Sharks Ink McCarthy To Two-Way Deal

News: John McCarthy signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Sharks on Thursday, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: After opening the past season with AHL Chicago in the St. Louis organization, John McCarthy finished up the campaign at AHL Worcester, where he had played the previous five years. He'll stick around with the organization that drafted him, but his middling production in the minor-league ranks likely won't put him on the cusp of a promotion.

Blues Reassign McCarthy

News: John McCarthy was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Friday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: John McCarthy was recalled from the minors just two days earlier to serve as an extra forward, but ended up being dropped from the 23-man roster after the Blues activated Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) from injured reserve Friday. The winger is strictly an organizational depth option for the Blues, as he'll likely only be called up to the parent club on a temporary basis when injuries occur.

Blues Recall McCarthy From AHL Chicago

News: John McCarthy was recalled from AHL Chicago on Wednesday.
Analysis: John McCarthy, who has recorded seven points over 22 games in the minors this season, will provide the Blues with offensive depth. Forward Colin Fraser was also recalled for a similar purpose.

John McCarthy

Blues Cut McCarthy

News: John McCarthy was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Sunday, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: John McCarthy, who appeared in 36 games for the Sharks last season, doesn't figure to see anywhere close to that amount of run with the Blues this season, should he eventually warrant an appointment to the NHL club. He'll likely remain at Chicago for the majority of the campaign, serving as little more than organizational forward depth.

Blues Sign McCarthy To One-Year Deal

News: John McCarthy signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Blues on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: The deal will pay John McCarthy $600,000 at the NHL level, where he's not likely to see much duty for the forward-rich Blues. McCarthy appeared in 36 games last season for the Sharks, notching a goal and an assist while finishing with a minus-11 rating.

John McCarthy

Sharks Send McCarthy to AHL Worcester On Saturday

News: John McCarthy was sent down to AHL Worcester on Saturday.
Analysis: John McCarthy netted his first goal of the season Friday, but heads to Worcester so that he can see regular ice time over the Olympic break. He will likely be recalled when play resumes.

John McCarthy

McCarthy Nets First Of The Year For Sharks

News: John McCarthy tipped in a shot from linemate James Sheppard for his first goal of the season Friday against Columbus.
Analysis: John McCarthy, freshly recalled from AHL Worcester, also had five shots and played 15:44, his fourth highest total ice time of the season. McCarthy played strong Friday, but the reality is that he will be up and down from the AHL for the rest of the season, especially with at least three forwards returning from injury after the break.

John McCarthy

Sharks Recall McCarthy

News: John McCarthy was recalled from AHL Worcester on Thursday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: John McCarthy will be filling in for Matt Nieto (undisclosed), who will be out Friday after taking a shot off his foot in Wednesday's game. With just one point in his 35 games with the Sharks earlier this season, McCarthy shouldn't be expected to make much of a fantasy impact.

Sharks' McCarthy Clears Waivers

News: John McCarthy cleared waivers Saturday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: John McCarthy will now report to AHL Worcester after going unclaimed. He had just one point and four penalty minutes over 35 games with the Sharks.

John McCarthy, LW, SJ

John McCarthy

Sharks Place McCarthy On Waivers

News: John McCarthy was placed on waivers Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Several Sharks forwards are currently sidelined with injuries, but a couple of them are close to returning, so the team decided to open up a roster spot by placing John McCarthy on waivers. McCarthy has appeared in 35 games this season, so assuming he clears waivers, he will likely be among the top options should the Sharks need to bring up another forward down the road.

Sharks' McCarthy Registers First Point Of Season

News: John McCarthy had an assist in Thursday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: After 22 games John McCarthy finally gets on the board for the Sharks. He's got a great opportunity to carve out a permanent spot in San Jose with all the injuries the team is dealing with. However, with a minus-8 rating and no goals, it seems likely that he will get bumped as the team gets healthy.

John McCarthy

McCarthy Still Pointless For Sharks

News: John McCarthy is still without a point through 21 games this season.
Analysis: John McCarthy has seen a good number of games this season and is currently centering the third line with some regularity lately. Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to translate that opportunity into offensive production. Through 21 games he's a minus-8 with no points and 34 shots.

John McCarthy

McCarthy May Suit Up For The Sharks

News: John McCarthy spent morning skate Saturday practicing on the fourth line, a sign that he'll be suiting up against the Devils on Saturday, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: John McCarthy, who was a healthy scratch last game, has no points in the first 13 games of the season. He only played 10 games last season and didn't have any points in that campaign either. Ideally, you're looking elsewhere for your roster.

Sharks' McCarthy To See Third Line Minutes

News: John McCarthy will be skating on Joe Pavelski's third line with Tyler Kennedy in Sunday's match against Chicago, according to CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: John McCarthy will be taking over the wing slot left open by Matt Nieto's demotion to the fourth line.

Sharks Recall McCarthy

News: John McCarthy was recalled from AHL Worcester on Monday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

Sharks Reassign McCarthy

News: John McCarthy has been reassigned to AHL Worcester, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: John McCarthy's absence from the Sharks roster should not affect your fantasy team.

John McCarthy

Sharks Recall McCarthy

News: John McCarthy was called up from AHL Worcester on Friday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: He was called up to take Matt Pelech's spot on the active roster. John McCarthy isn't expected to see anything more than light playing time on the fourth line and should be a healthy scratch once Adam Burish returns to action in the coming days.

9/30/2013

John McCarthy, LW, SJ

John McCarthy

McCarthy Cut From Sharks Roster

News: John McCarthy was reassigned to AHL Worcester on Monday.
Analysis: John McCarthy, a four-year vet of 51 games, was among the final group of cuts despite some modest production in the preseason. Though he's an interesting prospect, McCarthy has been surpassed on the Sharks' depth chart by younger players.

John McCarthy

McCarthy Scores In Sharks' Preseason Opener

News: John McCarthy tallied a goal in San Jose's 3-2 preseason win over Vancouver on Monday.
Analysis: John McCarthy has played 51 games in San Jose over his first four years, but remains unlikely to suit up for opening-day action. He has been surpassed on the depth chart by a number of young players, including Tomas Hertl.

John McCarthy

Sharjks Re-Sign McCarthy

News: John McCarthy signed a two-year deal with the Sharks, the Team's Official Website reports.
Analysis: It's probably safe to assume that it is a two-way deal, although details are not available yet. John McCarthy only has four points over 51 career games at the NHL level, but did net 20 goals in the AHL last year.

John McCarthy

Sharks' McCarthy Reassigned

News: John McCarthy has been reassigned to AHL Worcester, CSN's Brodie Brazil reports.
Analysis: John McCarthy was -2 in three games for the Sharks since being called up. He'd been having a solid season at Worcester before being called up with 27 points in 37 games and could be called up again later in the season with an injury to a forward on the Sharks roster.

1/21/2012

John McCarthy, LW, SJ

John McCarthy

Sharks Recall McCarthy

News: The Sharks recalled John McCarthy from AHL Worcester on Saturday, according to the team's official website.
Analysis: John McCarthy picked up 27 points (11G, 16A) in 37 games with Worcester this season. However, he totaled just four points in the same amount of games with the Sharks last season, so don't expect him to maintain that scoring rate at the top level.

Sharks Assign McCarthy To AHL

News: The Sharks have sent John McCarthy to AHL Worcester, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
