Mikkel Boedker is playing on the second line with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi.

Boedker got off to a horrific start to the season but has played better with four of his six goals coming earlier in the month. He has not picked up a point in his last five games but that seems to be the norm for Boedker this season. He will lose his spot as a top-six forward once Tomas Hertl and/or Timo Meier return from injury.

Timo Meier missed his second straight game Saturday with an upper body injury.

The talented forward was picked ninth overall in 2015 and has plenty of offensive upside. He has two goals and four points in 15 games but his upside as mentioned earlier is high. He is worth grabbing in all keeper leagues.

David Schlemko provided the OTGWG as the San Jose Sharks managed a 3-2 overtime win against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

It was Schlemko's first OT game-winner in the NHL and the fourth GWG of his career. This marks his second tally and 10th point of 2016-17, breaking a seven-game pointless slump. That game featured all rare-scorers (the top scorer hit his fifth goal of the season), so Schlemko seems like an inspired choice to make the difference.

Martin Jones continues to deliver at more or less the same level as his outstanding first season with the Sharks during his second campaign as their No. 1 guy.

Jones nabbed a win on Saturday as San Jose edged the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 in overtime. He's now 24-14-2 with a solid .917 save percentage and nice 2.24 GAA. It's plausible that he'll match or best 37 wins, the career-high he set last season. The Sharks took a leap of faith with Jones (he only had 34 games of experience at the NHL level before joining San Jose) and that's been looking like a wise decision.
Jan 22 - 2:44 AM

The Sharks summoned Tim Heed on emergency loan on Saturday.

The talented defender still has nine goals and 32 points in 30 games in AHL San Jose this season. But did not register a point during his NHL debut.
Jan 21 - 4:22 PM

The Sharks recalled Barclay Goodrow from the AHL on Saturday.

The 23-year-old has just 15 points in 74 career NHL games. However he has posted 12 goals and 19 points with 30 PIMs in 32 games down on the farm thus far.
Jan 21 - 4:21 PM

Tomas Hertl has been cleared for contact in practices.

Which ostensibly makes him day-to-day for his return. San Jose plays on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday next week before the All-Star Break kicks in on the 27th. The talented winger has posted four goals and nine points with 26 hits in 17 games so far this season. Stay tuned.
Jan 21 - 3:05 PM

Martin Jones will be in net against Colorado on Saturday.

Though he's only played one fewer game at home, Jones has played much better at home than on the road. In 19 games he's 12-6-1 with a .920 save percentage and a 2.12 GAA.
Jan 21 - 2:29 PM

Coach Pete DeBoer has forced more off days into the schedule of workhorse blueliner Brent Burns.

"Your thought process has changed and now it's, you feel better, you feel great," said Burns, who is getting more accustomed to his days off. "You put the hard work in on your body, sometimes it's nice to let the body heal and allow it to put that work into practice almost. If you just workload and workload, it gets beat up. Some days it short-circuits. But I feel great." Burns is a top contender for the Norris Trophy this season. He leads all defensemen in scoring with 19 goals and 47 points in 46 games, while averaging 25 minutes per match.
Jan 21 - 10:54 AM

San Jose has sent Tim Heed to the AHL.

Heed played for the Sharks on Jan. 11, but that was during a separate NHL stint. He has nine goals and 32 points in 29 AHL contests this season.
Jan 20 - 1:19 PM

Barclay Goodrow has been sent to the minors.

Goodrow only ended up spending a few days in the NHL and didn't play in a game during this stint. He has 19 points and 30 penalty minutes in 31 AHL contests this season.
Jan 20 - 1:18 PM

Paul Martin registered an assist in a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay Thursday night.

That ended a four-game point drought for Martin. He has three goals and 16 points in 45 contests this season, which is pretty good for him. The 35-year-old blueliner finished with 20 points in each of the last two campaigns.
Jan 20 - 11:34 AM

Logan Couture scored the winning goal in a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Couture, who missed the game against the Kings with an illness, put the Sharks ahead 2-1 just 22 seconds into the third period. Couture beat Vasilevskiy through the five-hole with a wrist shot from the low right circle for his 15th. Couture had three shots, three hits and a blocked shot. Ryan Carpenter opened the scoring for the Sharks.
Jan 20 - 2:12 AM

Sharks' backup goalie Aaron Dell stopped 24-of-25 shots in a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay on Thursday.

Dell made his seventh start of the season in place of Martin Jones, who made 22 saves in a 3-2 win against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. Dell is 5-2-0. Rack up another quality start for the 27-year-old.
Jan 20 - 2:01 AM

Micheal Haley (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

Haley picked up an assist in Wednesday's game against Los Angeles in 7:38 of ice time. He has six helpers and 58 penalty minutes in 31 contests.
