    Sharks' Matt Tennyson: Puts conditioning assignment in rearview

    Tennyson (concussion) completed his conditioning assignment with AHL San Jose on Monday, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Now that Tennyson is back from his conditioning stint, the Sharks reportedly have eight healthy blueliners on the active roster as they gear up for the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Team Teal has had the luxury of a long break since it clinched a series win over the Kings on Friday. In fact, not until late Wednesday night will the team learn if they are to play the Ducks or Predators in the second round.

    Sharks' Matt Tennyson: Sent down for conditioning stint

    Tennyson (concussion) has been reassigned to AHL San Jose on a conditioning assignment Wednesday. The move likely rules out Tennyson for Thursday's contest. If the organization's intent is to have the blueliner suit up for a game in the minors prior to seeing playoff action, then he also could be out for Game 2 on Saturday as the Barracuda are not back in action until the weekend. Once healthy, the 25-year-old is not guaranteed a spot on the bench given his lack of production this season.

    Sharks' Matt Tennyson: Remains without timetable for return

    Tennyson (concussion) skated with the team Tuesday, but has yet to be cleared to return, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports. As with most concussions it is unclear when Tennyson might be able to suit up for the team. Getting on the ice at practice is certainly a good sign, but the defenseman could still be out for a while. With just four points on the season, the 25-year-old's extended absence is unlikely to impact your daily lineups.

    Sharks' Matt Tennyson: Out again Friday

    Tennyson (head) will not be available for Friday's matchup with Buffalo, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. The Sharks are characterizing Tennyson's injury as a "possible concussion," which doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the 25-year-old blueliner hit his head into the glass and then against the ice after taking a vicious hit from the Blues' Ryan Reaves in Monday's matchup with St. Louis. His next chance to return to action will come Sunday against the Canucks, but his status for that contest appears iffy at best at this juncture.

    Sharks' Matt Tennyson: Likely dealing with concussion

    Tennyson is dealing with concussion-like symptoms but will still travel with the team for Wednesday's game in Colorado, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Tennyson presumably suffered the head injury Monday during the 6-3 win over St.Louis, and his status for Wednesday remains unclear pending further medical evaluations. If he's kept off the ice, Roman Polak could find an unexpectedly larger role against the Avalanche.

    Sharks' Matt Tennyson: Draws back into the lineup

    Tennyson will draw into the lineup for the first time since Dec. 8 on Thursday when the Sharks play the Flames. Tennyson has fallen out of favor with new head coach Peter DeBoer. He's played just 23 games and has been out of the game lineup for over two months. He gets a game on Thursday because of an injury to Brendan Dillon. It's hard to believe he'll be playing consistently enough to gain real fantasy value.
