Korenar was sent to AHL San Jose on Thursday, per CapFriendly. Korenar notched a 3-5-0 record with a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 10 games this season. He could open the 2021-22 campaign as the backup to Martin Jones if the Sharks don't sign another goalie in the offseason.
Korenar was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly. Korenar is inactive for the Sharks' regular-season finale as Alexei Melnichuk gets another chance to impress the coaching staff. The 23-year-old Korenar posted a 3-5-0 record with a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 10 appearances this year. He'll likely be competing for a job with the big club in training camp ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Korenar yielded four goals on 33 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes. The fifth goal was an empty-netter. Korenar was fairly solid for the first 30 minutes, but the Coyotes' offense rallied from behind. This result left Korenar with his fourth loss in seven starts. He fell to 3-5-0 with a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 10 appearances overall. Korenar is likely set to sit out Saturday's rematch with the Coyotes as Alexei Melnichuk makes his first NHL start.
Korenar is on track to start between the pipes in Friday's home game against Arizona, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Korenar was sharp in his last start Wednesday versus Colorado, stopping 30 of 32 shots en route to an impressive 3-2 victory. He'll attempt to earn his fourth win of the campaign in a home matchup with a slumping Coyotes club that's lost three of its last four games.
Korenar allowed two goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche. Korenar gave up a pair of second-period goals, but he shook it off and played perfectly to backstop the Sharks' third-period comeback. The 23-year-old goalie continues to eat into Martin Jones' playing time. Korenar has a 3-4-0 record with a 3.04 GAA and a .902 save percentage in nine games. The Czech netminder will likely see at least one more start in the Sharks' last three contests of the season.
