The Sharks assigned Middleton to AHL San Jose on Tuesday.

Middleton was called up as depth since Erik Karlsson (lower body) and Marc-Edouard Vlasic (undisclosed) were both out for Tuesday's game versus the Capitals. Vlasic is expected to return after the All-Star break and Karlsson's chances look good as well, so Middleton likely won't be recalled until there's another injury to the blue line.
