Alexander Barabanov News
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.
San Jose Sharks winger Alexander Barabanov (upper body) is ready to return to the lineup on Saturday against Chicago. Based on the morning skate, the 27-year-old makes his comeback from a four-game absence in a very sweet spot, skating on the top line with the team's top scorers Tomas Hertl and Timo Meier. Barabanov is finishing off his debut campaign in the NHL and has notched 10 goals and 37 points in 65 games. He's gone six games without a point and doesn't look like a very attractive fantasy piece, but the company of Hertl and Meier will boost Barabanov's stock quite a bit.
San Jose Sharks forwards Alexander Barabanov and Nick Bonino are both battling an illness and are considered questionable for Saturday's matchup against Nashville. Head coach Bob Boughner faces a selection headache if neither player is ready to go. However, there is at least some good news for San Jose as well, with Rudolfs Balcers (upper body) likely returning to the lineup. He's missed the past four games and based on practice lines, the Latvian might make his return on the top line, which will give his fantasy value a very big boost.
