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
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Exits with injury
Coach Peter DeBoer said Hertl likely has a lower-body injury and he'll have an update Wednesday, Paul Gackle of Bay Area News Group reports.
Hertl notched an assist in 11:00 before leaving the contest. The young winger is on pace for a career year with 16 points in as many games, so the Sharks are hoping his injury isn't too severe.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Logan Couture: Minus-3 in win
Couture (lower body) recorded a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Predators.
Couture was left out of the Sharks' scoring parade and his rating suffered because of it. The 29-year-old pivot is now minus-5 in the last five games and has just one assist in that span. He'll look to turn it around Thursday against the Maple Leafs.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Three-point night
Sorensen scored a goal and added two assists in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Predators.
Sorensen put up three points against the Wild a week earlier, but he was pointless in three games since. Nevertheless, Sorensen now has nine points in 19 games and can be considered a value play in daily settings due to his high upside.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Lights lamp twice in win
Pavelski scored two goals in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Predators.
Pavelski scored a power-play goal in the first period, and he tied the game 4-4 late in the third frame off a pass from Marcus Sorensen. Joe Thornton sent home the game-winning score just 13 seconds later. Pavelski is smoking hot with three goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating over the last two contests.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: Hangs on in thrilling win
Jones allowed four goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Predators.
After the Sharks got out to a 3-0 lead in the first period, Jones yielded three goals in the second frame to tie the game heading into the third. The Preds' Rocco Grimaldi beat Jones on a breakaway to take the lead, but the Sharks eventually came back and Jones made multiple breathtaking saves down the stretch to secure the win. It's his fourth win in five games, but this showing will dip him to a .898 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Thornton: Wins game with 400th goal
Thornton scored a goal and fired four shots on net in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Predators.
It was an electric scene as Thornton took a pass from Marcus Sorensen and scored the Sharks' second goal -- the eventual game winner -- in 13 seconds to take the lead at the Shark Tank. With his 400th career goal, Thornton joins an elite club of just seven players that have played 1,500 games, scored 400 goals and dished out 1,000 assists. Among a few in that group are Gordie Howe, Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Logan Couture: Gearing up Tuesday
Couture (lower body) will play Tuesday versus the Predators, Paul Gackle of Bay Area News Group reports.
Couture won't miss a game after leaving Sunday's contest versus Calgary early with a lower-body issue. The 29-year-old pivot is on pace for a career year with 17 points in 18 games, but he has just one helper over the last four outings. He'll look to turn that around against the Predators' backup goalie Juuse Saros.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: Gets starting nod
Jones will patrol the crease in Tuesday's home game against the Predators, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Jones was sharp in his last start Sunday against Calgary, turning aside 29 of 30 shots en route to a 3-1 victory. The 28-year-old netminder will look to stay dialed in and pick up his ninth win of the season in a tough home matchup with a Nashvile team that's 8-0-1 on the road this campaign.... See More ...

Sharks' Logan Couture: Game-time decision versus Preds
Couture is a game-time decision against Nashville on Tuesday due to a lower-body injury, Paul Gackle of the Bay Area News Group reports.
Couture -- who was injured late in Sunday's clash with Calgary -- would likely be replaced on the second line by Joe Thornton if he is unable to give it a go Tuesday. Prior to getting hurt, the All-Star center was bogged down in a seven-game goal drought, though he has tallied four helpers during his slump. The Ontario native is averaging a career-high 19:16 of ice time and should continue to eat up big minutes once cleared to play.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Logan Couture: Suffers injury Sunday
Couture sustained an undisclosed injury in the third period of Sunday's matchup with Calgary, Paul Gackle of the Bay Area News Group reports.
The Sharks are off on Monday, so the team is unlikely to provide an update on Couture's status prior to Tuesday's game-day skate. With little details to go on, fantasy owners will have to take a wait-and-see approach in regards to the All-Star center's availability against Nashville. If the Ontario native is unable to suit up versus the Predators, Joe Thornton would slot into a second-line role with Rourke Chartier likely added to the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: Allows one goal in win
Jones stopped 29 of 30 shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Flames.
Jones was sharp and played like the goalie hockey fans are used to seeing in San Jose's crease. The Sharks' starting netminder will see his record move to 8-4-1 with a 2.69 GAA and a .900 save percentage. Next up for San Jose is a home contest versus Nashville, a game Jones should be between the pipes for.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Salvages return with late assist
Hertl registered an assist Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Flames.
The Sharks' winger returned to action Sunday after missing three games with a head injury. While Hertl was held in check most of the night, he did manage an assist on Joe Pavelski's empty-net goal with less than a minute to play. Having avoided a long-term injury, Hertl, with 15 points in as many games, should be re-inserted back into starting fantasy lineups and also be given serious consideration in daily formats too.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joonas Donskoi: Goal and assist in win
Donskoi scored a goal and assisted on another Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Flames.
Sunday's performance gives Donskoi 10 points on the year but marked his first time on a scoresheet since Oct. 28. The 26-year-old Finn has managed just three points in his last eight contests.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Evander Kane: Records goal and assist
Kane scored a goal and assisted on another in a 3-1 win over the Flames on Sunday.
Kane scored his sixth goal of the season in the first minute of Sunday's contest. The 27-year-old had been struggling of late, notching just a single point in his last seven games. Despite the slowdown in production, Kane has still managed 13 points in 18 games.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Three points in win
Pavelski scored a goal and added two assists in Sunday's 3-1 win over Calgary.
Pavelski's eighth goal of 2018-19 came on an empty net but was supplemented by his first two assists of 2018-19. The 34-year-old now has 10 points in 18 games; however, Sunday was only his second multi-point performance of the season.... See More ... See Less
