    Sharks' Justin Braun: Will play Tuesday

    Braun (undisclosed) skated in warmups and can be expected to play Tuesday evening against Winnipeg, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports. Braun seemingly has recovered from taking a puck to the face in Monday's game against Calgary and will skate on the top defensive pairing for San Jose alongside Marc-Edouard Vlasic. The 28-year-old defenseman has totaled one goal and 17 assists in 38 contests for the Sharks this season.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Game-time decision Tuesday

    Braun (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday evening's matchup at Winnipeg, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports. Braun took a puck to the face during Monday's game at Calgary which is likely what caused his game-time decision status. If Braun can't play, Matt Tennyson or Karl Stollery would likely draw into the Sharks' defensive pairings in his place.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Career night against Toronto

    Braun had a huge night, posting three assists, a plus-5 rating and five shots in a 7-0 rout of the Maple Leafs on Saturday. It was a career night for Braun, hitting a career-high in assists and plus/minus. It's difficult to know what to expect from Braun, as he's never really been an offensive-defenseman. However, he's on pace to hit a career-high in points and shots.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Picks up two points in win

    Braun dished out two helpers in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens. Braun was also a plus-2 on the night, and now has five points in his last five games. The blueliner has never scored more than 23 points in a season, though, so his current hot streak will likely come to an end very soon.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Gets two points against Oilers

    Braun recorded a goal and an assist Wednesday against the Oilers. The goal was Braun's first of the season, giving him nine for his 312-game career. Don't expect the 28-year-old defenseman to contribute much on the offensive end moving forward, as he has never topped 23 points in a season.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Returns from injury in loss to Pittsburgh

    Braun (elbow) made his return to the lineup for Monday's 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh, recording two penalty minutes and three shots on goal in 18:53 of ice time. Braun returned unexpectedly from his two-game absence Tuesday and turned in a solid performance. Braun played nearly a third of the game and ended with an even rating, an impressive feat considering his team lost 5-1. Expect Braun's ice time to return to his customary 21-plus minutes per night as he gets more comfortable in game action.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Out again Tuesday

    Braun (elbow) will be out for Tuesday's contest against the Penguins, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Braun would've been eligible to be activated off injured reserve Tuesday and was initially expected to draw back into the lineup, but the defenseman apparently still isn't ready. Mirco Mueller figures to continue to fill in on the blue line, while Braun's next chance to return will come Friday against the Ducks.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Practices Monday

    Braun (elbow) practiced Monday and is eligible to be activated off injured reserve for Tuesday's game with Pittsburgh, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports. Braun should be good to go Tuesday, as he isn't likely to have accumulated a lot of rust following an elbow infection. Braun has produced at an expected rate this season and remains an effective top-four blueliner for San Jose.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Undergoes procedure, hopes to skate soon

    Braun underwent a procedure on his left elbow after his cut in his left elbow got infected, and he hopes to begin skating again in a few days, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. The news effectively rules Braun out for Saturday's game against the Flames. While his next chance to return will come Tuesday against the Penguins, there's no guarantee he'll be ready by that date either. Mirco Mueller will likely continue to draw into the lineup in his place.
