Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Not expected to play
Viel (upper body) isn't expected to play Wednesday versus the Flames, per the NHL media site.

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Ruled out again versus Sharks
Viel (upper body) will remain unavailable ahead of Thursday's clash with San Jose, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Viel has played in just four NHL games this season in which he has failed to register a point while notching just four shots. At this point, Viel may be hard-pressed to crack the lineup even once cleared to play. In his stead, Adam Raska will make his 2022-23 season debut in Thursday's contest.... See More ... See Less

Viel (upper body) won't be in the lineup Tuesday against Colorado, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Called up from AHL San Jose
Viel was promoted from the minors Monday, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Even with his promotion, Viel is far from guaranteed to suit up during the Sharks' four-game road trip, though an injury to Jonah Gadjovich (illness) could open the door. In the minors this year, the 25-year-old Viel has notched three goals and two assists in 18 contracts.... See More ... See Less

Viel was placed on waivers Sunday, per CapFriendly.

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Back at it
Viel (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blues, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Viel should return to a bottom-six role following his two-game absence. He's picked up only five points through 33 contests this campaign, so he won't garner much attention in fantasy circles.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Remains unavailable
Viel (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.
Viel will miss a second straight contest with his undisclosed issue. Another update on the 25-year-old winger, who's tallied five points through 33 games this campaign, should surface once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.... See More ... See Less

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Sparks comeback effort
Viel scored a goal on three shots, logged two hits and added two PIM in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Viel got the Sharks on the board late in the second period, and they carried some momentum into the third, though the comeback effort fell short. This was Viel's first point since Feb. 24 -- he's been a healthy scratch in four of the last 10 games. The 25-year-old has five points, 82 PIM, 64 hits and 20 shots on net in 23 contests this season, but he's on the fringe of the Sharks' lineup and only sees fourth-line minutes.... See More ...

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Assist and fight in shootout win
Viel notched an assist, four hits and a fighting major in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders.
Viel set up a Jasper Weatherby goal in the first period. In the second, Viel obliged Zdeno Chara's invitation for a fight in the veteran defenseman's record-breaking 1,652nd career game. A trip to the sin bin is a regular occurrence for Viel, who has 69 PIM in addition to four points, 17 shots on net and 47 hits through 17 appearances. His lack of offense in a fourth-line role limits his fantasy value to the deepest formats that reward his grit.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Goal and fight in overtime win
Viel scored a goal on two shots, levied four hits and added a fighting major in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings.
Viel dropped the gloves with Givani Smith in the first period in a fight that stemmed from the two teams' meeting a week prior. The 24-year-old Viel also contributed the game-tying goal at 3:18 of the third period, and the Sharks went on to win with a goal by Logan Couture in overtime. Viel is much more of a physical presence than a scorer -- he has three points, 28 PIM, 21 hits and seven shots on net through seven appearances.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Recalled to NHL
Viel was recalled from AHL San Jose on Sunday.
Viel is getting another promotion just for depth purposes, as he's not expected to see a lot of playing time. He's been promoted and demoted several times already, but he's yet to make his debut with the Sharks this season. He made 11 appearances in 2020-21 but failed to record a point.... See More ...

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Dropped to minors
Viel was demoted to AHL San Jose on Monday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Viel has frequently shifted between the NHL and AHL this year but has yet to get into a game for the Sharks. As such, the winger shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value the rest of the way.... See More ... See Less

Viel (finger) was reassigned to AHL San Jose after being activated off injured reserve.
Viel will see game action for the first time since undergoing finger surgery back in mid-October, albeit in the minors with the Barracuda.

Sharks' Jeffrey Viel: Will undergo surgery
Viel has opted to undergo surgery on the finger he injured during a preseason fight and will be sidelined long term, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The Sharks have yet to release a specific timetable for Viel's recovery, but he only appeared in 11 NHL contests last season and went scoreless with a minus-7 rating over that span, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status.... See More ... See Less
