Sharks' Logan Couture: Snaps three-game pointless streak
Couture recorded three assists in a 4-0 victory against the Blues on Saturday.
The 29-year-old experienced a strong start to the season, but he slowed down at the beginning of November. In the six games prior to Saturday, he had just one assist and a minus-8 rating. Hopefully this is the start of another scoring spree for Couture, who despite the recent struggles, still has six goals and 20 points in 21 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Heating up
Karlsson scored a goal and an assist in a 4-0 victory against the Blues on Saturday.
It's been a slow start with the Sharks this season, but owners just had to remain patient, and Karlsson appears ready to reward anyone who has been. He has recorded multiple points in each of the last two games, and he has five points in the past three contests. His goal Saturday was also his first of the season. This mini-hot streak has his point total up to 12 in 21 games. It wouldn't at all be a surprise if Karlsson is one of the best fantasy defensemen in the NHL during the final three-quarters of the season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Continues goal-scoring explosion
Pavelski scored twice in a 4-0 victory against the Blues on Saturday night.
That means Pavelski has now tallied six goals in the last four games. Additionally, he has three assists during that stretch. Interestingly, those are actually the only three assists Pavelski has this season, but this offensive explosion has him up to 13 goals in 21 games. At some point, his 21.3 shooting percentage will drop, but one has to figure the assists will start to come any moment too. Pavelski has recorded at least 39 assists in each of the last three seasons. Feel free to ride out this hot streak.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Aaron Dell: Records first shutout
Dell stopped 30 shots in a 4-0 shutout victory against the Blues on Saturday.
The Sharks' No. 2 netminder didn't come into the night with very good numbers, but a shutout will make huge corrections this early in the season. After the shutout, Dell is 2-2-2 with a .920 save percentage and 2.47 GAA. In the right matchup, Dell is a quality streaming option, but keep in mind that he has posted a save percentage below .890 in three of his six starts this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Aaron Dell: On puck patrol Saturday
Dell will start in goal Saturday night against the visiting Blues.
Dell will be matched against a Blues team that defeated the Golden Knights 4-1 in Vegas on Friday night. San Jose's No. 2 goalie has an uninspiring 1-2-2 record, 2.96 GAA and .905 save percentage this season, but the silver lining is that the Blues rank 21st in high-danger chances based on a 46.46-percent clip....

Sharks' Dylan Gambrell: Promoted to top level
The Sharks promoted Gambrell to the active roster from AHL San Jose on Friday.
Gambrell has gotten off to a hot start, notching six points through seven games for the Barracuda. He had drawn into one contest with the Sharks this season and could have another opportunity to do so Saturday against the Blues.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Rourke Chartier: Sent to bus league
The Sharks assigned Chartier to AHL San Jose on Friday.
Chartier has only scored one goal while averaging 9:24 of ice time in 13 appearances with the big club this campaign, so this move won't affect any fantasy rosters. The 22-year-old pivot will return to a prominent role with AHL San Jose, where he'll remain for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Doubtful against Blues
Hertl (lower body) will "probably not" be available versus St. Louis on Saturday according to coach Peter DeBoer, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Hertl is slated to miss his fifth game in the Sharks' previous seven contests due to multiple injuries. The winger is currently on a point-per-game pace in his 16 outings while averaging 17:57 of ice time. Marcus Sorensen figures to continue slotting into a top-six role with Hertl sidelined....

Sharks' Brent Burns: Goals not coming despite massive shot totals
Burns recorded a power-play assist and eight shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Toronto.
Burns has no goals to show for the 26 pucks he's put on net in the past five games. After shooting just 3.6 percent last season, the career 7.0 percent shooter's converting at only 4.5 percent this season. Despite the poor luck, Burns is performing above a point-per-game pace with 22 points in 20 games. Few would have predicted Burns to have more than twice as many points as new teammate Erik Karlsson at this point.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Seven points in last three games
Pavelski recorded a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Toronto.
After potting his 11th goal, Pavelski added what was just his third assist of the season. All three of those helpers, along with four goals, have come over the past three games, so the veteran forward's firing on all cylinders right now. Any decline in his 18.6 shooting percentage should be offset by higher assist totals moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Two assists in loss to Leafs
Karlsson recorded two helpers -- one on the power play -- and four shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Sharks.
Karlsson stepped up against a familiar Eastern Conference foe from his days with the Senators, producing just his second multi-point game with the Sharks. Owners were certainly hoping for more than zero goals and 10 assists 20 games into his Sharks tenure, but Karlsson is still expected to pick up the pace moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: No bailout from offense this time
Jones allowed five goals on 34 shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Toronto.
Jones is still 8-2-1 in his past 11 games, but the Sharks have been winning in spite of him more so than because of him. If Jones' 2.94 GAA and .894 save percentage were to persist, they would both go down as by far the worst marks of his career.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Out Thursday, but will avoid surgery
Hertl (lower body) will miss Thursday's home contest against the Maple Leafs, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said Hertl will be reevaluated Friday, adding that the scoring winger will not require surgery. Marcus Sorensen -- who enjoyed a three-point outing against the Predators on Tuesday -- figures to see the biggest boost in fantasy value among Sharks while Hertl is out of commission.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: Defending cage versus Leafs
Jones will protect the net at home versus Toronto on Thursday.
After a tough start to the season, Jones has just one regulation loss (an 8-1-1 record) in his last 10 outings. The wins can be deceiving, however, considering the netminder has given up three or more goals in all but one of his previous eight appearances for a 3.10 GAA and has been bailed out by his offense. While they may be without Auston Matthews (shoulder), the Maple Leafs are still scoring 3.50 goals per game (tied for second-highest in the league).... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Deemed day-to-day
Hertl is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The Sharks will reportedly release another update on Hertl's status Thursday, which should shed more light on his status for the evening's matchup with the Maple Leafs. If Hertl's unable to go, Rourke Chartier will likely replace him in the lineup against Toronto.... See More ... See Less
