Top Sharks News
Sharks' Martin Jones: In goal against Stars
Jones will be between the pipes for Thursday's home clash with Dallas, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Jones is 0-2-0 in his matchups with the Stars this season, while posting a .865 save percentage and 3.62 GAA. Considering the Sharks are allowing a mere 29.0 shot per game (fifth fewest in the league), it could be another light workload for the netminder.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Thornton: No lock to play Thursday
Thornton is questionable for Thursday night's home game against the Stars, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports. According to Sharks coach Peter DeBoer, the veteran center is "dealing with a little something."
The vague disclosure of Thornton's issue makes it difficult to tell how much time he will miss -- if any time at all -- but we're talking about a 39-year-old who probably requires more day-to-day maintenance that your average player. Look for the Sharks to provide another update on his status ahead of the next game.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Rourke Chartier: Recalled by parent club
The Sharks recalled Chartier from AHL San Jose on Wednesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Chartier has played well in the minors this season, notching two goals and eight points in eight contests, but he hasn't been able to carry that success with him to the NHL level, as he's only tallied one goal in 13 appearances with the Sharks this campaign. The 22-year-old forward's next opportunity to crack the big club's lineup will arrive Thursday against Dallas.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Two points in convincing win
Hertl generated a power-play goal and an assist in Monday's 5-2 victory over the Devils in San Jose.
The Sharks have a penchant for creating scoring chances around the crease, and this time it was Hertl with the nifty spin move to guide the puck around a few defenders and past netminder Keith Kinkaid. Hertl is up to nine goals and 14 assists through 27 games, which has the Czech skater on pace for 20 more single-season points than he's ever had before.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Scoring rate off the charts
Pavelski recorded a 5-on-5 goal as well as a power-play assist in Monday's 5-2 home win over the Devils.
Pavelski picked up the trash by the doorstep for his 20th goal with 1:57 remaining in the first period, and then the captain would end up with a power-play helper on the game's final tally. Self-supported by a career-high shooting percentage (22.5), Pavelski has a real shot -- excuse the pun -- at 50-plus goals in his 13th NHL campaign.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Timo Meier: Averaging point per game
Meier produced a pair of even-strength goals in Monday's 5-2 home win over the Devils.
Meier's breakout season continues, as he just secured his eighth multi-point outing of the 2018-19 campaign. The net-front, power-play winger is third on the Sharks in points with 14 goals and just as many assists through 28 games.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: In control against Devils
Jones made 21 saves for a 5-2 home win over the Devils on Monday.
This was Jones' third win between five December starts. The Sharks ended up with a plus-10 shot differential and captain Joe Pavelski -- with a goal and an assist -- was among 10 players dressed in teal to have supported the sixth-year goalie with at least one point in this convincing victory. Jones suffered a loss to the Devils in New Jersey on Oct. 14, but it was a completely different story at the Shark Tank.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Radim Simek: Celebrates first NHL goal
Simek tallied his first NHL goal to complement a plus-3 rating in Monday's 5-2 home win over the Devils.
Simek has two points over his first five games on hockey's grandest stage. It's not all that surprising that the Czech defenseman is making an immediate offensive impact since he dropped seven goals among 27 points to complement a plus-6 rating for the AHL's Barracuda last season. Best of all, there's reason to believe his strong effort Monday could lead to more playing time on the top pair with 2017 Norris Trophy winner Brent Burns.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: Defending cage versus Devils
Jones will be in net for Monday's game against New Jersey.
Jones has had an up and down season in 2018-19, posting an 11-7-3 record in 21 starts, as well as a 2.91 GAA and .900 save percentage. The Sharks' netminder keeps following up a good start with a bad one, unable to string together multiple good performances in a row. Fortunately, Monday's matchup has Jones facing the Devils who have just one win in their last eight games. Start the 28-year-old with confidence.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Logan Couture: Continues scoring
Couture scored a goal and an assist in a 5-3 victory against the Coyotes on Saturday.
The 29-year-old scored San Jose's second goal and then picked up an assist on the empty-net goal to seal the victory. The multi-point night pulls Couture within a point of averaging one per game -- he has 10 goals and 30 points in 31 contests. Couture could easily raise that average to above a point per game soon. He's rather hot at the moment, having tallied four goals and 13 points in the last 11 games.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Aaron Dell: Continues to struggle in win
Dell allowed three goals on 20 shots in a 5-3 victory against the Coyotes on Saturday.
The Sharks spotted their backup netminder a three-goal lead, but the Coyotes responded with the next three scores to tie the game. Dell shut the door after that, though, and the Sharks closed out the game with an empty-netter. Despite the win, Dell hasn't been a very good streaming option lately. In the last three games, he's posted an .835 save percentage and a 4.72 GAA.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Aaron Dell: Ready to rock in Arizona
Dell will get the nod Saturday against the Coyotes, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
In nine starts this season, Dell is 3-4-2 with a 2.88 GAA and .904 save percentage. The Sharks' backup has especially struggled on the road in 2018-19, his only win away from home coming back on Oct. 9 in what was his first start of the season. For Dell owners, Saturday's matchup is about as good as it's going to get. The Coyotes have won four of their last five games but are coming off a loss to Washington. They rank 28th in the league in goals per game, scoring just 2.56 per 60 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Shows signs of life
Karlsson picked up two assists in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.
He added a team-high eight shots and four blocked shots, along with one hit. Karlsson has had a bit of a tough transition to life outside of Ottawa, managing only two goals and 18 points through 30 games. Those are strong numbers for other blueliners, but a disappointment for someone with Karlsson's talent and resume. Friday's well-rounded effort could be a sign he's just about ready to break out.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Martin Jones: Falls to Stars
Jones stopped 27 of 30 shots in Friday's 3-2 road loss to the Stars.
After a couple of strong performances, Jones took another step backwards. The 28-year-old has given up at least three goals in six of his last eight starts and 12 of his last 15, saddling him with a mediocre 2.91 GAA and .900 save percentage on the season.... See More ... See Less
