Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Goal and assist Thursday
Ferraro scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and blocked three shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Golden Knights.
Ferraro had just three points in March, getting on the scoresheet in the first and last games of the month with no points over the 12 contests in between. The 24-year-old defenseman was a noticeable presence Thursday, scoring the opening goal and setting up the Sharks' second tally. Ferraro is up to 11 points, 61 shots on net, 121 hits, 131 blocked shots and a minus-26 rating through a career-high 65 outings.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Chips in with helper
Ferraro notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Blues.
The assist snapped Ferraro's 11-game point drought -- his last contribution on offense was a two-point game Jan. 27. The 24-year-old defenseman has spent much of the season buried down the depth chart, but the Sharks' trading away of Jaycob Megna (Kraken) and Scott Harrington (Devils) has opened up a top-pairing role alongside Erik Karlsson. That could lead to a bit more offense down the stretch if Ferraro can hold onto that place in the lineup. He has nine points, 49 shots on net, 103 blocked shots, 85 hits and a minus-19 rating through 52 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Two points in OT loss
Ferraro scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.
The fourth-year blueliner had only one point, a goal, in his prior 16 games since returning from a foot injury in December, but Ferraro busted out with his first multi-point effort since Oct. 8. He remains something of an afterthought for fantasy purposes right now, only occasionally seeing power-play time on the second unit, but if Erik Karlsson were to be dealt, Ferraro might be the biggest beneficiary....

Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Plays through illness
Ferraro scored a goal and went minus-2 in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.
Head coach David Quinn described Ferraro as "sicker than a dog" in Saturday's game, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports. Nonetheless, Ferraro snapped a 12-game point drought despite playing a season-low 14:38 of ice time. Considering the defenseman played through the illness, it's safe to assume he'll be fine for Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes. He has two goals, four helpers, 31 shots on net, 59 blocked shots, 46 hits and a minus-20 rating through 31 contests, so most fantasy managers won't notice if he ends up missing a game....

Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Good to go
Ferraro (foot) will return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Flames, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Ferraro, who last played Nov. 25, has one goal, four assists, 24 shots on net, 47 blocks and 27 hits in 23 games this season. He has also averaged 22:49 of ice time. His return is expected to bump Jaycob Megna from the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Day-to-day
Ferraro (undisclosed) has been upgraded to day-to-day by coach David Quinn, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Ferraro was considered week-to-week as recently as Tuesday, but he felt good after practice Friday, hence the change in his status. He was placed on injured reserve Nov. 25, so he'll be eligible to be activated whenever he's ready to return to the lineup. He has a goal and five points in 23 games with 27 hits and 47 blocked shots this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Week-to-week
Ferraro (undisclosed) is listed as week-to-week, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Traveling with team
Ferraro (undisclosed) will join the Sharks for their upcoming four-game road trip, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Based on Ferraro's placement on injured reserve, he won't be an option for the first two games of the trip but could be activated ahead of Saturday or Sunday's matchups with Ottawa and Buffalo, respectively. Once given the all-clear, Ferraro should retake his place in the lineup, which figures to relegate Nick Cicek or Scott Harrington back to the minors.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Placed on injured reserve
Ferraro (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
That isn't good news for the Sharks, who are already without Markus Nutivaara (lower body). Ferraro has a goal and five assists in 23 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Deposits empty-netter
Ferraro scored an empty-net goal in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Ferraro's first goal of the year gave the Sharks some extra insurance. While he's played a massive role in all situations throughout the season, Ferraro's still more of a defense-first blueliner. The 24-year-old has collected five points (one on the power play), 21 shots on net, 30 blocked shots, 18 hits and a minus-10 rating through 18 contests.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Back with Sharks
Ferraro (face) will play Thursday versus St. Louis, per Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News.
Ferraro left Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to Anaheim in the third period, but he didn't end up missing a full game because of the injury. He has three assists, 24 blocks and 11 hits in 14 games this season while averaging 23:19 of ice time.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Exits Saturday's contest
Ferraro (face) will see a doctor after leaving Saturday's game versus the Ducks in the third period, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Ferraro was seen with a bandage on his face after the contest. He left the ice late in the third period after being hit with a puck and didn't return for overtime. The defenseman has just three assists through 14 games, but he's added 11 hits, 24 blocked shots, 16 shots on goal and a minus-10 rating while playing top-four minutes as a key part of the Sharks' defense. More information on Ferraro's status should be available prior to Thursday's game in St. Louis.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Registers helper in loss
Ferraro notched an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Ferraro has done well early in the year with three assists in four games. He helped out on a Nico Sturm tally in the first period of Saturday's loss. Ferraro sports a lackluster minus-3 rating that'll likely trend the wrong way all year, but he's added four shots on net and 10 blocked shots, and he can up the physicality as more of a defensive presence on the top pairing....

Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Good to play Friday
Ferraro (upper body) will play Friday against Carolina, per Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.
Ferraro suffered a minor upper-body injury during Wednesday's practice, which initially put his availability for Friday's game into doubt. Ferraro plays big minutes for the Sharks and is a strong candidate to record around 150 blocks and 150 hits this season if he can stay healthy. He does have two assists in two games this season as well, but traditionally he hasn't been a significant producer offensively and that's not expected to change in a big way in 2022-23....

Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Questionable Friday
Ferraro sustained a minor upper-body injury during Wednesday's practice, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Ferraro is questionable for Friday's game against Carolina. He got off to a great start this season, registering two assists in two games while averaging 24:45 of ice time. That said, he's not expected to be a major offensive threat over the course of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Snags four-year deal
Ferraro agreed to terms on a four-year, $13 million contract with San Jose on Thursday.
Ferraro finished the season stuck in a 48-game goal drought, during which he managed seven helpers and just 34 shots. As such, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much out of the blueliner in terms of offensive production, though he can certainly rack up hits and blocks having recorded 140 and 151, respectively, last season....

Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Posts assist Thursday
Ferraro logged an assist and three blocked shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Flames.
Ferraro has two assists in three games since he returned from a broken leg. He set up Timo Meier for a shot that deflected in off Logan Couture in the third period of Thursday's game. Ferraro has had his moments on offense during his three NHL campaigns, but he's mostly a physical presence. The defenseman is at 13 points, 131 blocked shots, 109 hits, 38 shots on net and a minus-11 rating through 51 appearances thi season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Returning to action
Ferraro (leg) has been activated off injured reserve and will return to the lineup Saturday versus Dallas, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Ferraro is expected to return to a prominent role following his 15-game absence, skating on the second pairing and second power-play unit against the Stars. He's picked up 11 points through 48 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Earns helper in return
Ferraro notched an assist, four hits and a minus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.
Ferraro logged 21:54 of ice time in his return from a 15-game absence due to a broken leg. He ended up returning about a week earlier than initially expected -- impressive, considering the Sharks had little need to rush him back. The defenseman is up to 12 points, 38 shots on net, 105 hits and 128 blocked shots through 49 appearances. He probably won't add a lot of offense, but his physical play is among the best in the league. Ferraro will likely log top-four minutes for the rest of the season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Mario Ferraro: Will travel with team
Ferraro (leg) will travel with the Sharks for the team's upcoming two-game toad trip, but he won't play in either contest, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
There's still no timeline for Ferraro's return, and he doesn't appear to be particularly close to rejoining the lineup, but he's nonetheless clearly making progress in his recovery. He's picked up 11 points through 48 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
