|SAN JOSE: LAST SEASON: 45-27-10, 100 points. Third place in Pacific Division. |
LOST to Vegas Golden Knights in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Peter DeBoer (fourth season, 11th NHL season).
ADDED: D Erik Karlsson, F Antti Suomela, F Rourke Chartier.
LOST: F Chris Tierney, D Dylan DeMelo, F Mikkel Boedker, F Eric Fehr, F Joel Ward, F Jannik Hansen, D Paul Martin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Karlsson. The Sharks
ADDED the two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman on the eve of training camp in a blockbuster move. Karlsson is an elite playmaker and defenseman and should provide a major boost to San Jose on the power play, as well as five-on-five play.
OUTLOOK: Ever since acquiring Joe Thornton in general manager Doug Wilson's first blockbuster trade back in 2005, the Sharks have viewed themselves as Stanley Cup contenders almost every season. That is clearly the case this year after adding Karlsson to a defensive unit that already featured 2016 Norris winner Brent Burns and shut-down defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic. The Sharks are potentially thin at center and will need a healthy season from Thornton at age 39 after two straight years with major knee injuries in order to challenge for the Cup.
|ST LOUIS: LAST SEASON: 44-32-6, 94 points. Finished fourth in Central Division, one point shy of a playoff spot.
COACH: Mike Yeo (second full season, eighth NHL season).
ADDED: C Ryan O'Reilly, C Tyler Bozak, F David Perron, F Patrick Maroon, G Chad Johnson.
LOST: F Vladimir Sobotka, F Patrik Berglund, F Tage Thompson.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Ryan O'Reilly. St. Louis was active this offseason, highlighted by a blockbuster trade with Buffalo that netted the skilled O'Reilly. The 27-year-old center had 24 goals and 37 assists in his final season with the lowly Sabres. Playing for the refurbished Blues, he could be headed for a big year.
OUTLOOK: Loaded. The addition of O'Reilly, Bozak, Perron and Maroon should create a deep set of lines, and captain Alex Pietrangelo remains one of the NHL's top defensemen. The most pressing concern for St. Louis just might be the health of high-scoring winger Vladimir Tarasenko, who is coming back from April surgery on his left shoulder.
|Schenn likely out again as Blues host Sharks|
ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues seem to finally be gaining some positive momentum this season, but they may be without one of their biggest offensive pieces as they host the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.
Center Brayden Schenn (upper-body injury) seems likely to miss his second straight game. Schenn, who left Saturday's contest against the Minnesota Wild, did some light work in practice Thursday but was nowhere near full go.
"A little bit (of work), but obviously he wasn't involved in everything, so again, question mark for tomorrow," Blues coach Mike Yeo told NHL.com.
Forward Pat Maroon will be a healthy scratch for the first time this season.
Maroon, a St. Louis native, signed a one-year $1.75 million free agent contract with the Blues in the offseason. He has seven assists in the first 13 games, but is struggling to score.
"I think it's been very frustrating for him, which is understandable," Yeo told NHL.com. "First off, you know how important it is for him to put that jersey on, what that means to him and how he wants to contribute. Secondly, he's betting on himself this year. We know how important that is. It's tough. We've seen a lot of good things despite him not scoring, his forechecking, his puck presence in the offensive zone, his physicality, his power-play (contributions), all these things.
"I think some things can start to get in your head and obviously confidence starts to play a part in that. I think maybe a little reset here can help him out."
Forward Nikita Soshkinov will replace Maroon in the lineup and will make his Blues debut. He will a line with Tyler Bozak and Alexander Steen.
Soshkinov and Bozak were teammates in Toronto.
"He's been working hard and this will be a good chance for him," Yeo told NHL.com. "He's playing with a guy in Bozie that he's familiar with, two guys that are responsible. I don't expect perfection without the puck for Sosh; that's not what I'm looking for. What I'm looking for is his speed to be a difference maker. He's got two smart players who can read off of him. For me, the way I should see it is his speed should impact the game all over the ice. Hopefully we can see that tomorrow."
The Blues won once in three meetings against the Sharks last season.
San Jose will be playing its second game in as many days after losing 4-3 at Dallas on Thursday night. The Sharks had their two-game winning streak snapped.
Defenseman Brent Burns recorded two assists, including career No. 400, and forward Evander Kane tied the game 3-3 in the third period for the Sharks before center Devin Shore got the game-winner, his second goal of the night, at 14:13 of the third for the Stars.
Sharks defenseman Joe Thornton played in his 1,500 career game. He is the 19th player in league history to reach that milestone.
"He does things that people don't even know or see to be able to play," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson told the San Jose Mercury News about Thornton. "If he ever shared his actual routine with everybody, people would not believe it. But you don't put that much work in if you don't truly, truly don't love it. This is a really special person."
