Sharks' James Reimer: Facing Carolina
Reimer will be in the road crease versus Carolina on Friday, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Reimer will make his third start in a row and his fifth in the last six games. He is 8-14-5 with a 3.25 GAA and an .896 save percentage this season. Reimer's GAA hasn't been this poor since the 2013-14 season and he's never had a save percentage under .900 in his 13-year NHL career until now. He'll have a tough matchup against the Hurricanes, who are averaging 3.21 goals per game and have the second best record in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Nick Cicek: Drops to AHL
Cicek was reassigned to AHL San Jose on Wednesday.
Following the Sharks' acquisition of Jacob MacDonald from the Avalanche in a four-player trade, Cicek will head down to the minors. The 22-year-old Cicek has produced four assists through his first 14 NHL contests, but he'll likely see more meaningful minutes with the Barracuda, especially since defensive prospect Ryan Merkley was shipped out in the same trade that brought MacDonald to the Bay Area....

Sharks' Martin Kaut: Dealt to Sharks
Kaut and Jacob MacDonald were acquired by San Jose from Colorado in exchange for Matt Nieto and Ryan Merkley on Wednesday.
Kaut, who is currently in the minors, has five goals and eight points in 10 games with the AHL's Eagles in 2022-23. He's also contributed a goal and three points in 27 contests while averaging 9:08 of ice time with the Avalanche this season.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Jacob MacDonald: Traded to San Jose
MacDonald and Martin Kaut were traded from the Avalanche to the Sharks in exchange for Matt Nieto and Ryan Merkley on Wednesday.
MacDonald has seen time as both a defenseman, his natural position, and a fourth-line winger. The 29-year-old arguably hasn't been particularly effective in either role with two assists, 29 shots on net, 29 hits, 14 blocked shots, 11 PIM and a minus-3 rating through 33 contests. He should have a chance to compete for bottom-four minutes on the Sharks' blue line.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Timo Meier: Scores in overtime loss
Meier scored a goal on four shots in the Sharks' 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.
Meier opened the scoring for the Sharks, scoring on a wrap-around to beat Ville Husso. This goal now gives Meier goals in five of his last seven games and gives him 11 points in the month of January. On the season, Meier has 28 goals and 48 points in 49 games.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Erik Karlsson: Two helpers in overtime loss
Karlsson posted two assists and one shot in the Sharks' 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.
Karlsson assisted on both Sharks' goals Tuesday, adding to his bounce-back 2022-23 campaign. With this performance, Karlsson is up to 13 points in the month of January, while also snapping a mini two-game pointless slump in the process. On the season, Karlsson has 15 goals and 64 points in 49 games.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Matt Benning: No points in return
Benning posted one shot on goal and one blocked shot in the Sharks' 3-2 overtime defeat to the Red Wings on Tuesday.
After missing Sunday's matchup against the Bruins with an illness, Benning returned to the lineup and logged 20:36. He also contributed a hit and a blocked shot during the contest. Benning should occupy a spot in the Sharks' top-four defensive corps and second power-play unit for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' James Reimer: Takes overtime loss
Reimer stopped 32 of 35 shots in the Sharks' 3-2 overtime loss to the Red Wings on Tuesday.
Reimer was solid Tuesday, posting a .914 save percentage in the contest, but was unable to outduel Ville Husso for the victory. The former Maple Leaf has now dropped seven of his last eight starts, allowing no less than three goals in each of his last eight starts. Reimer should be expected to share the net with Kaapo Kahkonen moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Matt Benning: Back in action
Benning (illness) will return to the lineup Tuesday versus the Red Wings, per the NHL media site.
Benning missed Sunday's game versus the Bruins due to an illness, but it was never a long-term concern. Expect the 28-year-old to fill his usual top-four role, while Scott Harrington will exit the lineup to make way for Benning's return.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' James Reimer: Starting in Detroit
Reimer will defend the road goal Tuesday versus the Red Wings, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Reimer, who is coming off an 18-save effort in Sunday's 4-0 loss to Boston, has gone 1-5-1 in his past seven starts. He has a record of 8-14-4 this season with a 3.26 GAA and an .895 save percentage. Detroit ranks 21st in the league this year with 3.33 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Nikolai Knyzhov: Heads to AHL for conditioning
Knyzhov (Achilles) was sent to AHL San Jose on Monday for a conditioning stint, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Knyzhov hasn't played yet this season following Achilles tendon surgery in August. However, it appears as though he is finally ready to see some game action. The 24-year-old blueliner also missed the entire 2021-22 campaign with a groin injury.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' James Reimer: Allows four goals in loss
Reimer stopped 18 of 22 shots in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Bruins.
It was a tough night for Reimer, who allowed four goals on just 22 shots in the shutout loss. The 34-year-old netminder has just one win in his last seven starts, falling to 8-14-4 with an .895 save percentage. Reimer should hang onto the starting job in San Jose with Kaapo Kahkonen also struggling, but he'll be hard to trust behind a 14-25-9 Sharks team.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Matt Benning: Under the weather
Benning missed Sunday's game against Boston due to an illness, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Sunday was Benning's second missed game of the season. The 28-year-old could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday against Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Matt Benning: Not playing Sunday
Benning (undisclosed) will not suit up Sunday against Boston, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
It's unclear if Benning is dealing with an injury or if the Sharks elected to scratch him. The 28-year-old has 20 points through 46 games this season, but he's posted a minus-4 rating over the last eight games. Nick Cicek will dress in his absence Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' James Reimer: Starting in Boston
Reimer will guard the road cage Sunday against the Bruins, per Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.
Reimer was impressive in his last outing, turning aside 33 of 36 shots in a 5-3 victory over Dallas. He'll have a tough task Sunday, facing a first-place Bruins team that leads the NHL with 3.8 goals per game. Reimer is 8-13-4 this season with an .897 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
