Mueller was reassigned to AHL San Jose on Friday. Mueller was recalled Saturday to replace the injured Marc-Edouard Vlasic (lower body) in the Sharks' lineup. However, Vlasic returned to practice Friday, indicating he'll likely be available for Saturday's tilt against the Wild. As such, the Sharks are no longer in need of Mueller's services as a depth defender. The 20-year-old blueliner drew into San Jose's lineup on three occasions during his most-recent stay with the big club, logging four shots on goal and one blocked shot in those games.
