  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Battling nagging injury

    Sorensen (undisclosed) did not play Tuesday versus the Ducks due to a nagging injury, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Sorensen was announced as a scratch before puck drop, and this explains why. It doesn't seem like the Swede's injury is too severe, but he's not guaranteed to be ready for Friday's game versus the Kings. Noah Gregor took Sorensen's place on the fourth line Tuesday.

    Sorensen was placed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Friday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Sorensen has been a healthy scratch for five of San Jose's last seven games, so this doesn't affect the Sharks much. The 5-foot-11 winger has two points and a minus-4 rating through 15 contests this season.

It was the first point of the season for Sorensen, who had generated just three shots on goal and a minus-1 rating in the first three games of the season. The 28-year-old had seven goals and 18 points in 66 games last season and isn't on the fantasy radar.

  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Slides assist Sunday

    Sorensen had the lone assist on Melker Karlsson's tally in the second period. The 27-year-old Sorensen has racked up a goal and five helpers in his last seven games. That puts the Swede at 18 points, 78 shots on net and 55 hits in 65 outings this year.

  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Dishes helper in loss

    Sorensen picked up an assist and two hits in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Wild.

    Sorensen had the primary helper on Joe Thornton's third-period tally. It counts as Sorensen's fifth point in the last five games -- the Swede has struggled at times this year, but he's been solid lately. With 17 points, 75 shots and 52 hits in 63 contests, the 27-year-old winger is best left on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats.

  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Posts two helpers in win

    Sorensen recorded a pair of assists, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Penguins.

    Sorensen helped out on tallies by Timo Meier and Joel Kellman in the second period of Saturday's game. The 27-year-old Sorensen is up to 16 points, 73 shots, 49 hits and a minus-9 rating through 61 contests. He's picked up four points during a three-game point streak, but offense can be sporadic for the Sharks' depth forwards.

  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Ends goal drought in win

    Sorensen scored his sixth goal of the season in Friday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

    The 27-year-old banged home a loose puck for his first tally since Dec. 5, snapping a 25-game goal drought during which he managed only two assists. Sorensen's fourth line placement doesn't afford him much of a fantasy ceiling, but his output has still been disappointing on the heels of last year's career-high 17 goals and 30 points.

  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Slings helper

    Sorensen produced an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

The 27-year-old has just 11 points, 60 shots and 20 PIM through 51 contests this season. Given his current ice-cold run, he's best left on the waiver wire in fantasy.

  • Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Healthy scratch Saturday

    Sorensen will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game versus the Canucks, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Coach Bob Boughner expressed he wanted more "relentless" play from Sorensen, and hopefully this stint in the press box will send a message. Sorensen has one point over the last 19 games, and he fired just 21 shots on net in that stretch.
