Ward extended his pointless streak to seven games and skated to a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers.

Given Team Teal's high-scoring output, it's a shame that Ward fell on the undesirable side of the plus-minus. He's been a huge liability in the defensive zone, going minus-8 over the scoreless stretch. The Sharks and fantasy owners alike depend on the 36-year-old for special teams contributions, including work on the penalty kill, but he's fading at arguably the worst possible time.

News
Pavelski was scoreless with two blocked shots, a hit and two minor penalties in Saturday's 7-2 loss against the Predators.

Pavelski was playing in his 800th NHL game, but it's not one he will want to watch on video. The veteran has no goals and just one assist over his past six games. He and the other big guns for the Sharks have been shooting blanks lately, totaling just seven goals during their six-game losing streak.

News
Vlasic (undisclosed) declared himself fit to play in Tuesday's contest against the Rangers, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

It looks safe to activate Pickles in fantasy leagues abound, but we're not sure there will be many takers for a guy who has just two points through 11 contests this month. However, if there's been a relative constant to his game of late, it's been in the form of blocked shots; he's redirected 17 of those in March, doing so in all but one game.

Mouth - Day-to-Day (Updated - 3/27/17)
News
Couture (mouth) will not be in the lineup for Tuesday's meeting with the Rangers, according to Paul Gackle of The Gackle Report.

Couture, who was caught in the face by a puck, is not expected to be sidelined long-term, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports, but no definitive deadline has been established for the center's return. The 27-year-old has been a critical piece of the Sharks' power play where he is averaging 3:01 of ice time per game and has racked up 11 goals. Joonas Donskoi and Tomas Hertl figure to be the leading candidates to replace Couture on the top unit while he is sidelined.

Mikkel Boedker, # 89
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Boedker picked up a pair of secondary assists in Tuesday's 5-4 home win over the Rangers in overtime.

Boedker's second apple -- his 15th on the season -- helped send the game to the extra frame before defenseman Brent Burns ended up winning it for Team Teal with a man-advantage strike. Boedker qualifies as a bust needing 15 points to match his output with the Coyotes last year, but arguably the most disappointing facet of his slide has been the lack of power-play ice time (1:32 average) and having just one lonely point in that special teams situation.

Suspension - Day-to-Day (Updated - 3/27/17)
News
Haley has been suspended for one game for his punch on the Predators' Calle Jarnkrok, according to NHL Player Safety.

Haley will now miss Tuesday's contest against the Rangers because of the incident, opening the door for either Timo Meier or Barclay Goodrow to draw in. His absence shouldn't be felt from a fantasy standpoint, as the veteran winger averages fewer than 10 minutes of ice time on a nightly basis, but he does have a small amount of value in leagues that account for penalty minutes (110 this season). He should be reinstated ahead of Thursday's game against the Oilers.

News
Jones allowed four goals on 28 shots but came away the winner in a 5-4 overtime victory over the Rangers.

Jones certainly was far from his best, but the Sharks bailed him out to put an end to his three-game losing streak. Still, his recent play has been far from encouraging, as he's now allowed a whopping 14 goals on just 89 shots over his last three starts.

News
Tierney scored two goals Tuesday in a 5-4 overtime win over the Rangers. He sat out the previous contest with an upper-body injury.

The fourth-liner returned to the ice in style, also firing five shots on goal and skating to a plus-3. Tierney has now cracked the 20-point plateau in each of his first three NHL seasons and has displayed development with a continued increase in ice time (up to 14:32 on average this year).
