Joe Pavelski is not slowing down this season as he can become a UFA at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old has 13 goals in 21 games this season and has six goals and nine points in his last six contests. The Sharks likely cannot keep him if he does not take a huge hometown discount as they still want to sign Erik Karlsson as well as a bunch of other RFA's and UFA's but he is showing little-to-no signs of his age as the Sharks hit the quarter-pole of the season.

Timo Meier had a couple of assists Saturday.

Meier is now playing alongside Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski and is scoring no matter who he is playing with. Meier has taken his game to another level (perhaps even up two levels) as he has 12 goals and 21 points in 21 games this season. Meier was taken ninth overall in 2015 and is showing everyone why he was taken so high as this has been a huge breakout season after he scored 21 goals last season.

Logan Couture posted three assists with a plus-1 rating, including one helper on the power play, in Saturday's 4-0 win against the Blues.

Couture hasn't scored a goal in 10 games dating back to Oct. 28 in Anaheim, and he entered the game on a four-game point drought before his big breakout performance. That goal against the Ducks was also the last game which he posted a multi-point outing. He will look to carry over the momentum into Tuesday's battle against the Oilers after two full days to rest.

Joe Pavelski picked up a pair of even-strength goals in Saturday's 4-0 victory against the Blues.

Pavelski chipped in with a plus-2 rating, a blocked shot and a hit over 19:15 of ice time while winning six of his nine faceoff chances (66.7 percent). He has posted at least one goal in four consecutive outings, totaling six goals with nine points and a plus-6 rating while notching a pair of power-play markers during the impressive run. He'll try to keep up the hot play Tuesday night against Edmonton.
Nov 18 - 4:47 AM

Erik Karlsson recorded his first goal of the season while adding an assist in Saturday's 4-0 victory against the Blues.

Karlsson also chipped in with a plus-3 rating, three blocked shots and two hits over 20:55 of ice time. He has managed back-to-back multi-point games for the first time since donning a teal sweater, and he is working on a three-game point streak which ties a season best. Normally this wouldn't be terribly noteworthy giving his production in the past, but it certainly is this season. It appears he is awakening from his season-long slumber.
Nov 18 - 4:39 AM

Aaron Dell turned aside all 30 shots he faced in Saturday's 4-0 win against the visiting Blues.

The shutout was the fourth of Dell's career, and the Sharks helped limit the odd-man rushed after coughing up nine goals across the past two contests. He allowed three or more goals in each of his past four contests, going 0-2-2 during the span. He squared his record at 2-2-2 with a 2.47 goals-against average and .920 save percentage. When Martin Jones needs a breather Dell has proven to be a decent backup option.
Nov 18 - 4:35 AM

Dylan Gambrell is expected to play on Saturday night versus St. Louis.

Gambrell centered the fourth line at the Sharks' morning skate between Barclay Goodrow and Melker Karlsson. He was just recalled from the minors and will get to make his second NHL appearance of the year.
Nov 17 - 2:58 PM

Aaron Dell will be in goal for Saturday's match against the St. Louis Blues.

Dell was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate and he will get the nod for the first time since Nov. 9 when he surrendered four goals on 31 shots in a 4-0 loss to the Blues. Dell has a 1-2-2 record this campaign with a 2.96 goals-against average and .905 save percentage.
Nov 17 - 2:55 PM

Tomas Hertl (lower body) skated Saturday morning.

Hertl was on the ice Friday as well, but coach Peter DeBoer said he probably wouldn't be ready to play Saturday night against St. Louis.
Nov 17 - 1:31 PM

Rourke Chartier has been assigned to the minors.

Chartier has one goal in 13 games with the Sharks this season. He only logged 5:39 of ice time on Thursday against Toronto.
Nov 17 - 11:56 AM

Dylan Gambrell has been called up by San Jose.

Gambrell has only appeared in one game with the Sharks this season. He has three goals and three assists in seven outings for the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL.
Nov 16 - 8:11 PM

Filip Sandberg went unclaimed on unconditional waivers.

Sandberg and the Sharks are expected to mutually terminate his contract. He might end up back in the Swedish league.
Nov 16 - 6:16 PM

Brent Burns registered an assist in a 5-3 loss to Toronto Thursday night.

Burns has three goals and 22 points in 20 contests in 2018-19. He's tied with Thomas Chabot for second place in the defensemen scoring race. Morgan Rielly leads the pack with 24 points in 19 contests.
Nov 16 - 5:56 AM

Erik Karlsson recorded a pair of assists in a 5-3 loss to Toronto Thursday night.

Karlsson might be heating up now with three points in his last two games. He's up to 10 assists in 20 contests in 2018-19.
Nov 16 - 5:55 AM

Marc-Edouard Vlasic netted a goal in San Jose's 5-3 loss to Toronto on Thursday.

That was Vlasic's first goal in 20 games this season, though he also has five assists. It's worth noting that with Erik Karlsson and Brent Burns both getting plenty of power-play ice time, Vlasic is averaging just 0:54 minutes per game with the man advantage.
