Sharks To Make Nieto A Healthy Scratch Again
It looks as though Nieto will be made a healthy scratch for the second straight game, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.This isn't 100% confirmed yet, but based on morning skate it looks like he'll be out. With the return of Martin Havlat and Brent Burns it appears that Nieto has to produce or risk being scratched. If you're holding onto him based on early season production, it may be a good time to browse through waivers for someone who is producing...or even just playing.
Sharks' Make Nieto A Healthy Scratch
Nieto was a healthy scratch in the Sharks' game Thursday.Nieto, at just 21-years old, showed a lot of promise, but has disappeared from the scoresheet lately. He hasn't scored in 12 games, has been dropping down the depth chart, and with his scratch on Thursday, owners have to be a little concerned. You can probably get what Nieto offers you from a player with less risk off waivers.
Sharks May Scratch Nieto
While nothing is confirmed, based on morning skate it looks as though the Sharks may leave Nieto as a healthy scratch if Brent Burns does in fact return Thursday, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area and others.Nieto started the season strong, but has struggled of late. His ice time is decreasing, he's been relegated to the fourth line regularly since the return of Martin Havlat, and he's been held without a goal in the last 12 contests.
SJ's Nieto Moving To Fourth Line
Nieto, who appeared to be emerging as a serious offensive threat for a bit, has been demoted to San Jose's fourth line for Sunday's game against Chicago.Nieto has not delivered on the promises of his play early in the season. Nieto has gone six games without a point and 11 games without a goal. He was a trendy pick up off waivers for a bit, but with his lack of production and moving down to fourth line minutes, it's going to be hard to trust him going forward.
