Aaron Dell allowed seven goals on 46 shots in Thursday's 7-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

The Sharks were only down 2-1 late in the second period, but the Predators managed to score one more goal in that frame before adding four more in the third. Dell had allowed six goals in a game twice this season, but it's the first time he allows seven. He now has a 14-5-3 record with a 2.71 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage. Dell will continue to serve as Martin Jones' backup, which means he won't have any fantasy value.

Logan Couture found the back of the net in Thursday's ugly 7-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Couture's backhander from below the goal line went off of Predators goalie Pekka Rinne and into the net. The second-period tally cut San Jose's deficit to 2-1 at the time, but the flood gates opened after that. Couture finished the night with a minus-1 rating, six shots on goal and one hit in 21:47 of ice time. The Sharks forward has 25 goals and 47 points in 57 games this season. The 28-year-old now has eight points in his last eight games. Kevin Labanc and Justin Braun registered the assists on San Jose's only goal.

Paul Martin will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Nashville Predators.

Mikkel Boedker has been red hot lately.

Boedker has five goals and seven points in his last four games. That's propelled him to 12 goals and 24 points in 52 contests this season. If you haven't already, you could try adding him now in the hopes that there's a bit more left in his hot streak, but under normal circumstances he doesn't have much value in standard fantasy leagues.

Chris Tierney registered an assist in San Jose's 3-2 win over St. Louis Tuesday night.

That put Tierney on a three-game point streak. He has 14 goals and 30 points in 60 contests this season. This is the first time that he's reached the 30-point milestone.

Martin Jones stopped 31 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

All five goals scored in the game came in the middle period. Jones turned aside 30 of 31 shots at even-strength, but he gave up a power play tally to Vladimir Tarasenko late in the second frame. Jones is now riding a three-game winning streak. He's also been victorious in four of his last five outings. The Sharks netminder has a 19-15-5 record with a 2.53 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage.

Couture opened the scoring at the 6:35 mark of the second period. He also registered the primary assist on Joonas Donskoi's go-ahead goal (2-1) later on in the period. The 28-year-old finished the game with a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal in 19:48 of ice time. Couture has racked up seven points in his last seven games. He's up to 24 goals and 46 points in 56 games this season. Mikkel Boedker added the game-winning goal for the Sharks on Tuesday night.

Toronto has traded Eric Fehr to San Jose in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick in 2020.

Fehr could slot in as the Sharks' fourth-line center. He had been playing with the San Diego Gulls of the AHL on loan from the Leafs. Fehr has 17 goals and 28 points in 34 minor-league matches. He also skated in four games with Toronto prior to being demoted.

Tomas Hertl (upper body) is still expected to return during San Jose's road trip.

"I anticipate he’ll play on the trip, I don't know when," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I don't know whether it's next game, the one after that or the final one." Hertl was moved to injured reserve on Monday, so he won't play against St. Louis. He is sidelined with an apparent right-hand injury.
Feb 20 - 4:41 PM

Jones has posted a record of 18-15-5 this season with a 2.54 goals-against average and .915 save percentage.
