Grosenick was waived by the Sharks on Monday for the purpose of reassignment to AHL San Jose, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Grosenick lost out to Aaron Dell in a training camp battle for the back-up job, although Dell was the favorite heading in. If he is unclaimed, Grosenick will return to the minors where he registered a 11-10-4 record along with a 3.16 GAA, something fans and the organization alike will want to see lowered this year. In addition to the netminder, the Sharks also waived defenseman Dan Kelly.
Grosenick will start in goal for Tuesday night's game against the visiting Canucks. Grosenick shined in two appearances with Team Teal last November, allowing three goals on 58 shots between the Hurricanes and Sabres. Still, the undrafted netminder carried a 3.16 GAA over 28 games with AHL San Jose, suggesting that he has plenty of room for improvement. No matter how he performs Tuesday, expect the Sharks to also give Mantas Armalis a look in Tuesday's exhibition contest.
The Sharks have reassigned Grosenick to the AHL on Thursday. Grosenick was just up in the NHL while the Sharks attempted to get Alex Stalock some reps in the AHL. The up and down for Grosenick does not represent a change in his status as third in the pecking order for the Sharks.
Grosenick was recalled to the NHL, reports CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz. This likely doesn't mean that Grosenick will play, as the team has reassigned Alex Stalock to the AHL for conditioning. Grosenick will be backing up Martin Jones.
Troy Grosenick signed a two-year, $1.2 million contract with the Sharks on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
