Top Sharks News

  • Sharks' Rudolfs Balcers: Adds helper Sunday

    Balcers notched an assist and three hits in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks.

    Balcers set up the first of Timo Meier's two goals in the narrow win. The 24-year-old Balcers has gone 10 games without scoring himself, and he has just four assists in that span. The return of Jonathan Dahlen from an arm injury could reduce Balcers' role further, though he should remain in the top six. The Latvian winger has nine points, 38 shots on net, 45 hits and a minus-7 rating through 21 contests.

  • Sharks' Logan Couture: Two assists in win Sunday

    Couture registered a pair of assists, two shots on net, four hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks.

    Couture helped out on both of Timo Meier's tallies in the low-scoring win. The 32-year-old Couture has been boom or bust lately with three multi-point efforts and four goose eggs in his last seven games. The captain is at seven goals, 11 assists, 48 shots, 25 hits and a plus-8 rating in 20 appearances overall.

  • Sharks' Timo Meier: Scores both goals in win

    Meier scored twice on six shots, doled out three hits and blocked two shots in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks.

    Meier opened the scoring at 13:39 of the second period and added an empty-net tally in the third. The Swiss winger has been excellent in his last eight games, picking up four goals and five helpers in that span. For the season, he has nine tallies, 11 assists, 72 shots, 35 hits and a plus-9 rating in 16 games. He's finally back in the scoring form he displayed in his breakout during the 2018-19 season.

  • Sharks' James Reimer: Earns road shutout

    Reimer posted a 29-save shutout in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks.

    This was Reimer's 25th career shutout and his first since the 2019-20 campaign. He bounced back well from arguably his worst start of the season versus the Maple Leafs on Friday to put in one of his best efforts Sunday. Reimer improved to 7-4-1 with a 2.12 GAA and a .933 save percentage. The fact that he started Sunday indicates he's earned the trust of head coach Bob Boughner, and he should be considered the Sharks' No. 1 goalie going forward. Next up is a road game versus the Devils on Tuesday.

  • Sharks' Jonathan Dahlen: Back in action Sunday

    Dahlen (arm) has recovered and is in the lineup Sunday at Chicago.

    The 23-year-old rookie missed three games with the issue, but he's set to rejoin the team's top line next to Logan Couture and Timo Meier. Dahlen has tallied seven goals and nine points in 16 games this season.

  • Sharks' Evander Kane: Going on waivers

    The Sharks will place Kane (suspension) on waivers Sunday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    The forward, who was suspended 21 games on Oct. 18, will presumably clear waivers and be assigned to AHL San Jose. Other off-ice issues have complicated Kane's future and made it unclear whether he'll ever take the ice for the Sharks again.

  • Sharks' James Reimer: Starting in Windy City

    Reimer will start between the pipes in Sunday's road clash with Chicago, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Reimer struggled in his last start Friday against Toronto, surrendering four goals on just 17 shots before being replaced by Adin Hill in the second period of the eventual 4-1 loss. The 33-year-old netminder will attempt to bounce back and secure his seventh win of the season in a road matchup with a Blackhawks team that's averaging just 2.40 goals per game at home this year, 30th in the NHL.

  • Sharks' Noah Gregor: Gets on scoresheet with helper

    Gregor notched an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Gregor set up Nick Bonino's first-period tally. The 23-year-old Gregor has been listed on the second line since he entered the lineup last Saturday, but he's averaging just 14:05 of ice time per game, including 1:40 on the power play. He's added 10 shots on net, six hits and six PIM, but he'll likely be headed back to a bottom-six role once Jonathan Dahlen (arm) can return to action.

  • Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Logs assist Friday

    Karlsson notched an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Karlsson helped out on a Nick Bonino tally in the first period, and that was all the Sharks could get past Joseph Woll. The 31-year-old Karlsson has been in good form lately with a goal and four helpers in seven games since he returned from a stint in the COVID-19 protocols. The Swedish blueliner has 11 points, 28 shots on net and a plus-3 rating in 14 appearances, including five power-play assists.

  • Sharks' Nick Bonino: Goals in consecutive games

    Bonino scored a goal on four shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Bonino endured a long scoring drought to begin the season, but now he's scored in consecutive games. It might be a bit too much to say the floodgates have opened, but the water's at least flowing freely now. The 33-year-old is up to 33 shots on net, 22 blocked shots, 12 PIM and a minus-4 rating in 20 contests overall.

  • Sharks' Adin Hill: Perfect in relief outing

    Hill stopped 16 shots in relief of James Reimer in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Hill entered the game midway through the second period -- by then, the damage was already done, but he prevented the Maple Leafs from padding their lead. Hill trimmed his GAA to 2.93 with an .897 save percentage in 10 appearances. Head coach Bob Boughner has leaned on Reimer a bit more recently, but Hill is likely due for a start Sunday in Chicago.

  • Sharks' James Reimer: Pulled after yielding four goals

    Reimer surrendered four goals on 17 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Reimer just didn't have it Friday, taking his third loss in his last six games. The 33-year-old dropped to 6-4-1 with a 2.25 GAA and a .927 save percentage through 12 appearances this year. Adin Hill relieved Reimer in the contest and stopped all 16 shots he faced, so it seems likely Hill will tend the twine Sunday versus the Blackhawks as the Sharks begin a road trip.

  • Sharks' Jonathan Dahlen: Out again Friday

    Dahlen (arm) will not play Friday against the visiting Maple Leafs, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    The rookie will miss his third straight contest with the arm issue. Dahlen's next chance to return comes Monday as the Sharks kick off a five-game road trip in Chicago.

  • Sharks' James Reimer: Facing Maple Leafs on Friday

    Reimer will start against visiting Toronto on Friday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    A winner in three of his last four starts, Reimer will face his former team in the midst of one of the best seasons of his career. His .936 save percentage and 1.98 GAA through 11 games are among the league's best, but the Manitoba native is sure to have his work cut out for him Friday -- the Leafs are 10-2-0 in November.

  • Sharks' Marc-Edouard Vlasic: Chips in with helper

    Vlasic managed an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Senators.

    Vlasic earned the secondary helper on Timo Meier's go-ahead goal at 11:18 of the third period. With four assists in 13 games this year, Vlasic is little more than an occasional contributor on offense from his third-pairing spot. He's added just 10 shots on net, 11 blocked shots, nine hits and a minus-3 rating.

  • Sharks' Andrew Cogliano: Sets up empty-netter

    Cogliano notched an assist and two hits in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Senators.

    Cogliano set up Jacob Middleton's first NHL goal, an empty-netter in the final minute of the contest. The 34-year-old Cogliano has five points, 22 hits and 20 shots on net through 18 games as a bottom-six fixture. He's unlikely to exit the lineup often as a strong defensive forward and an on-ice leader for a young forward group.
