  • Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Opens scoring in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/19) Karlsson's 12th goal of the year gave the Sharks a lead, but they ultimately fell 4-2 to the Panthers on Thursday.

    Karlsson has three goals in seven games in March, which puts him at 16 points in 71 contests this season. The Swedish winger has scored between 19 and 24 points in each of his previous four seasons, and appears on track to land in that range again this year. He's a proven fourth-liner, but that's about it.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Buries both shots Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/19) Karlsson scored on both of his shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    He provided the last two goals of the game, adding insurance with an even-strength goal before capping the scoring with an empty-netter. The pair of tallies ends Karlsson's eight-game pointless streak. With 11 goals and 15 points this season, the fourth-line winger typically hasn't done enough to garner fantasy attention.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Snaps scoring drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/19) Karlsson ended a nine-game goalless drought when he scored the game-winner in Monday's 7-2 victory over the Canucks.

    Karlsson had gone without a point since Jan. 12, but had two points Monday, as he assisted on winger Evander Kane's second goal of the night. Karlsson has 13 points in 57 games and averaged only 11:17 entering this game. The fourth-liner doesn't merit much fantasy consideration.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Slumps before break

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/19) Karlsson notched two goals and a minus-5 rating in 11 games during January.

    Lighting the lamp twice in an 11-game span is actually a solid mark for Karlsson, who has never scored more than 13 goals in a season. However, his minus-5 rating is troubling and he fired only nine shots on goal in that stretch. He may be lined up in the top six when San Jose returns from break Saturday versus the Coyotes, but that could change once practices resume.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Surprising sniper in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/29/18) Karlsson scored two goals in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Oilers.

    San Jose's "other" Karlsson isn't the offensive threat Erik is, but he made an impact in this one with his first multi-goal game of the season. The 28-year-old has only six goals and nine points through 40 games, though, and his spot on a checking line won't afford him many opportunities to improve that pace.
