Game 4 takeaways: Erik Karlsson ’ s health among a few concerns. Karlsson returned late the third after the Sharks had pulled Martin Jones, attempting to tie the game with Karlsson came back with just under two minutes left, a good sign for the Sharks that he was able to gut it out for one final push.

The Sharks later confirmed Karlsson ' s status and said he will have surgery to repair his thumb in the coming days. Captain Logan Couture also has been out an extended stretch with a fractured left ankle. The playoffs are a pipe dream for the Sharks in a season that cost coach Peter DeBoer his job

Despite the devastating news that star defenseman Erik Karlsson will miss the rest of the season Saturday with a broken thumb, there may be a silver lining when looking at the injury.

One small consolation is that by placing Karlsson on long-term injured reserve, it will free up $11.5M in salary, which could give the team some more flexibility in taking on salary at the trade deadline, according to The Athletic’s Kevin Kurz (subscription required). The team currently has just $5.7M of cap space it could use at the trade deadline, meaning it would be unable to take back any team’s salary which could increase their return in trades. Now with that $11.5M available to use, San Jose may be able to benefit even more at the trade deadline.

Giordano week-to-week with hamstring injury

  Giordano week-to-week with hamstring injury Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano is considered week-to-week with a hamstring injury, general manager Brad Treliving said Thursday, according to Sportsnet's Eric Francis. Giordano, 36, won't require surgery and there is no official timeline for his return. "This is not as long-term as we initially feared," Treliving said, according to the Calgary Sun's Kristen Anderson. The Flames captain exited with the injury during the second period of Tuesday's contest against the San Jose Sharks after falling awkwardly while shooting. Giordano is the defensive backbone of a Flames team battling for a playoff berth in a tight Western Conference.

Erik Karlsson and the San Jose Sharks have been fortunate dealing with the injury bug throughout their 2018-2019 campaign. It’ s no question Karlsson is a vital piece to the San Jose Sharks core this season after acquiring the two-time Norris Trophy winner in the summer blockbuster trade.

A silver lining is a metaphor for optimism in the common English-language which means a negative occurrence may have a positive aspect to it. The origin of the phrase is most likely traced to John Milton' s "Comus" (1634) with the lines, idiom. Every cloud has a silver lining .

Another concern initially came when Karlsson fell awkwardly over Joe Thornton as many believed he had re-injured his surgically repaired groin injury, which he dealt with for much of last season. The 29-year-old hasn’t been the same since undergoing offseason surgery and hasn’t been nearly as mobile this year. Kurz added in a separate tweet that Karlsson will have his thumb surgery Monday in Los Angeles, by Dr. Steven Shin, who operated on NBA’s Stephen Curry and the NFL’s Drew Brees.

  • With the “For Sale” sign up and visible, there are many teams who have inquired about Sharks forward Barclay Goodrow, who is having a career season with eight goals, 24 points and 80 penalty minutes. The 26-year-old is very attractive to capped-out teams as he carries just a $925K salary and has one more year on his current contract before he hits unrestricted free agency in 2021. However, the Mercury News’ Curtis Pashelka writes that there has been no indication from the Sharks that they would be willing to move Goodrow, who has become a very versatile piece on the team, who can play any position, play on the penalty kill, and has received a signficant upgrade in minutes since Tomas Hertl went down with a season-ending injury. The team fully expects him to be a part of their future.
  • Longtime Shark Thornton has also been in trade rumors recently, but has a no-movement clause, which means that if Thornton is traded, it will be at his request. However, rumors still suggest that he might be a good fit with the Boston Bruins, for a reunion with the team that originally drafted him and which he played for eight seasons before signing with the Sharks. Another recent team to come up in rumors is the Colorado Avalanche, where he might be a perfect addition, according to ColoradoHockeyNow’s Adrian Dater. Thornton would serve as a good short-term replacement for Nazem Kadri, who is out weeks with a lower-body injury. He also might be a better candidate to play in a bottom-six role over Tyson Jost, who has struggled mightily recently, going 30 straight games without a goal.
  • Kurz also notes that the Sharks could be interested in forward Jayce Hawryluk, who was put on waivers today. Hawryluk is well known by head coach Bob Boughner, who coached him in Florida last season. With the team looking for depth on their bottom-six, Hawryluk would make sense.

San Jose Sharks' Tomas Hertl out for the season with knee injury

  San Jose Sharks' Tomas Hertl out for the season with knee injury The 26-year-old forward left the game against Vancouver on Jan. 29 in the first period.All-Star forward Tomas Hertl will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee. Hertl sustained the injury on Jan. 29 in a 5-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks, during which the 26-year-old played only one minute and 10 seconds before being forced out.

Part of that is because Democrats allocate delegates proportionally, and despite those big wins Saturday, his campaign had suffered major setbacks over the past two weeks. Sanders needs a big win here. Madison is a hub of liberalism and home to the University of Wisconsin.

Karlsson ’ s most-common teammates except one all produced better results when skating alongside the Sharks prospect. Here, Karlsson notices his team has collected the puck safely in its own zone, so he heads up ice looking for the stretch pass.

Capitals acquire defenseman Brenden Dillon from Sharks .
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — The Washington Capitals bolstered their blue line Tuesday by acquiring veteran defenseman Brenden Dillon from the San Jose Sharks. Washington sent Colorado's 2020 second-round pick and a conditional 2021 third-rounder to San Jose for the pending unrestricted free agent. The Sharks are keeping half of Dillon's salary and cap hit to facilitate the move. “Brenden is an experienced defenseman who plays a solid defensive game with a high compete level and physicality,” Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said. “We felt it was important for us to add a player of his caliber to our defensive group.
