Forward Frazer McLaren played in both Worcester Sharks games this weekend. He was scoreless with nine penalty minutes, including a fight with Manchesters Justin Johnson on Saturday.
Ian White, who joined the Sharks late last season from Carolina before signing with Detroit this summer, suffered a fractured cheekbone when he was struck by a shot in the face on Saturday.
The Sharks were skunked by the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night 3-0, and don't play again until Thursday night. One thing is certain -- they won't be resting during their time off.
The Sharks fired off over 30 shots, but the Coyotes' Mike Smith saved every one. San Jose was shut out at home by Phoenix for the first time since 1997.
Defenseman Jason Demers has been a healthy scratch in seven of the past nine games, but the trial is eliciting something other than discouragement from the 23-year old.
The NHL All-Star Game goes down Jan. 29 in Ottawa. Several Sharks may be taking part in the festivities but Logan Couture is not one of them. How does he feel about it?
Thomas Greiss, who made his last start on October 29 against the New York Islanders, will be in the net tonight for the Sharks. What other storylines should you be paying attention to?
Justin Braun's play this year has elicited positive praise from important places. You might be surprised to hear what his coach and teammates had to say about the second-year defenseman.
The Sharks are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games, and a closer look reveals that five of those eight wins have come against clubs in the Top 10 in the league in goals-against. How have they been so successful?
Frazer McLaren hasn't played an NHL game in over a year, but with the 6-5, 250-pound winger off the injured reserve, Todd McLellan hopes to add an "important piece" within a month.
In the win over the Wild, Justin Braun's minutes were comparable to those of high-profile acquisition Brent Burns, not just full strength but on the power play as well.
Patrick Marleau scored two power play goals in the second period against Minnesota and the Sharks handed Devin Setoguchi and Dany Heatley a 3-1 loss in their return to San Jose.
The NHL released its list of players on the official All-Star ballot today, and included among the names were five San Jose Sharks.
Defensive changes -- Dan Boyle and Douglas Murray remain together, but look for Brent Burns to play with Colin White and Marc-Edouard Vlasic to skate with Justin Braun in tonight's game against the Wild.
