The Sharks made some roster moves Sunday, following Saturday’s loss that included trade deadline acquisition Jannik Hansen leaving the game with an apparent injury.
The day after their defeat to the rival Anaheim Ducks, which has made the race for the Pacific Division lead just a little more interesting late in the season, the Sharks recalled forwards Timo Meier and Danny O’Regan, per CSN Bay Area.
As of right now, there hasn’t been any clear update on the status or condition of Hansen, who was hurt midway through the third period. He didn’t return to the game.
Selected ninth overall in 2015, Meier has spent time between the Sharks and their AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda. In 32 games this season in the minors, he has 12 goals and 21 points, while scoring three goals and five points in 26 games with the NHL club.
O’Regan, 23, is putting together a very productive season, 52 points in 54 games, with the Barracuda as a first-year professional.
Hansen was acquired from the beleaguered Vancouver Canucks, and began his tenure with the Sharks by being placed on the top line — reportedly at the recommendation of his former teammates Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
