Sharks' Alexei Melnichuk: Demoted to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melnichuk was assigned to AHL San Jose on Tuesday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Melnichuk made his NHL debut Feb. 11 in relief of Martin Jones, and he stopped all five shots over 9:11 of action. The 22-year-old's development will be best-served with consistent playing time in the minors. Melnichuk has strong potential, too, as he posted a .912 save percentage over 14 KHL games before this NHL season began.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melnichuk was placed on the taxi squad Sunday, per CBS Sports.

Melnichuk served as Martin Jones' backup Saturday versus the Golden Knights. If Devan Dubnyk isn't ready to return Monday versus the Ducks, Melnichuk will likely ascend the active roster again.

Sharks' Alexei Melnichuk: Makes NHL debut in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melnichuk stopped all five shots he faced over 9:11 in relief of Martin Jones in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Kings.

Melnichuk made a brief relief appearance for his NHL debut. The 22-year-old posted a 1.68 GAA and a .930 save percentage with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL last year, and he also had a 2.68 GAA and a .912 save percentage earlier this season when he was on loan with the KHL's Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod. With Jones struggling significantly and Devan Dubnyk (lower body) questionable for Saturday, Melnichuk has a slight chance to make his first career start versus the Golden Knights.

Sharks' Alexei Melnichuk: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melnichuk was called up to the Sharks' active roster Wednesday, per CBS.

Melnichuk's promotion suggests one of San Jose's top three netminders may be dealing with an injury or an illness. The 22-year old netminder has yet to make his NHL debut and likely won't do so anytime soon.

Sharks' Alexei Melnichuk: Shuffles to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melnichuk was assigned to AHL San Jose on Friday.

The Sharks don't play again until Feb. 5, so Melnichuk may stay in the minors until then. The 22-year-old posted a .930 save percentage in the KHL last season, but he's yet to play a game in North America.

Sharks' Alexei Melnichuk: Loaned to Russian club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks have loaned Melnichuk to HC Torpedo of the KHL for the beginning of the 2020-21 season, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Melnichuk spent the majority of the 2019-20 season with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL, posting an impressive 1.68 GAA and .930 save percentage in 16 appearances. The 22-year-old netminder will be recalled ahead of the 2020-21 campaign in order to get a chance to compete for the Sharks' backup gig behind Martin Jones duiring training camp.
