  • 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.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Joins in on scoring frenzy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/16/18) Karlsson contributed a goal and an assist in Sunday's 7-3 road win over the Blackhawks.

    Only five Sharks skaters have fewer points than Karlsson, who's brushed twine only three times with that same number of helpers through 34 games. However, if you're trying to catch lightning in a bottle, the Sharks are a good place to look for offensive production since this team tends to spread the wealth across the four lines and runs the league's ninth-best power play at 23 percent.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Helps out in big win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/18) Karlsson delivered an even-strength assist to open the scoring in Wednesday's eventual 5-1 home win over the Hurricanes.

    Karlsson was the secondary distributor on Barclay Goodrow's top-shelf laser with 16:16 remaining in the first period. You could do much worse than the Melk Man as a punt play in DFS contests since the fourth-liner is averaging 1.3 points per 60 minutes of play through parts of five seasons with Team Teal.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Expected to play Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/25/18) Karlsson (upper body) is slated to be in the lineup for Tuesday's clash with the Flames, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Karlsson failed to hit the 10-goal threshold for the first time in his career last season, while he also fell one point shy of the 20-point mark. The Swede should slot into a bottom-six role, where he can provide some depth scoring for the Sharks this season.

    Sharks' Melker Karlsson: Returns to practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/18/18) As expected, Karlsson (upper body) took part in Wednesday's practice session, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Karlsson won't be in action with the Sharks on Tuesday, but could hit the ice in Thursday's preseason matchup with Anaheim. With several players shipped off to Ottawa, the Swede should be in line for a bigger role this season.
