Sharks' Karlsson, Hertl won't play in Game 6

Sharks' Karlsson, Hertl won't play in Game 6 The San Jose Sharks will be shorthanded for Game 6 against the St. Louis Blues. All-Star defenseman Erik Karlsson and forward Tomas Hertl won't play in Tuesday's do-or-die clash, head coach Peter DeBoer told The Athletic's Kevin Kurz. DeBoer added that Sharks captain Joe Pavelski will be a game-time decision. Karlsson, Hertl, and Pavelski all left Game 5 with various ailments and did not return. Karlsson's been dealing with a nagging groin injury that cost him 29 games during the regular season. Despite the ailment, he's tied for second on the Sharks with 16 points during this playoff run.

When the end of the San Jose Sharks' season arrived, the biggest question immediately became, "What would happen to Erik Karlsson?" The star defenseman is a free agent this summer, but was limited by injury at the end of the year and comes with plenty of question marks, including the draft pick compensation San Jose would need to send Ottawa if he re-signed. Karlsson tweeted out a cryptic thank you to the San Jose area, and immediately many started speculating that it would be the end of his time there. Speculation erupted, with landing spots like New York and Tampa Bay seeming the most likely.

DeBoer: Karlsson was healthy, dialed in 'for probably 6 weeks'

DeBoer: Karlsson was healthy, dialed in 'for probably 6 weeks' Peter DeBoer lamented the fact that Erik Karlsson wasn't at 100 percent during the playoffs, and the San Jose Sharks head coach said the superstar blue-liner wasn't fully healthy and thus at his best for much of the season. "Sure (it's) disappointing, absolutely. Maybe the best defenseman in the world or in that conversation. But really, we had him healthy for probably six weeks and dialed in," DeBoer told the assembled media, including Sportsnet, following his team's elimination Tuesday night. "The first two months of the season, he was getting used to us, (maybe) two-and-a-half (months)," the Sharks bench boss added.

Mr Biden, who served as vice-president under Barack Obama, is leading current polls by a considerable margin with Massachusetts Senator Ms Warren and Vermont Senator Mr Sanders in second and third. The rest of the field are polling in single figures.

Now in a new column, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun suggests the unthinkable: a return to the Senators. Brennan reports that a source tells him Karlsson “hopes to receive competitive offers” from the Senators and Montreal Canadiens, in order to get closer to his wife Melinda’s family, who are in Ottawa. That would certainly be a shocking development, given how Karlsson exited the Senators organization last summer and the way they have failed to sign any top talent over the years.

  • Rumors have surfaced lately that Taylor Hall isn’t interested in signing an extension with the New Jersey Devils, but his agent Darren Ferris threw some cold water on that when speaking with Mike Morreale of NHL.com. Ferris called the report “fictitious” while Devils GM Ray Shero also doesn’t know where it came from, given his recent conversations with the Hall camp. Still, both admit that there is no rush to sign a deal despite their regular communication and that Hall won’t feel pressure when he is eligible for a deal on July 1.
  • A report out of Finland from Sasha Huttunen has the Columbus Blue Jackets signing Veini Vehvilainen in the coming days, though obviously nothing is official just yet. Vehvilainen is a 22-year-old goaltending prospect that the Blue Jackets drafted last year with a sixth-round pick, who dominated Finland’s Liiga for the second straight season. The report notes that the young goaltender could return to Finland to continue his development on a loan from the Blue Jackets, which makes sense given the number of netminders already under contract with the team in the minor leagues.
