Sharks Goaltending

The NHL loves a spectacle, and the Stadium Series game at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colorado was certainly that. Unfortunately, the game featured a major injury to one of the team's starting goaltenders. Also, two Pacific Division goalies had major shutouts on Saturday. Grubauer Injured Outdoors The Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings have been awaiting Saturday's Stadium Series game all season. They debuted new threads months ago, and have spent several days in Colorado Springs at the Air Force Academy soaking in the festivities. The goalies even got new buckets for the occasion. Playing at night with temperatures below zero, the two teams struggled for traction in the unfamiliar environs. Philipp Grubauer got the start for the Avalanche, facing off against Jonathan Quick of the Kings.

Trade Deadline

Only about a week is left before the trade deadline on Feb. 24. Given that the San Jose Sharks are 10 points out of the final wild card spot in the Western Conference and with injuries to centers Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, and more recently defenseman Erik Karlsson, the Sharks should be sellers. Related: San Jose Sharks - A Brief History Consideration on which players could be traded include: whether they are unrestricted free agents (UFA) at the end of the season, their cap hit, whether the Sharks would want to re-sign them, whether they have a no-movement clause, and, of course, will they add value to the team they are joining. With Hertl and Karlsson out for the season, now placed on long-term injury reserve, $17.125 million has been freed up in the Sharks’ cap space. In a trade deadline deal, San Jose will be able to take on contracts that expire at the end of the 2019-20 season or eat some of the 2019-20 salary of a player they move. The Sharks are without...

San Jose Sharks

The NHL Department of Player Safety has suspended San Jose Sharks' forward Evander Kane three games for elbowing Winnipeg Jets' defensman Neal Pionk. Incident Occurred Friday The play in question occurred in the third period of the Sharks' 3-2 win at Bell MTS Place last night. Kane, who had been repeatedly targeting and attempting to check Pionk through the course of the game, delivered a forceful elbow to Pionk's head while the latter was turned and playing the puck in the corner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjKZNM9Z9H4 Kane was assessed a two-minute elbowing minor on the play; Pionk was slow to get up, but remained in the game. In a video explaining the suspension, the Department of Player Safety said: "Kane does not keep his arm close to his chest to deliver a full body hit, but instead raises his arm up and away from his core and directly into Pionk's head. It is also important to note Kane is in control of this hit at all times... what causes this hit...

San Jose Sharks

The San Jose Sharks have been dealt a big blow to their blue line as Erik Karlsson will miss the rest of the season with a broken left thumb. https://twitter.com/SanJoseSharks/status/1228750413312204801 Karlsson suffered the injury last night in the Sharks’ 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets, in which he skated 19:26 and was a minus-one. The injury will require surgery, and with the Sharks 10 points out of the Western Conference’s second wild card position with 54 points and a 25-28-4 record, it would make no sense for the team to rush him back into action. Karlsson is expected to be fully healed in time for 2020 training camp come September. The speedy offensive defenceman has been a stalwart on the Sharks’ back end this season, recording six goals and 34 assists while skating an average of 24:31, second only to Brent Burns. Karlsson recorded six goals and 34 assists this season prior to his injury. (Photo by Samuel Stringer/Icon Sportswire via Getty...
