Schlemko signed a four-year, $8.1 million contract with the Sharks on Friday, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN reports. Schlemko figures to beef up San Jose's blue line after he scored six goals and assisted on 13 over 67 outings with New Jersey last season, the 29-year-old's most productive campaign to date.
Schlemko (upper body) will play in Saturday's game against the Lightning, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Schlemko has not played since March 17 due to his upper-body issue, but he will be back on the ice Saturday night. He was quiet in the fantasy department in March when healthy, recording just two assists, zero PIM, and a minus-four rating across eight games.
Coach John Hynes indicated Friday that he expects Schlemko (upper body) to be available for Saturday's game against the Lightning Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. While he's expected to be available, Gulitti suggests that it may come down to a coach's decision as to whether or not he will dress. The 28-year-old blueliner has collected 19 points through 63 contests this season, but remains only in consideration in some deeper fantasy leagues. The team should confirm his status for Saturday's contest again on game day.
Schlemko (upper body) will not suit up for Thursday's meeting with Florida, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. While Schlemko will not be in the lineup Thursday, he appears to be nearing a return and could see action against the Lightning on Saturday. When healthy, the 28-year-old is not exactly a prolific scorer, as he has failed to register a goal in his last 19 outings. Additionally, the blueliner managed a meager four helpers over that span, further depressing his fantasy value.
Schlemko, who has been out since March 17 with an upper-body injury, hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports. Schlemko took the ice with his teammates Wednesday, and while a Thursday return may be pushing things, it looks like the blueliner -- who has 10 points in 63 games -- is getting closer to game action at this stage.
