Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Deemed week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton is week-to-week after sustaining a lower-body injury against the Penguins on Saturday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Middleton appeared to suffer a left leg injury, but the team hasn't released any specifics on the nature of his condition. However, it appears to be serious, as head coach Bob Boughner said there's "a chance" he returns before the end of the season. For now, Brandon Davidson -- who was acquired from the Flames at the trade deadline -- is expected to fill Middleton's void on the bottom pairing.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's game against the Penguins, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Middleton's left leg buckled underneath him after a check from Pittsburgh's Patric Hornqvist in the third period. After the game, interim head coach Bob Boughner had no update on Middleton's status, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports. The 24-year-old blueliner appears set to miss at least some time. Brandon Davidson, who was acquired from Calgary at the trade deadline, figures to enter the lineup in his place.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Summoned to The Show
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks promoted Middleton from AHL San Jose on Tuesday.

Erik Karlsson (thumb) has been ruled out of the remainder of the campaign, so Middleton could be with the big club the rest of the way, or at least until Dalton Prout (upper body) is ready to return. The 24-year-old blueliner has notched six points while posting a minus-13 rating in 32 AHL appearances this season.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Back to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks demoted Middleton to AHL San Jose on Monday.

Middleton was recalled after news of Erik Karlsson's thumb injury. The 24-year-old blueliner was a healthy scratch for Monday's afternoon contest against the Panthers before being sent back to the minors.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Returns to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks recalled Middleton from AHL San Jose on Saturday.

Middleton will receive the call after news broke Saturday that Erik Karlsson will miss the remainder of the season with a broken thumb. The 24-year-old has gone pointless in his four NHL appearances this campaign.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton was reassigned to AHL San Jose on Monday.

Middleton has been held without a point in his four NHL appearances this season. With Mario Ferraro (upper body) expected back for Friday's contest, Middleton would've likely been watching from the press box. The23-year-old blueliner could be recalled as an insurance body after the holiday break, though.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks promoted Middleton from AHL San Jose on Thursday.

Middleton owns minimal fantasy value at the NHL level, having collected just one point through five career games. He tallied 19 points over 57 games with AHL San Jose last year but hasn't seen the same offensive success in the early going this year, collecting just a pair of assists through 13 contests.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Journeys back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks assigned Middleton to AHL San Jose on Wednesday.

Middleton was called up Tuesday and played against the Coyotes, logging 8:51 of ice time, a blocked shot and a hit. The Sharks don't play again until Saturday versus the Blues, and Middleton could be recalled again if Mario Ferraro (upper body) isn't ready to go.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Joining big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton was called up from AHL San Jose on Tuesday.

Middleton's recall coincided with Antti Suomela (undisclosed) being activated from injured reserve. Joachim Blichfeld was sent down to make room for Middleton on the active roster. Middleton will likely serve as defensive depth while with the Sharks.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Sent to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks assigned Middleton (upper body) to AHL San Jose on Tuesday.

Middleton has been sidelined since suffering an upper-body injury after logging just 2:13 of ice time in San Jose's season opener. The 23-year-old blueliner will spend the majority of the campaign in the minors, so he won't be a viable fantasy option in 2019-20.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Likely out through mid-November
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton is dealing with an upper-body issue and isn't expected to be ready to return from injured reserve until at least mid-November, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

One of three San Jose blueliners on IR, Middleton looks to be further behind in his recovery process than Dalton Prout (upper body) and Radim Simek (knee), who were both seen skating after Tuesday's practice. Considering that Middleton had only entered the San Jose lineup Oct. 4 against the Golden Knights since Prout got hurt two days earlier, the former may be a regular in the press box by the time he's healthy again.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Still facing lengthy absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Peter DeBoer said Sunday that Middleton (undisclosed) has a 4-6 week timetable for a return, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Middleton left last Friday's game against the Golden Knights with the injury, and landed on IR a day after. This news proves that the defenseman is dealing with a serious injury, even though the specifics haven't been announced. As long as Middleton is sidelined, look for Trevor Carrick or Tim Heed (upper body) to draw into the lineup.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Middleton left Friday's game versus the Golden Knights in the first period and did not return. The decision to place him on IR means Middleton will miss San Jose's next three games, at the minimum. In a related move, the Sharks promoted Trevor Carrick from AHL San Jose.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton (undisclosed) exited Friday's game versus the Golden Knights in the first period, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Middleton did not return to the bench at the start of the second period. He took a hard hit from Ryan Reaves late in the first period. The 23-year-old defenseman was in the lineup in place of the injured Dalton Prout (undisclosed), but it appears the Sharks will have to finish the contest with five blueliners.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks recalled Middleton from AHL San Jose on Friday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Dalton Prout (undisclosed) wasn't present at morning skate, so Middleton was likely recalled as an insurance policy in case Prout isn't available for Friday night's matchup with Vegas. The 23-year-old, who tallied one assist in three appearances with the big club last campaign, will be returned to the minors as soon as Prout is deemed fit to play.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Doesn't make 23-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton was sent down to the AHL by the Sharks on Saturday.

Middleton was among the final cuts, along with forward Antti Suomela. The 23-year-old blueliner will likely be the team's first call-up option should an injury befall any of the Sharks' defensemen.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton was recalled from AHL San Jose on Thursday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Middleton recorded 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) over 57 regular season games in the minors, but was unable to log any points in San Jose's four-game postseason run. In corresponding moves, a slew of other Barracudas were promoted to the Sharks, including fellow defenseman Nick DeSimone.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Bumped down to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton was redirected to AHL San Jose on Saturday.

The Baby Sharks are circling around a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs, so the fringe defenseman presumably will play down at the secondary hockey level for the foreseeable future. Middleton recorded his first NHL point with a helper in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Oilers.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Earns first NHL point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton recorded an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.

It took the 23-year-old blueliner three games at the NHL level to etch his name on the scoresheet. He's mostly been used as depth and insurance for injuries this season, and now he's getting a chance to make an impact while the Sharks take a cautious approach with bigger-name players ahead of the playoffs. Middleton is a seventh-round pick from 2014, so it's not extremely likely for him to see much action in the playoffs, especially if Erik Karlsson (groin) is healthy.

Sharks' Jacob Middleton: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Middleton, who has been recalled from AHL San Jose, will draw into the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Middleton has been solid in the minors this season, notching 19 points while posting a respectable plus-14 rating in 54 games. The 23-year-old is expected to slot into a prominent role Tuesday, skating with Brent Burns on the Sharks' top pairing against Vancouver.
