Alexander Barabanov News
San Jose Sharks winger Alexander Barabanov would like to stay in San Jose but does not want to think about his next contract. The 29-year-old began his NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2020-21 season but was moved to the Sharks where his career took off. Barabanov notched seven points in nine games with the Sharks that season before tallying 25 goals and 86 points across 138 games with the Sharks over the last two campaigns. While he will see top-six minutes again this season after averaging a hearty 18:03 of ice time per game last season, the pending free agent was a minus-30 with just 120 shots on goal last season and will be part of a paper-thin Sharks offense, leaving him well off of the fantasy radar.
San Jose Sharks winger Alexander Barabanov is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury and won't play Tuesday against Winnipeg. The 28-year-old will miss his sixth game of the season. Barabanov carries an ugly minus-30 rating, but he's done pretty well this season, notching 15 goals and 47 points in 68 games. Jeffrey Viel is taking his spot in the lineup Tuesday. Barabanov's first chance to return comes Thursday versus Vegas.
San Jose Sharks winger Alexander Barabanov (undisclosed) is a game-time decision for Thursday's tilt against Philadelphia. He is dealing with an unspecified ailment and could miss his sixth game of the season. Barabanov is the fifth-highest scorer on the team with 21 points posted in 31 games, and he's ranked behind only Erik Karlsson and Tomas Hertl with 17 assists. He has skated with Timo Meier and Logan Couture, but Noah Gregor was in his spot when Barabanov missed Wednesday's practice. The Russian took a maintenance day and said Thursday morning that he's feeling good for the game, but head coach David Quinn hasn't yet made the final decision on his lineup selection.
San Jose Sharks winger Alexander Barabanov (lower body) hasn't traveled with the team to Europe, which strongly indicates that he won't be playing in next week's Global Series games against Nashville. The two teams officially kick off the new NHL season with a pair of matches in the Czech Republic, meaning Barabanov is set to miss at least the first two games of the season. However, he is considered day-to-day, so the 28-year-old shouldn't be missing for long. Barabanov posted 39 points in 70 games in his first proper NHL season last year, earning himself a two-year extension. The Russian winger is set to be a top-six forward for San Jose in 2022-23 and fantasy managers in deeper leagues should keep an eye on him.
