  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Inks two-year pact

    Megna secured a two-year, $1.525 million contract with the Sharks on Monday.

    Megna played in 44 games for the Sharks this season, a new career high, in which he garnered two goals, six helpers and 71 hits while averaging 19:07 of ice time. While the 29-year-old blueliner could earn himself a permanent spot in the lineup during training camp, he offers limited offensive upside and therefore shouldn't be expected to offer more than mid-range fantasy value, at best, heading into next season.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Tacks on helper

    Megna posted an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.

    Megna has picked up the pace a bit lately with three helpers in his last two outings. The 29-year-old defenseman will likely finish the year in a top-four role after Erik Karlsson (lower body) was deemed unlikely to return this season. Megna has eight points, 36 shots on net, 86 blocked shots, 68 hits and an even plus-minus rating through 42 outings.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Plucks pair of apples

    Megna notched two assists and three blocked shots in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Golden Knights.

    Megna helped out on goals by Tomas Hertl and Nick Bonino in the first two periods of the game. These were Megna's first points since he missed one game with a head injury. The defenseman has two goals, five helpers, 36 shots on net, 84 blocked shots and 67 hits through 41 contests overall while mainly serving as a top-four option this season.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Back at it

    Megna (head) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Megna will likely return to a top-four role following his one-game absence. He's picked up five points through 37 contests this campaign.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Unavailable Sunday

    Megna (head) will not play Sunday against the Wild, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Megna took a puck to the head Saturday against Dallas and will miss at least one game as a result. San Jose's next game is Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, but it's unclear when the team expects him to return. Santeri Hatakka will dress in his place.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Provides helper in Thursday's loss

    Megna notched an assist, two shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Flames.

    Megna had a shot attempt in the first period that was redirected in by Nick Bonino. This was Megna's second assist in his last three games, though that's an unusually strong run of offense for the 29-year-old blueliner. He's at four points, 31 shots on net, 67 blocked shots, 54 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 33 contests this season. That matches his scoring output from his last campaign of NHL action in 2018-19. As a defensive presence, Megna has been relied on for top-four minutes for the Sharks in 2021-22.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Lends assist in loss

    Megna recorded an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.

    Megna ended a five-game point drought with a helper on defense partner Brent Burns' second-period tally. The 29-year-old Megna doesn't add much on offense -- he has just three points through 31 contests this season. The American blueliner has added 65 blocked shots, 49 hits and 12 PIM as a defensive complement to Burns on the Sharks' top pairing since Jacob Middleton was traded to the Wild at the deadline.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Grabs rare assist

    Megna recorded an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

    This was just Megna's second point of the season -- his other was a goal Jan. 22 against the Lightning. The 29-year-old missed four weeks after undergoing foot surgery in February. The defenseman has contributed 23 shots on net, 41 hits, 45 blocked shots, 12 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 25 outings. He's seen consistent playing time on the Sharks' blue line and should continue to do so until Mario Ferraro (leg) or Radim Simek (undisclosed) return.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Cleared to return Thursday

    Megna (foot) was cleared Wednesday to play in Thursday's tilt versus Los Angeles, per Corey Masisak of The Athletic.

    Megna has missed the last 10 games while dealing with a foot injury that required surgery in February. The 29-year-old has averaged 18:02 of ice time and lit the lamp once over 19 appearances this season.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Lands on IR

    Megna (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Megna has been struggling through a lower-body injury over the last four games, Pashelka adds. The 29-year-old defenseman has averaged 19:11 of ice time and lit the lamp once over the last 10 games. His injured reserve designation comes with a minimum seven-day absence and, as a result, he will not be eligible to participate in Monday's tilt versus Edmonton and Thursday's contest against Vancouver.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Undergoes surgery

    Megna has undergone surgery to repair a displaced fracture in his foot and will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Megna's extended absence will test the Sharks' depth at defense, but it shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up one goal through 19 contests this campaign. Another update on Megna should surface once he's ready to rejoin the lineup.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: In Wednesday's lineup

    Megna (undisclosed) is on San Jose's second defense pairing Wednesday in Washington.

    Megna was initially deemed questionable for the road contest after hurting himself on a blocked shot Saturday versus Tampa Bay. The 29-year-old defenseman has just one point in 15 games this season.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Questionable for Wednesday

    Megna (undisclosed) was ruled questionable for Wednesday's game in Washington, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Credited with lone goal

    Megna scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Sharks.

    Megna put a shot on net that beat Brian Elliott late in the first period. It appeared Timo Meier had gotten a piece of the puck, but Megna was officially credited with the tally barring a post-game scoring change. It was the 29-year-old defenseman's first point in 15 games with the Sharks this season. He's added 13 shots on net, 24 blocked shots, 18 hits, eight PIM and a plus-1 rating while filling a bottom-four role.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Joining big club

    Megna was called up from AHL San Jose on Saturday, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Megna is expected to enter the lineup immediately for Saturday's game versus the Jets as the Sharks deal with a COVID-19 outbreak within the organization. With 43 games of NHL experience to his name, Megna could end up in a more advanced role, as it appears the Sharks' blue line has been hardest hit by the outbreak.

  • Sharks' Jaycob Megna: Placed on waivers

    Megna was waived by the Sharks on Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    The 28-year-old blueliner hasn't seen any NHL action since the 2018-19 season where he scored four points in 28 appearances with Anaheim. He's expected to spend a majority of the 2021-22 campaign with AHL San Jose after skating in 36 games with the minor-league club last season.
