Mikael Granlund News
San Jose Sharks forward Mikael Granlund (lower body) has joined the team for its current five-game road trip. He was injured in San Jose's season opener on Oct. 12, and Sharks head coach David Quinn labeled Granlund as week-to-week. It's still unclear when the Finnish forward will be able to return to action, but the fact that he is among the traveling party is a good sign. With center Logan Couture (lower body) also on the shelf, things have obviously been very difficult for the Sharks. Quinn's team is winless through the first five games, with only one point on the board and seven goals scored.
San Jose Sharks forward Mikael Granlund (lower body) was placed on Injured Reserve Friday. He reaggravated a lower-body injury in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Vegas. The 31-year-old will now be forced to miss at least three games, starting with Saturday's matchup against the Avalanche. This is a big setback personally for Granlund, who's hoping to reignite his career in San Jose, and it's also bad news for the team, as the Sharks have opened the campaign without Logan Couture (lower body), and the center position is now already down to bare bones with only one game played.
San Jose Sharks forward Mikael Granlund (shoulder) took a step forward by skating for half an hour Thursday, as per head coach David Quinn. The veteran has been limited in camp due to his shoulder ailment but was able to get a mild skate in Thursday with his club's Oct. 12 season opener versus the Vegas Golden Knights still more than two weeks away. The 31-year-old was part of the return from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Erik Karlsson trade this offseason after posting just one goal and five points across 21 games with Pittsburgh following a trade-deadline deal from the Nashville Predators last season. The 11-year NHL veteran has posted 145 goals and 484 points across 750 career regular-season contests.
The San Jose Sharks have acquired forward Mikael Granlund in a three-team trade with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens. Granlund spent only half a season in Pittsburgh after getting picked up from Nashville for a second-round draft pick. He scored once in 21 games and had five points in total, so his spell in the Steel City was a forgettable one. Granlund will hope to bounce back in San Jose, where he should have a bigger role to play. The Finnish forward is only a season removed from a 64-point campaign, and he has been a fairly productive player throughout his NHL career, registering 145 goals and 484 points in 750 regular-season appearances. The Sharks also added another forward Mike Hoffman with the trade, as well as defenseman Jan Rutta, along with a 2024 first-round draft pick from the Penguins.
