Sharks' Steven Lorentz: Gets two points Thursday
Lorentz provided a goal and an assist in San Jose's 5-2 loss to Edmonton on Thursday.
Lorentz was held off the scoresheet over his previous three outings. His goal was contributed while the Sharks had the man advantage, and it narrowed Edmonton's lead to 4-2 late in the second period. The Sharks' season is over with Lorentz having 10 goals and 19 points in 80 contests.

Sharks' Noah Gregor: Pots lone goal in loss
Gregor scored a goal on three shots, added two hits and blocked two shots in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Flames.
Gregor was able to score on Dustin Wolf in the Calgary netminder's NHL debut. That goal was it for the Sharks' offense, and it's fitting that Gregor got it. The 24-year-old has five tallies and four assists over his last 10 outings, continuing his strong push to end the 2022-23 campaign. He's at nine tallies, 16 points, 114 shots, 96 hits and a minus-10 rating through 56 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Sharks' Kaapo Kahkonen: Kept busy in loss
Kahkonen stopped 46 of 48 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Flames. The third goal was an empty-netter.
Kahkonen was very busy between the pipes as the Flames stayed true to their high-volume shooting tendencies. While it was a third straight loss for Kahkonen, he played well. The 26-year-old goalie is down to 9-20-7 with a 3.85 GAA and an .883 save percentage through 37 games, which is likely where he'll finish the season assuming he doesn't start Thursday in Edmonton....
