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.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: Impressive in win over Avalanche
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.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: Tending twine Wednesday
Korenar will guard the crease for Wednesday's home clash with Colorado, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Since making his NHL debut April 10, Korenar is 2-4-0 with a 3.21 GAA in eight contests, not exactly a stellar start to his NHL career. Still, the 23-year-old netminder should continue to see plenty of action down the stretch as the Sharks try to determine their plans between the pipes into the future, though being tied to Martin Jones for another three years at a $5.75 million cap hit certainly muddies the waters....

Korenar made a season-high 40 saves on 44 shots Saturday in a 4-3 loss to Colorado.
Korenar produced the best single-game save total of his young career, but it wasn't enough to win a third straight start. The 23-year-old rookie dropped to 2-4-0 on the year with a 3.21 GAA and .896 save percentage.... See More ... See Less

Sharks' Josef Korenar: Beats Coyotes again
Korenar allowed two goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

Korenar has given up 16 goals on 149 shots for an .893 save percentage through seven appearances, and he now has a 2-3-0 record. The Czech netminder continues to see playing time, as the Sharks are unlikely to push for a playoff spot and Martin Jones has been uninspiring in goal this year.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: Facing Coyotes again
Korenar will start Wednesday's game against Arizona, Curtis Pashelka of Bay Area News Group reports.
Korenar notched his first NHL win Monday against the Coyotes despite allowing four goals on 25 shots. His 3.27 GAA and .882 save percentage through six appearances leave a lot to be desired, but the Sharks want to see what they have in the 23-year-old Korenar, so he'll likely get a heavy workload down the stretch....

The Czech netminder held on for the win, his first in six appearances at the NHL level. Despite the victory, it was a poor showing for Korenar, who gave up four goals for the third time in his four starts this year. The 23-year-old is likely to spell Martin Jones at times as the Sharks play out their schedule.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: In net for battle of slumping teams
Korenar will man the home crease Monday against the Coyotes, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Korenar will make his third NHL start after relieving the slumping Martin Jones in Monday's loss to Minnesota. The 23-year-old netminder is still in search of his first win at this level, and a visit from a Coyotes team that's won only twice in its last nine games presents a nice opportunity to notch that milestone. San Jose has actually been even worse lately, dropping eight straight heading into Monday's action.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: Comes off bench Saturday
Korenar stopped 15 of 17 shots in relief of starter Martin Jones Saturday in a 6-3 loss to the Wild.
Korenar entered the game to start the second period with the Sharks already trailing 3-0.

Sharks' Josef Korenar: Yields four goals in loss
Korenar allowed four goals on 39 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.
Korenar was under attack for most of the game, and he wasn't able to curb the Golden Knights' potent offense. The 23-year-old has a 0-2-0 record through four outings (two starts). He's allowed eight goals on 77 shots so far, and the Czech goalie is probably only going to see limited time. Outside of potentially drawing a favorable matchup for DFS, Korenar isn't expected to make much of an impact in fantasy this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: Starting in Vegas
Korenar will defend the blue paint during Wednesday's road game versus the Golden Knights, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 23-year-old rookie will attempt to secure his first NHL victory in a brutal road matchup with a scorching-hot Vegas team that's won seven straight contests.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Josef Korenar: Plays third period in loss
Korenar saved all four shots he faced in relief of Martin Jones in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Wild.
Korenar was lightly tested in his relief appearance after Jones yielded five goals through 40 minutes. The 23-year-old Korenar has worked as a backup during the road trip to Minnesota. The Czech netminder may give way to Alexei Melnichuk or Zach Sawchenko in the backup role once the Sharks return home after a two-game stay in Vegas on Monday and Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
