Zubrus scored his second goal of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Ducks. It's his second goal and third point in 19 games this season. He shouldn't be counted on to produce. He's relegated to a fourth-line role and is seeing just a shade over 12 minutes per game.
Zubrus will get back in the lineup on Tuesday, replacing Mike Brown on the fourth line, reports Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area. Zubrus hasn't played since Jan. 7, largely due to injury and the team taking their time working him back into the lineup. The 37-year-old has struggled to produce offense in a limited role. He has no points in his last eight games and just two points over 17 games this season.
Zubrus (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve but still will be held out of Thursday's away game against the Coyotes, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Zubrus missed the past six games with the upper-body ailment and it appears that he'll be eased back into the lineup. His next shot at playing is Saturday night for a home game against the Wild.
Zubrus (upper body) does not appear to be ready for Thursday's road game against the Coyotes, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Zubrus reportedly was on the ice longer than usual Thursday morning, and that's typically a sign that a player is not ready to rejoin the lineup if a game is to be played that same night. Of course, Zubrus remains on injured reserve, arguably the most telling sign that he's not ready to return.
Zubrus (upper body) remains day-to-day, but will accompany the Sharks on the trip to Arizona, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. While Zubrus' status remains unclear for the team's game Thursday against the Coyotes, but the fact that he's traveling with the team certainly offers a glimmer of hope that the 37-year-old blueliner will return to the lineup. If that is to happen, the Sharks would need to activate him from injured reserve.
