have had a hard time scoring goals so Jones might not be the best fantasy option ahead of tonight's game. He has a 1-2-0 record with a 3.93 goals-against-average and a .881 save percentage this season.
Oct 17 - 3:28 PM

Paul Martin (ankle) is "doubtful" to join the Sharks on their upcoming road trip.

San Jose will host Montreal on Tuesday before going on a five-game road swing. If that timetable holds then Martin will be sidelined for the next two weeks.
