Sharks' Desjardins Adds Two Assists

News: Andrew Desjardins and the Sharks' fourth line jump-started a seven-goal run with a pair of goals, both assisted on by Desjardins, in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins came into the series with two goals and no assists through 18 career playoff games. His two helpers are a good start, but don't expect a breakout postseason. Desjardins' role is to be a grinder and create energy for his team. Most nights, that's going to come in the form of being a physical presence rather than creating offense.

Sharks' Desjardins Nets Third Of Year

News: Andrew Desjardins opened the scoring in Tuesday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: That's Andrew Desjardins' third goal of the year and first point in 12 games. You can't count on him for consistent offensive production, which means the only reason to own him in fantasy is his 86 PIM.

SJ's Desjardins Ties Career-High Assist Mark

News: Andrew Desjardins netted his 13th assist of the year — tying his career high— in a meager 6:01 of ice time Thursday against the Penguins.
Analysis: The game was tight and the Sharks didn't have a lead until late in the game. Whether he's on the third of fourth line, his ice time in a tough match tells you a lot about how much trust coach Todd McLellan has in him. When the game is on the line, you'll find Andrew Desjardins on the bench.

Rare Points For Sharks' Desjardins

News: Andrew Desjardins notched two assists in 13:04 of ice time in Thursday's 7-3 roll over Philadelphia.
Analysis: He helped out on both of the returning Raffi Torres' goals, and in doing so collected his first points since back on Jan. 14. Andrew Desjardins' PIM are generally where he finds most of his fantasy value, but he's been an inconsistent contributor even there, with just two penalty minutes in his last 11 games.

Sharks' Desjardins Thrives On Third Line

News: Andrew Desjardins moved up the lineup to center the third line on Thursday and finished the night with two assists and a plus-1 rating.
Analysis: This may be just a blip on the radar. With a healthy forward corps for the first time this season the Sharks are bound to move players around the depth chart a bit. Even if Andrew Desjardins stays on the third and doesn't move back to his normal role centering the fourth line, his offensive upside is limited. His career high is four goals in 76 games back in the 2011-12 campaign.

Desjardins Leading Sharks In PIM

News: Andrew Desjardins leads the Sharks with 72 penalty minutes on the season.
Analysis: The bottom-six forward doesn't offer much intrigue outside of deep leagues, but he offers occasional scoring (11 points in 58 games) to go along with his heavy hit (80) and penalty-minute totals. He should remain a quality role player for the Sharks until his contract expires at the end of next season.

Desjadins Scores Rare Goal For Sharks

News: Andrew Desjardins had a goal, three shots, and two penalty minutes in a victory over Detroit on Thursday.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins has struggled to make an offensive impact for the Sharks this season. Thursday's goal is his first since October 27. Thursday was also the first time he logged at least three shots since December 5, a feat that he's only managed three times this season, while he's logged zero shots 12 times this season.

SJ's Desjardins Throws Shoulder Around

News: Andrew Desjardins had an assist and six hits in a 5-1 win over Edmonton on Thursday.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins continues to be a strong physical presence for the Sharks, even if he's not providing much in the way of points with just a single goal and eight assists on the season.

Desjardins Notches Rare Point For San Jose

News: Andrew Desjardins had an assist and a minus-1 rating in just 7:31 of ice time during Saturday's shootout win over Dallas.
Analysis: As the Sharks played from behind most of the game, Andrew Desjardins' fourth line saw very little ice time, but still snapped an eight-game scoring drought with the helper. It's been a rough stretch for Desjardins owners, with the center only crossing 10 minutes of ice time once in the last four games, taking only a single shot over the last five games, and raking in a minus-4 rating in December. He also has only garnered 12 penalty minutes in December, a category in which owners have to be hoping he can help out a little more.

