Top Jeffrey Viel News

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Back at it

    Viel (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blues, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Viel should return to a bottom-six role following his two-game absence. He's picked up only five points through 33 contests this campaign, so he won't garner much attention in fantasy circles.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Remains unavailable

    Viel (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.

    Viel will miss a second straight contest with his undisclosed issue. Another update on the 25-year-old winger, who's tallied five points through 33 games this campaign, should surface once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Out Sunday

    Viel (undisclosed) will not be available Sunday against Minnesota, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Viel likely picked up an injury Saturday against the Stars but it's unclear exactly what he's dealing with. In his absence, Thomas Bordeleau will make his NHL debut. An update on Viel's status could be available ahead of Tuesday's tilt with Columbus.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Sparks comeback effort

    Viel scored a goal on three shots, logged two hits and added two PIM in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    Viel got the Sharks on the board late in the second period, and they carried some momentum into the third, though the comeback effort fell short. This was Viel's first point since Feb. 24 -- he's been a healthy scratch in four of the last 10 games. The 25-year-old has five points, 82 PIM, 64 hits and 20 shots on net in 23 contests this season, but he's on the fringe of the Sharks' lineup and only sees fourth-line minutes.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Assist and fight in shootout win

    Viel notched an assist, four hits and a fighting major in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders.

    Viel set up a Jasper Weatherby goal in the first period. In the second, Viel obliged Zdeno Chara's invitation for a fight in the veteran defenseman's record-breaking 1,652nd career game. A trip to the sin bin is a regular occurrence for Viel, who has 69 PIM in addition to four points, 17 shots on net and 47 hits through 17 appearances. His lack of offense in a fourth-line role limits his fantasy value to the deepest formats that reward his grit.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Goal and fight in overtime win

    Viel scored a goal on two shots, levied four hits and added a fighting major in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    Viel dropped the gloves with Givani Smith in the first period in a fight that stemmed from the two teams' meeting a week prior. The 24-year-old Viel also contributed the game-tying goal at 3:18 of the third period, and the Sharks went on to win with a goal by Logan Couture in overtime. Viel is much more of a physical presence than a scorer -- he has three points, 28 PIM, 21 hits and seven shots on net through seven appearances.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Recalled to NHL

    Viel was recalled from AHL San Jose on Sunday.

    Viel is getting another promotion just for depth purposes, as he's not expected to see a lot of playing time. He's been promoted and demoted several times already, but he's yet to make his debut with the Sharks this season. He made 11 appearances in 2020-21 but failed to record a point.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Dropped to minors

    Viel was demoted to AHL San Jose on Monday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Viel has frequently shifted between the NHL and AHL this year but has yet to get into a game for the Sharks. As such, the winger shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value the rest of the way.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Back with big club

    Viel was recalled by San Jose on Saturday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Although Viel's been recalled, he isn't expected to be in the lineup for Saturday's game versus Washington. Viel has yet to crack San Jose's lineup this season.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Sent down Friday

    Viel (finger) was reassigned to AHL San Jose after being activated off injured reserve.

    Viel will see game action for the first time since undergoing finger surgery back in mid-October, albeit in the minors with the Barracuda. Barring any setbacks, the winger should be in the mix for a promotion later in the year, though he is unlikely to log significant minutes with the club regardless.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Will undergo surgery

    Viel has opted to undergo surgery on the finger he injured during a preseason fight and will be sidelined long term, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    The Sharks have yet to release a specific timetable for Viel's recovery, but he only appeared in 11 NHL contests last season and went scoreless with a minus-7 rating over that span, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Starts year on injured reserve

    Viel (upper body) was designated for non-roster injured reserve by the Sharks on Monday.

    Viel was going to be hard-pressed to secure a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night. Even once cleared to play, fantasy players should expect him to spend the bulk of the campaign playing in the minors with AHL San Jose.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Sustains upper-body injury

    Viel will be evaluated Tuesday for an upper-body injury suffered in Monday's matchup with the Ducks, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Viel appeared in just 11 games for the Sharks last season and is far from a lock for regular minutes heading into the 2020-21 campaign. In those 11 contests, the Quebec native garnered 10 shots, 22 hits and 23 PIM while averaging 7:16 of ice time. Viel figures to split his time between the NHL and AHL this year.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Healthy at training camp

    Viel (eye) was on the ice for practice Thursday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Viel racked up 22 hits and 23 PIM in 11 games, but he didn't record a point last season. The 24-year-old will compete for a bottom-six job in training camp, but he could also end up playing with AHL San Jose to begin the year.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Earns two-year extension

    Viel (eye) signed a two-year extension with San Jose on Monday.

    Viel was scoreless in 11 games during his first taste of NHL action this season, recording a minus-7 rating and 22 hits in the process. He missed the final game of the regular season with an eye injury after fighting the Coyotes' Michale Bunting but he's expected to be ready for training camp. The 24-year-old winger will likely see most of his playing time in a bottom-six role next season.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Sidelined for season finale

    Viel (eye) won't play in Wednesday's season finale against Vegas, Curtis Pashelka of Bay Area News Group reports.

    Viel is dealing with eye irritation as a result of Saturday's scrap with Arizona's Michael Bunting. The 24-year-old Viel appeared in 11 games with the Sharks this season but failed to notch his first NHL point. He'll have plenty of time to heal up this offseason.

  • Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Departs with eye injury

    Viel (eye) left Saturday's game versus the Coyotes in the first period, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Viel engaged in a scuffle with Michael Bunting in the first period, and Bunting caught Viel in the eye during the physical battle. The 24-year-old Viel wasn't able to return, and he may be held out of the lineup if he's still battling the injury ahead of Wednesday's season finale versus the Golden Knights.

    Viel was promoted from the taxi squad for Monday's tilt with the Ducks, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
