Boedker signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the Sharks on Friday, TSN's Pierre LeBrun reports. Boedker tallied 39 points (13 goals, 26 assists) over 62 games with Arizona last season before heading to Colorado via trade in February, where he added 12 points over 18 games with the Avalanche. The 26-year-old winger's arrival will add yet another scoring threat to a San Jose forward group that is already loaded with talent. It isn't clear where Boedker will slot in with the Sharks, but the 2008 first-round pick could push for a top-six role with his new club, potentially skating alongside Logan Couture on San Jose's second line.
Boedker lit the lamp in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville. Boedker went eight games without a goal after notching two against Vancouver on March 16. The 26-year-old hasn't taken many shots in that span -- 11 total -- but managed to turn his only attempt into a goal Tuesday for No. 17 on the year. The winger is just two shy of tying his career high, but with two games remaining, a new milestone may have to wait until next season.
Boedker scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Vancouver. Although the Danish winger hasn't exactly blown up since coming over to Colorado at the trade deadline, he's offered a pretty consistent offensive threat, netting five points in seven games. As his chemistry level increases with the Avs' other outstanding forwards, his production should as well, making Boedker a strong down-the-stretch play.
Boedker scored a goal -- the first with his new team -- in Thursday's 3-2 win over Florida. Boedker now has two points in two outings with Colorado, averaging 16:43 of ice time in that short span. The 28-year-old has fit in well with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, which should bode well for his fantasy outlook moving forward. The former first-round pick has 41 points on the year, 10 shy of matching his career high.
Boedker was traded from the Coyotes to the Avalanche on Monday in exchange for Alex Tanguay, Conner Bleackley and Kyle Wood, Renaud LAvoie of TVA Sports reports. Boedker provides the Coyotes with some short-term improvement among the forward ranks, having amaassed 39 points (13 goals) and 144 shots on goal over 62 contests this season. The move likely won't have a large impact on the landscape of the team, and it wouldn't be surprising if he slots in for Tanguay on the second line, but that should be revealed when he joins the team at practice. His first chance to play with the new club comes Tuesday against the Wild, but that's only if he makes it to Minnesota in time to do so.
