Top Nicolas Meloche News

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Gets on scoresheet with assist

    Meloche notched a shorthanded assist, five hits, two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild.

    Meloche had been held off the scoresheet in his previous 11 games. He had the secondary assist on Nick Bonino's shorthanded tally in the third period. Meloche is up to seven points, 133 hits, 46 blocked shots, 33 PIM and a minus-16 rating through 43 appearances. The 24-year-old will likely stay in the lineup as long as Jaycob Megna (head), Erik Karlsson (lower body) and Radim Simek (lower body) are all sidelined.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Physical in loss

    Meloche logged an assist and six hits in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    This was the fourth game this season where Meloche has had at least six hits. He also picked up his third point in the last six games, though it's tough to think that he's found a new level on offense. The second-round pick from 2015 has earned six points, 91 hits, 35 blocked shots, 23 shots on net and a minus-9 rating through 31 contests, mainly playing in a third-pairing role.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Nets rare goal

    Meloche scored a goal, levied four hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers.

    Meloche scored at 13:58 of the first period, and the Sharks maintained a 2-1 lead for nearly 30 minutes after that. The 24-year-old has two points in his last four outings, but he's not one to put up much offense. Meloche has five points, 22 shots on net, 80 hits, 18 PIM and a minus-10 rating in 29 contests, mainly playing on the third pairing.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Sacrifices body in overtime loss

    Meloche produced an assist, seven blocked shots, four hits and two PIM in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Ducks.

    Meloche's offensive contribution was the set-up on a Marc-Edouard Vlasic tally in the second period. The 24-year-old Meloche's seven blocks were more than double his total from any other game this season. The physical defenseman is up to four points, 72 hits, 32 blocked shots and a minus-12 rating in 26 appearances this season. He'll likely see a more advanced role until the Sharks can get some of their numerous injured rearguards back.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Good to go Sunday

    Meloche (undisclosed) will suit up Sunday against the Kraken, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    After Mario Ferraro suffered a leg injury that required surgery, the Sharks are down to six healthy defensemen, including Meloche. The rookie blueliner has three points through 22 games this season. He'll skate in a bottom-four role Sunday.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Sidelined with undisclosed issue

    Meloche (undisclosed) won't play Saturday versus the Bruins, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Meloche (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Islanders.

    Meloche suffered an injury late in the first period and was ruled out during the middle frame. It's unclear what injury the defenseman is dealing with. If he's forced to miss time, Radim Simek would likely draw into the lineup. The Sharks' next game is Saturday versus the Bruins.

    Meloche added an assist in a 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes on Sunday.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Scores first career goal

    Meloche scored a goal in a 4-1 win over the Capitals on Wednesday.

    Meloche had not played in the previous six games for the Sharks before knocking in his first career strike in this one. The defenseman is not much of a threat offensively through 21 NHL games, with a goal and two assists to his name across two seasons, but maybe the floodgates will open with this one.

  • Sharks' Nicolas Meloche: Plucks apple

    Meloche recorded an assist, three hits and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

    Meloche earned his first helper in five games since he was called up from AHL San Jose. The 24-year-old has been more of a physical presence with 14 hits and seven blocks. The Sharks are expected to get most of their regular blueliners back Saturday versus the Avalanche, so Meloche is unlikely to play more than just one more game before getting sent down again.

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

    Meloche (undisclosed) was waived by San Jose on Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
