Sharks' Braun Out For Finale With Illness

News: Justin Braun will miss Saturday's game against the Kings due to an illness, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: With Scott Hannan (face) also unavailable, John Scott will move over from forward to give the Sharks six blueliners. Though he occupied a top-four role on defense for most of the season, Justin Braun's limited offensive abilities resulted in him finishing with one goal and 23 points over 70 games. His fantasy utility remains limited to very deep formats.

Sharks' Braun Struggling To Produce Offense

News: Justin Braun has struggled lately, with no goals and two assists in his last 16 games. He has also been held without a single shot in four of those games.
Analysis: Justin Braun set a career high in points this season, but hasn't been able to get the goals total up, scoring just one goal on December 6. His struggles lately have mirrored those of much of the Sharks defensive group. With the Sharks struggling at large and seemingly resigned to missing the playoffs, don't expect a stark turnaround from Braun in the season's final weeks.

Sharks' Braun Back To Form

News: Justin Braun had an assist, a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, a shot, and 21:26 of ice time in Thursday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Justin Braun produced some solid numbers for owners in his second game back from injury. This is the exact kind of game you want from Braun if you're rostering him. You won't get huge numbers, but there's the possibility of getting a little production across categories.

Sharks' Braun To Make Return Tuesday

News: Justin Braun (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Predators, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: It was believed that Justin Braun wouldn't be back until the Stadium Series match against the Kings over the weekend, but the blueliner will beat that timetable by a few days. After missing the Sharks' previous 11 games, Braun will rejoin Brenden Dillon on the Sharks' second pairing. Matt Tennyson was reassigned to AHL Worcester to make room for Braun's return.

Sharks' Braun Targeting Return For Stadium Series

News: Justin Braun (upper body) is hoping to return to action for the Stadium Series game against the Kings on Feb. 21, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: The left hand injury has sidelined Justin Braun for the last 10 games. He was projected to miss about four-to-six weeks after suffering the injury Jan. 19, and is rapidly approaching the short end of that timetable. However, since he has yet to resume practicing with the rest of the team, it's too early to say if he'll be ready to play by next weekend.

Sharks' Braun Sidelined By Broken Finger

News: Justin Braun (finger) will miss the next four-to-six weeks, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Justin Braun, who suffered a broken finger on his left hand while blocking a shot back on Jan. 19, skated on Tuesday, but he'll need to wait until his finger heals up fully before rejoining the Sharks' lineup.

Sharks Place Braun (Upper Body) On IR

News: Justin Braun (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Analysis: Justin Braun sustained an upper-body injury in Monday's loss to the Devils and is set to be "out a while." Mirco Mueller (wrist) was activated from IR in a corresponding move.

Sharks' Braun Sidelined

News: Coach Todd McLellan indicated that Justin Braun will be out "a while" with an unspecified upper body injury.
Analysis: Per the San Jose Mercury News, Justin Braun left Monday's game against New Jersey after blocking a shot and it sounds like the blueliner -- who has notched 19 points in 47 games -- will probably miss time beyond Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Justin Braun

Sharks' Braun Has Back-To-Back Productive Games

News: Justin Braun registered two assists for the second straight game in Saturday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: With five points in his last three games, Justin Braun now has 19 points (one goal) in 46 games on the season, to go with a plus-5 rating. Averaging 21:03 of ice time and contributing 34 PIM, the 27-year-old has been a decent fantasy option this season. On track for 35 points, Braun is worth looking at in some very deep leagues.

Rare Multi-Point Effort For Sharks' Braun

News: Justin Braun turned in a pair of assists and blocked six shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over Toronto.
Analysis: It's his first multi-point game in more than a month, dating back to Dec. 6. Justin Braun isn't known for providing much offense, but he does have four helpers in the last five games and a career-high 16 points in 45 games for the season.

Sharks' Braun Sets Career-High Mark

News: Justin Braun had an assist and two shots for the Sharks in a win over the Coyotes on Tuesday.
Analysis: That assist is Justin Braun's 14th of the season, a new career high for the 27-year-old d-man. He still has just one goal on the season, but Braun is an improved player from last season. However, he remains an option best suited to deep fantasy leagues only.

Sharks' Braun Nets First Of Season

News: Justin Braun scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: Not known as a big offensive producer, Justin Braun has managed 10 points in 28 games this season, to go with an impressive plus-8 rating. Averaging 21:20 of ice time per game, Braun logs heavy minutes behind a talented offense in San Jose. Considering he has 30 PIM and is on pace for 30 points, Braun could be worth a look in some deeper formats.

