  • Sharks' Justin Braun: Sets up goal in overtime loss to Vegas

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/18) Braun assisted on the game-tying goal in Game 3 against the Golden Knights, but Vegas prevailed in overtime, 4-3.

    This was Braun's first point of the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs, but he's done a terrific job within his own zone. We're talking 21 blocked shots through four games against the Ducks and three more facing the Golden Knights in the conference semifinals. Of course, it's important to know just how far a defensive specialist can take you in fantasy pools. Despite averaging 24:19 of ice time in the current series, Braun isn't doing nearly enough with the puck to warrant a look in most settings.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Returns to practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/27/18) Braun (illness) rejoined his teammates at practice Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    Braun didn't play in Sunday's matchup against the Oilers because of the bug, but he is slated to retake the ice alongside Marc-Edouard Vlasic on the second pairing Tuesday evening. The veteran blueliner is having a career year offensively for the Sharks despite being absent from the power play, owning 26 points (two goals, 24 assists) and a plus-8 rating over 62 contests.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Out with sickness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/18) Braun (illness) won't play Sunday against the Wild, Paul Gackle of The Mercury News reports.

    Braun is having his best year yet, compiling two goals, 26 points, 118 hits and 120 blocked shots through 61 games. This is the first game that he'll sit out this season, and Tim Heed enters the lineup in his place. According to A.J. Jakubec of TSN, the Sharks have major interest in a trade for the Senators' Erik Karlsson, so it's fair to think Braun could be on the trading block with three years left on a $3.8 million per year contract.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Sets career high in points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/18) Braun netted his second goal of the season and had an assist in Sunday's win over Dallas.

    Braun is riding a three-game point streak and is now up to a career-high 24 points in 59 games. He logs heavy minutes and dishes out plenty of hits, making him of value in deeper leagues. A career offensive season at age 31 is a tad surprising, but Braun has always had decent offensive awareness and has a strong shot.

    Sharks' Justin Braun: Riding three-game point streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/17) Braun tallied an assist in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers.

    Braun now has three assists during this point streak, bringing his total up to 15 on the year. The American defenseman is on pace to destroy his career high of 23, and since Nov. 22, he's failed to register a point just three times. For those desperate for defensive help, Braun is a great candidate to fill the void in all but the shallowest of leagues.
