Sharks send three to AHL; still waiting on Torres suspension
The San Jose Sharks have assigned forwards Nikolay Goldobin and Melker Karlsson and defenseman Mirco Mueller to AHL San Jose.
Goldobin and Mueller are both first-round picks -- the former in 2014, the latter in 2013.
Goldobin had one goal and two assists in five preseason games. It’s possible he could be called back up when the NHL suspends Raffi Torres.
Torres remains part of the 23-man roster (see below) but is facing a lengthy ban for his hit on Anaheim’s Jakob Silfverberg. Torres has a hearing today.
Rookie defenseman Dylan DeMelo is also on the roster. The 22-year-old had one goal and two assists in four preseason games.