Braun Contributes In Sharks' Win

News: Justin Braun picked up 14 PIM and blocked five shots in Sunday's win over Anaheim.
Analysis: Justin Braun has three assists in 10 games this season, to go with a plus-3 rating. Currently playing on the team's top defensive pairing, Braun logs heavy minutes and sees second-unit power-play time. He isn't a big offensive contributor, though, never surpassing 20 points in his career. He provides more value to the Sharks than he does to fantasy owners.

Braun Adds Point In Sharks Loss

News: Justin Braun had an assist, a plus-1 rating, and a shot in the Sharks loss to the Bruins on Tuesday.
Analysis: Justin Braun has three assists through the season's opening seven games, as well as a plus-3 rating. Braun remains a serviceable fantasy option, but he doesn't stand out in any category.

Sharks Sign Braun To Five-Year Extension

News: Justin Braun, who set career bests with 17 points, four goals, and 13 assists last season, has inked a five-year, $19 million extension with the Sharks, which will begin in the 2015-16 season.
Analysis: Justin Braun's strengths for fantasy lie in his 20:59 of average ice time last year, but his value in other categories is generally limited. Though he occupies a prominent place on the Sharks' penalty kill, the aforementioned career-highs are nothing that will get you drafting him in early rounds. It's a great signing for the Sharks, but strictly from a real-life perspective.

Braun Has First Playoff Goal, Sharks Knocked Out

News: Justin Braun registered a goal — his first career postseason goal through 24 games — and an assist in the seven-game series against the Kings.
Analysis: Justin Braun remains one of those defenseman who has tremendous value for his team, but has a limited upside for fantasy. He tallied four goals and 13 assists through 82 games this season. He scored in streaks and managed a plus-19 rating in the regular season, but we have likely seen what the 27-year-old is capable of. He should stay around these production levels, but a huge increase is unlikely.

Braun Registers Assist In Sharks Loss

News: Justin Braun had an assist in a Game 6 loss to Los Angeles on Monday.
Analysis: Justin Braun played a series-low 18:42 on Monday, but got an assist on the Sharks' only goal of the night. He's recording some good numbers here and there, but his ceiling for fantasy remains limited.

Sharks' Braun Scores First Playoff Goal

News: Justin Braun netted his first career postseason goal, a game-winner, and went plus-3 in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Justin Braun is averaging just over 20 minutes per game and is plus-5 through the opening two contests. Though he's been an asset on the ice, don't expect much offensive production from Braun; he may get some points, but that's not why he's out there for San Jose. Through his first 17 previous postseason games, he had zero goals and one assist.

Braun Ramps Up Physical Play For Sharks

News: Justin Braun had five hits and four blocked shots through 18:09 of ice time in Wednesday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Justin Braun has been inconsistent most of the season, but he can play a good physical game and is never scared to put his body in front of the shot.

Braun Blocks Five In Sharks' Loss

News: Justin Braun laid down in front of five shots in Saturday's OT loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Justin Braun's 126 blocks on the season ranks 29th in the league, but he's not giving you much else. Braun finished Saturday with 19:40 on ice, no points, no shots, no hits, no takeaways... you get the picture. He has value in certain leagues, just make sure that's your league if you're playing him.

Braun Scores, Blocks Shots In Sharks Win

News: Justin Braun had a goal, a plus-1 rating, four shots, three hits, and two blocked shots in Thursday's win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Justin Braun was doing it for owners in every category. This isn't the norm though and don't expect this kind of "across the board" performance from Braun often. Do expect to see those hits and blocked shots keep piling up.

Sharks' Braun Leading Team In Blocked Shots

News: Justin Braun leads the Sharks in blocks with 109 entering the Olympic break.
Analysis: Justin Braun has suited up for all 59 games while averaging 21:25 of ice time, but he's not a standout in any category aside from blocks. That being said, he is at least serviceable by defenseman standards as a scorer (14 points) and carries a plus-16 rating. Fantasy players could do worse in their search for blue line depth.

Braun Blocks Six In Sharks Win

News: Justin Braun took three shots and laid down in front of six in Friday's shootout win over Phoenix.
Analysis: Justin Braun continues to be about what you expected, but has value in particular formats, as he showed with six blocked shots on Friday.

Two Helpers For Sharks' Braun

News: Justin Braun picked up a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over St. Louis.
Analysis: With that, he matched his point total from the prior 11 games combined, as Justin Braun had tallied just a goal and an assist in that span. Tuesday was also his first time since Dec. 3 with a positive plus-minus -- a surprising stat for a guy who racked up a plus-19 in the first two months of the season.

Braun Scores In Sharks' Loss

News: Justin Braun scored in San Jose's 5-3 loss to Carolina on Friday, his second point in the last five games.
Analysis: Justin Braun has a modest nine points through 29 contests on the season, but is averaging close to two minutes of power-play time per game. He's not lighting up the scoresheet, but he's a solid player for the Sharks, albeit one who doesn't score as often as poolies would like.
