    Sharks' Matthew Nieto: Picks up shorty Saturday

    Nieto came up with a shorthanded goal Saturday night in a 7-0 win over the Leafs. This was Nieto's second shorty of the season. The 23-year-old winger is averaging 1:19 of ice time in shorthanded situations. Don't come to expect Nieto to suddenly break out offensively as the Leafs simply didn't show up Saturday and Nieto is cemented in a bottom-six role and his average ice time of 12:49 severely limits his upside.

    Sharks' Matthew Nieto: Questionable for Saturday

    Nieto (lower body) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Wild, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. The exact nature of Nieto's ailment remains unclear, but it has put his availability for Saturday's matchup with Minnesota in doubt. If Nieto is unable to suit up for Saturday's contest, recently recalled Ryan Carpenter will make his NHL debut in the 23-year-old winger's absence.

    Sharks' Matthew Nieto: Demotion ahead of Saturday's game

    Nieto has been demoted to the Sharks' fourth line, reports Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News. Nieto is still an important penalty killer, but with just six points and one even strength goal in 19 games, the team is turning to other sources for offense. Nieto's demotion isn't likely to be permanent, but not only is he struggling, opportunities are being taken away from him.

    Sharks' Matthew Nieto: First even strength goal

    Nieto scored his first even strength goal of the season in Friday's win over Detroit. With three goals and three assists in 16 games, Nieto's totals are disappointing. Making matters worse is that just one of his three goals is at even strength. That's a red flag that things aren't going right. The other two were an empty netter and a shorthanded goal

    Sharks' Matthew Nieto: Grabs a shortie

    Nieto popped in a shorthanded goal in Saturday's loss to Dallas. It's Nieto's second goal of the year. He hasn't had the kind of impact he had last year for San Jose. That his second goal of the year is coming down a man says a lot about how little you can count on his offensive production this season.
