Sharks' Antti Suomela: Exits Monday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela (undisclosed) left Monday's game against the Panthers and will not return.

The Sharks announced that Suomela was still being evaluated but the injury was enough to prevent him from returning. There should be an update on his status in the coming days before Thursday's game in New Jersey.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela was recalled from AHL San Jose on Thursday.

Suomela will travel a familiar path at this point, having been jostled between the NHL and AHL multiple times in the past few weeks. His last stint with the club resulted in Suomela drawing in for just one game and supplying two hits over 13:07 of ice time, so there's not much fantasy upside to him at the moment.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks reassigned Suomela to AHL San Jose on Friday.

The Sharks don't play again until Monday against Calgary, so although he'll head to the minors for the weekend, Suomela will almost certainly be back with the big club prior to that contest.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Bounces back to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks recalled Suomela from AHL San Jose on Sunday.

Suomela stayed on the ice in the minors during the NHL All-Star break, but the 25-year-old will rejoin the big club ahead of Monday's game versus the Ducks. His fantasy value is minimal, however, as he's averaged 9:52 per game this season.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Demoted to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela was sent down to AHL San Jose on Sunday.

Suomela has tallied three assists in 11 NHL appearances this season. The Sharks are on vacation until Jan. 27 after the All-Star break and the 25-year-old forward will likely be recalled prior to that contest.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Slides assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela produced an assist in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.

Suomela had the secondary helper on Barclay Goodrow's lone tally in the third period. The Finnish center has assists in each of his last two appearances and three helpers in 11 games overall. He's not likely to make much of an impact from a fantasy standpoint.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Snaps slump with helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela registered an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Coyotes.

Suomela is the second-line center (on paper) for the Sharks since Logan Couture suffered a broken ankle. Despite the increased role, the Finn has just two assists through 10 appearances this season. Suomela also hasn't skated more than 14 minutes in a game yet -- the 25-year-old should not be expected to see a huge jump in production.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Cleared from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks activated Suomela (undisclosed) off injured reserve Tuesday.

Suomela missed a total of seven games while dealing with the undisclosed issue, and it's likely he'll enter the lineup for Tuesday's game against Arizona. The Finn has played just five NHL games this year, accumulating one point and five hits across just 8:37 of average ice time.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela (undisclosed) told reporters he's starting to feel better but won't be ready to play against Vancouver on Saturday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Suomela last played Nov. 29 versus Los Angeles, missing the previous seven contests. The center has just one helper in five outings with the Sharks this season and has averaged a mere 8:37 of ice time per contest. Even once cleared to play, the Finn may struggle to get into the lineup on a nightly basis.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Suomela still doesn't have a clear timeline for his return, although he's eligible to play Saturday against the Lightning. The 25-year-old has posted one assist over five NHL games this year.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Remains without return timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela (upper body) remains without a return timeline, Curtis Pashelka of Bay Area News Group reports.

Suomela's injury has been clarified as an upper-body one, but this news likely rules him out for Tuesday's game against Washington. He'll hope to get back in there by Thursday's tilt in Carolina.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Unlikely to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela (undisclosed) isn't expected to play Saturday against the Coyotes, NHL.com's Alan Robinson reports.

Suomela took a hard hit in the third period of Friday's win over the Kings and likely won't recover in time. Dylan Gambrell is expected to work on the fourth line in Suomela's place.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Unsure for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela isn't sure if he'll make the trip for the Sharks' game in Arizona on Saturday, Sharks beat writer Sheng Pengreports.

Suomela took a hard hit from the Kings' Kurtis MacDermid late in the third period, but he appears to have avoided a serious injury. If he doesn't travel, Dylan Gambrell or Lukas Radil could enter the lineup in place of the Finnish forward. Consider Suomela day-to-day for now.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela was recalled from the AHL by the Sharks on Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Suomela will likely serve as the 13th forward Tuesday against Edmonton, but he could work his way into a bottom-six role before long.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Among final cuts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Suomela and defenseman Jacob Middleton appear to be the team's final cuts in trimming down the Opening Night roster. The Finnish forward will be on the team's short list as far as call-ups should the injury bug strike.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Re-signs with San Jose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela signed a one-year contract with the Sharks on Thursday.

Suomela recorded eight points over 27 games last season -- in addition to six goals and 14 assists over 47 appearances with AHL San Jose -- and now will be able to look for a deeper role with the club. The loss of Joe Pavelski and possibly Joe Thornton benefits Suomela in that regard, but the emergence of Dylan Gambrell from the Barracudas could keep the 25-year-old in a bottom-six role.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Hit with qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Sharks sent Suomela a qualifying offer prior to Tuesday's deadline.

Suomela was decent in limited action with the big club last season, notching three goals and eight points in 27 appearances. He'll get a chance to battle for a regular spot in the lineup as a bottom-six center during training camp.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Promoted to parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Suomela registered 20 points (six goals, 14 assists) over 47 regular season games in the minors in addition to one assist in the Calder Cup Playoffs. The Finn has already seen NHL action with the Sharks this season, appearing in 27 games while posting eight points and averaging 11:19 of ice time per game.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Watching from press box Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela will be a healthy scratch Saturday night when the Sharks play host to the Flyers, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Kurz relayed this information from Sharks coach Peter DeBoer, so it's safe for fantasy owners to park Suomela on the virtual pine in daily contests. The undrafted center from Finland has adjusted well to NHL action, with Suomela adding one goal and three helpers to complement a plus-2 rating over 13 games, but he's currently mired in a three-game point drought and figures to benefit from having the night off.

Sharks' Antti Suomela: Notches helper Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suomela recorded an assist and five shots while logging 13:14 of ice time Saturday's 4-1 win over the Islanders.

Suomela is off to a good start in his NHL career with three assists in eight games despite averaging just under 11 minutes of ice time per outing. The 24-year-old Finn has plenty of offensive skill, but with the likes of Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, and Joe Thornton (knee) to contend with, he could struggle to get enough quality ice time to extend his fantasy value beyond deeper leagues.