Desjardins May Be A Scratch For Sharks

News: Andrew Desjardins, based on morning skate Saturday, may be a healthy scratch in Saturday's match against New Jersey, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: Honestly, you probably want to stay away from anyone in the five-person game of musical chairs that is San Jose's fourth line. While the rest of the lineup has stabilized some with the return of Martin Havlat and Brent Burns, it's caused chaos for the fourth line, which is constantly changing.

Sharks' Desjardins Scores First Of Year

News: Andrew Desjardins scored his first goal of the year — a beautiful backhander past Craig Anderson — in Sunday's win over Ottawa.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins has four points in the season's opening 12 games, which puts him way ahead of the three points in 42 games he posted last season. Nonetheless, there's nothing to look at here except in the deepest of leagues.

Desjardins Gets Point As Sharks Dominate Rangers

News: Andrew Desjardins had an assist in the Sharks 9-2 rout of the Rangers Tuesday.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins, while he has next to no value in even the deepest of leagues, had a pretty decent game. On top of his assist he added four shots and had 17:00 on ice.

Desjardins Tallies Point For Sharks In Opener

News: Andrew Desjardins had an assist in Thursday's win over Vancouver. He also added a shot and was plus-1.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins is on pace for 70+ points this season... kidding. Desjardins put up a point, but he was only on the ice for 9:57. With his three points in 42 games last season, he doesn't figure to be a factor in fantasy.

Sharks Re-Sign Dejardins

News: The Sharks have re-signed Andrew Desjardins to a two-year deal, CSN Bay Area reports. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins is one of two RFA signings for the Sharks on Wednesday. He had two goals and one assist in 42 games in 2013.

Desjardins Bags Rare Goal For Sharks

News: Andrew Desjardins scored and collected a five-minute fighting major against the Canucks on Monday.
Analysis: The goal is an anomaly; it's his first of the season. The trade rumors surrounding Ryan Clowe are important for Andrew Desjardins' role: if Clowe leaves, Desjardins is the team's only credible enforcer. In that event, he might be called upon to absorb a few more PIM.

Sharks' Desjardins Activated From IR

News: Andrew Desjardins (illness) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: It appears the Sharks simply placed Andrew Desjardins on injured reserve to free up some roster space while he was feeling ill for a few days, but it seems he's feeling fine now. Desjardins was only a bit contributor prior to his deactivation, recording one point in 10 games.

Sharks Place Desjardins On Injured Reserve

News: Andrew Desjardins (illness) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: It was previously announced that Andrew Desjardins was feeling a little ill of late, but it's possible the sickness is more serious than the Sharks were letting on. With just one point to his credit in ten games, Desjardins wasn't exactly lightly the lamp on a nightly basis, so that might have more to do with his movement off the active roster than any sort of serious illness.

Sharks' Desjardins Will Not Play Monday

News: Andrew Desjardins (illness) will not be in the lineup Monday against the Blue Jackets, the San Jose Mercury News' David Pollak reports.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins skated Monday morning, but is apparently still ailing from the illness that kept him out of Saturday's game against the Coyotes. The Sharks called up winger Matt Pelech to take Desjardins' spot in the lineup for Monday's game.

Sharks' Desjardins Did Not Practice Friday

News: Andrew Desjardins (illness) did not practice Friday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins has the "sniffles" according to coach Todd McLellan, which leads us to believe he should be good to go Saturday against the Coyotes. Unless his condition worsens overnight, expect Desjardins to play Saturday.

Sharks' Desjardins Has Match Penalty Rescinded

News: Andrew Desjardins' match penalty has been rescinded, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Andrew Desjardins was originally given a five minute major and a 10-minute match penalty for his crushing hit on Chicago's Jamal Meyers, but that was rescinded shortly after the game by the NHL's supervisor of officials. Expect Desjardins to be back on the ice in his regular role going forward.

Sharks' Desjardins Skating On Fourth Line

News: Andrew Desjardins was skating on the fourth line at Wednesdays team scrimmage, the San Jose Mercury News' David Pollak reports.
