  • Sharks' Justin Braun: Scoring significantly less this year

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/17) Braun has just seven points in 47 games this season.

    The rearguard was able to put up an identical 23 points in each of the last two seasons, but has taken a major step back offensively in 2016-17. Where his game is developing, however, is on the defensive side of the puck, as his 84 hits and 82 blocked shots will attest. Braun had 95 and 140, respectively, last year, so perhaps the Sharks' coaching staff has asked him to take on more of a shutdown role. Nonetheless, his lack of scoring makes him a fringe fantasy commodity at best, even in leagues that count hits and blocks.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Scores insurance goal against Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/16) Braun scored a third-period goal during Friday's win over Philadelphia.

    It was just the second tally of the season for Braun, and with only six points, 36 shots and a minus-3 rating, he doesn't provide a lot of fantasy value. Additionally, he entered Friday's game starting just 39.6 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the offensive zone, which further hinders his upside.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Scores first goal of 2016-17

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/16) Braun notched his first goal of the year in Tuesday's shootout win over the Leafs.

    He's not much of a fantasy asset, as Braun now owns a mere five points in 29 games this year, and he doesn't contribute enough in the defensive stats to make up for that in specialty formats. At 29 years old, Braun's already probably about as good as he'll ever be, so there's no need to keep holding out hope for him if there's an interesting candidate on your waiver wire.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Has yet to record point this season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/31/16) Braun has failed to get on the scoresheet despite playing in all nine games this season.

    Sure, the seventh-year NHLer is known mostly as a defensive specialist, but his lack of even a single point this year is surprising given his hearty amount of ice time (20:05 per game). Braun actually put up 46 points over the last two seasons, so perhaps they'll start coming in bunches once he gets on the board.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Scores again in Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/5/16) Braun scored for the second consecutive game in Saturday's Game 3 overtime win over the Penguins.

    Braun only has six points this postseason, but has gotten the Sharks on the board in back-to-back outings and is logging steady minutes on the blueline. The 29-year-old played 22:59 on Saturday, firing three shots on goal and blocking five shots. While the offense is a nice bonus, he's a steady defensive presence on the back-end who will continue to see quality ice time.

  • April 11, 2015: Sharks' Braun Out For Finale With Illness
    Braun will miss Saturday's game against the Kings due to an illness, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.With Scott Hannan (face) also unavailable, John Scott will move over from forward to give the Sharks six blueliners. Though he occupied a top-four role on defense for most of the season, Braun's limited offensive abilities resulted in him finishing with one goal and 23 points over 70 games. His fantasy utility remains limited to very deep formats.
