Simek has an assist in each of his two games since returning from a knee injury. The 27-year-old blueliner is up to six points, 44 hits and a minus-9 rating through 18 contests. Those numbers aren't enough to give Simek widespread fantasy appeal.
Simek (knee) posted an assist and five hits in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.
Simek missed seven games with the injury. The 27-year-old defenseman set up Joe Thornton for the second-period tally. Simek's return to the lineup likely won't impact fantasy owners -- he has only five points, 41 hits and a minus-11 rating through 17 contests this season.
Simek (knee) was removed from injured reserve Friday.
Simek should slot back into the lineup versus the Kings on Friday, though Mario Ferraro (upper body) and Tim Head will also both be hoping to secure a spot on the Sharks' third pairing. Prior to getting hurt, the 27-year-old Simek notched four points in 16 outings.
Simek (knee) is expected to participate in full practices soon and should be ready by late December, Sharks beat writer Sheng Peng reports.
Simek has sat out since Dec. 7, as he's tended to a meniscus injury, and the Sharks hope to have him back after the holiday break. The 27-year-old blueliner has notched four points and a minus-12 rating over 16 games this year. Once he's healthy, there's a chance he's sent down to AHL San Jose; otherwise, he'll bump either Mario Ferraro or Brenden Dillon from the lineup.

Simek suffered a lower-body injury late in November, but it's unclear if this is the same one. On the current timeline, he's expected to miss at least five games. As long as Simek is out, barring any call-ups, Tim Heed will draw into the lineup on the third defensive pairing.
Simek (lower body) is expected to play Saturday against the Islanders, Sharks beat writer Sheng Peng reports.

Simek (lower body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Islanders, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Simek recorded an assist, five hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Oilers.
Simek has been better than expected with four points, 22 hits and 15 blocked shots in seven games. The 27-year-old is partnered with Brent Burns, which has probably helped him produce more offense than he would if he was on the third pairing. Simek should still be considered more of a defensive presence, but fantasy owners in deeper formats may be interested if he can keep up the current scoring pace.
Simek collected an assist but went minus-3 in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Red Wings.
Simek had the secondary helper on Kevin Labanc's opening goal, but he had gotten off the ice before the goal occurred. He was on the ice for all three Red Wings goals.

In two games since returning from a knee injury, he's posted seven hits and nine blocks, showing plenty of willingness to use his body.

Simek (knee) tossed five hits and blocked four shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.
He skated 20:37 in the contest and showed no fear in using his body while paired with Brent Burns. Simek shouldn't be counted on for offense -- he's safe to avoid in fantasy circles.
Simek (knee) will make his season debut Tuesday against Chicago, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Simek was pretty solid as a 26-year-old rookie last season, notching nine points while posting a plus-7 rating in 41 games. The 5-foot-11 blueliner will have limited upside as a bottom-pairing defender that doesn't see any time on the man advantage, so he can be ignored in most fantasy formats.
The Sharks recalled Simek (knee) from his conditioning stint with AHL San Jose on Monday.
Simek maxed out his time in the minors, as he got back to game speed by slotting into two contests and recording two assists. The 27-year-old figures to be lifted from non-roster injured reserve soon, and he could suit up in Tuesday's home game against the Blackhawks.

After undergoing knee surgery in March, Simek has yet to suit up for the Sharks this season.

Simek (leg) isn't expected to play on the Sharks' upcoming road trip, Brian Witt of NBC Sports reports.
The injured defenseman will join his teammates for the road trip, but the expectation, for now, is Simek will sit out all five games.

Simek (leg) hasn't suffered a setback, but his recovery is taking longer than initially expected, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Simek has yet to play this year due to a leg injury and is still at least a week away from making his season debut.

Simek was handed a 10-to-14 day timeline for return on Oct. 1, but it appears that will extend longer than the latter mark. Until Simek is able to practice at full speed, he won't be able to play in a game. The 27-year-old blueliner will look to get in the lineup Wednesday against the Hurricanes.
According to coach Peter DeBoer, Simek (leg) is expected to be sidelined for 10-14 more days, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Simek played in 41 games for the Sharks last season, notching one goal, eight assists and 41 shots while averaging 15:13 of ice time. The blueliner should be a lock for the 23-man roster, but figures to continue spending some time in the press box while competing for minutes with Tim Heed and Dalton Prout.
