Sharks call up Mueller; Martin not practicing yet

1 Comment

The San Jose Sharks have recalled defenseman Mirco Mueller and forward Micheal Haley from their AHL club, while sending down d-man Dylan DeMelo and forwards Nikolay Goldobin and Bryan Lerg.

Meanwhile, per CSN Bay Area, veteran defenseman Paul Martin and center Ben Smith did not practice on Wednesday and their availability for tomorrow’s game against the Kings appears to be in doubt.

If Martin needs more time to recover from his lower-body injury (and that sounds likely), expect Mueller to be in the lineup tomorrow versus the Kings, likely paired with Matt Tennyson.

DeMelo, a 22-year-old rookie, took Martin’s spot Saturday and Monday in losses to the Islanders and Rangers, respectively.
