Sharks' Kennedy: Assists In First Two Games Back

News: Tyler Kennedy assisted on John Scott's goal in the Sharks' 3-1 loss to the Flames on Wednesday.
Analysis: After missing three straight games to conclude January due to injury, Tyler Kennedy has returned to provide an assist in each of his two February contests. While Kennedy's four goals and nine points in 20 games this season are serviceable by bottom-six forward standards, that level of production won't be helpful to many fantasy owners.

Kennedy Expected To Return For Sharks

News: Tyler Kennedy looks like he'll draw back into the lineup for Monday's game against the Oilers, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy missed time again with his fourth injury of the season. This time he only missed three games, but it's been a tough season for Kennedy, who hasn't performed well when he has been in the lineup.

Sharks' Kennedy Gets In A Skate Saturday

News: Tyler Kennedy (lower body) was able to take part in Saturday's morning skate, but won't be a lineup option for the Sharks' tilt with the Blackhawks, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy is reportedly dealing with muscle spasms in the lower-body injury, the fourth unique ailment he's had to deal with this season. The winger declined to put an estimate on a potential return date, but if he continues to practice without much pain over the next couple of days, he could be ready to go for Monday's match against Edmonton.

Sharks' Kennedy Dealing With Lower-Body Injury

News: Tyler Kennedy is dealing with a lower-body injury, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: As a result, Tyler Kennedy won't play Thursday against the Ducks, with his status beyond that contest not yet clarified.

Sharks' Kennedy Misses Wednesday Morning's Skate

News: Tyler Kennedy (unspecified issue) was not at Wednesday's morning skate, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy -- who has seven points in 18 games to date -- skated Tuesday, so it's unclear if his absence Wednesday is injury or maintenance-related.

Kennedy Returns To Sharks Lineup

News: Tyler Kennedy played for the first time since December 6 on Tuesday, registering one shot and a plus-1 rating in a win over Arizona.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy's season, an important one for his career after a couple of down years, has been derailed by injuries. Two extended injuries have kept him out of all but 14 games just past the season's mid-point. He has three goals and two assist in those 14 games.

Sharks' Kennedy To Play Tuesday

Sharks' Kennedy Improving, Closing In On Return

News: Tyler Kennedy has been getting more and more involved at practice and coach Todd McLellan says Kennedy could begin to push himself into physical battles in the next week to ten days, according to CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: That's great news for the Sharks, who will benefit from the depth he provides, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. Tyler Kennedy has spent most of the season hampered by injuries and has yet to prove that last season's poor showing was an aberration and not what we should expect from him going forward.

Sharks' Kennedy (Shoulder) Gets In On-Ice Workout

News: Tyler Kennedy (left shoulder) took part in Friday's optional practice, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy doesn't appear particularly close to a return, as the optional session didn't contain much contact. He'll likely continue to skate on his own or participate in light practice for the next several days.

Sharks' Kennedy: (Shoulder) Out 'Awhile'

News: Coach Todd McLellan said Tyler Kennedy would be out "awhile" after suffering a shoulder injury Saturday in Calgary, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: McLellan was uncertain if Tyler Kennedy would require surgery, but it's clear a long-term absence is in store after he was forced to leave the arena Saturday in an arm sling. The timing of the injury is troubling for the 28-year-old, who had submitted perhaps the best game of his career with San Jose in his return from injured reserve last Thursday versus the Bruins, scoring two goals on four shot attempts.

Sharks' Kennedy Lands On Injured Reserve

News: Tyler Kennedy is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: The extent of Tyler Kennedy's injury is uncertain, but he was placed on injured reserve Monday, so he will be out a week, and potentially longer. The Sharks have yet to announce who will be recalled to take Kennedy's place on the roster.

Sharks' Kennedy Out Again

News: Tyler Kennedy was seen leaving the arena after Saturday's game in Calgary with his arm in a sling and won't suit up Sunday against Edmonton, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy played just 1:38 on Saturday before leaving the game. No official word on what the injury is and whether he'll play, but Pollak believes Kennedy will be out Sunday for sure. Kennedy has had a rough season so far, missing time with multiple injuries. He's only been back on the roster for two games since his last, unrelated lower body injury.

Sharks' Kennedy Shines In Return

News: Tyler Kennedy (lower body) bagged two goals on four shot attempts in his return to the ice Thursday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy had missed the previous two games with the injury, but helped the Sharks finish off the Bruins in the final period. His second goal of the night held up as the game-winner and gave the winger five points in 12 games on the season.

Sharks Activate Kennedy

News: Tyler Kennedy (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Thursday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd McLellan said Tyler Kennedy would be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Bruins, but where he plays won't be known until the Sharks have a better feel for the status of Logan Couture (head), who is questionable to play. Kennedy missed two games with the lower-body ailment but was able to return to full practice Monday.

Sharks' Kennedy Practices Monday

News: Tyler Kennedy (lower body) looked to be a full participant in practice Monday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: This would indicate that the injury that landed Tyler Kennedy on IR over the weekend isn't overly serious, and while he won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Flyers, he could be an option for Thursday's tilt with the Bruins. The Sharks already have 23 players on their active roster and would need to clear a spot for Kennedy once he's ready to return.

Sharks Place Kennedy On Injured Reserve

News: Tyler Kennedy was placed on injured reserve Saturday with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: It's not clear at this time what landed Tyler Kennedy on injured reserve, but he will be out at least the next week.

First Goal For Sharks' Kennedy Is Winner Thursday

News: Tyler Kennedy scored his first goal of the season Thursday against the Lightning, and it turned out to be the game-winner in a 2-1 decision.
Analysis: It's just his second point in five games since returning from the upper-body issue that kept him out to start the year. Although he has a 20-goal season on his resume, Tyler Kennedy represents a low-upside fantasy option at this point in his career, especially while seeing fourth-line minutes for the Sharks.

SJ's Kennedy Contributing Since Return

News: In Tyler Kennedy's second game back from injury he was held without a point or shot in Saturday's win over Dallas., However, he did register a plus-2 rating and four penalty minutes in just 9:33 of play.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy had an assist in his season debut on Thursday, but had his ice time limited in a tighter game Saturday. It's clear that Kennedy still has to prove himself to Sharks brass after last season's middling performance.

Sharks Activate Kennedy

News: Tyler Kennedy (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve.
Analysis: With the upper-body injury no longer a concern, Tyler Kennedy will make his season debut Thursday against the Canucks. The winger, who tallied 17 points across 67 games last season, is expected to slot in on the Sharks' third line with James Sheppard and Tomas Hertl.

Kennedy To Make Season Debut For Sharks

News: The Sharks have sent Chris Tierney to the AHL, paving the way for Tyler Kennedy's return on Thursday, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy had more than his share of struggles last season and was scratched regularly. He's looking to get his career back on track and rekindle the offensive spark he had in Pittsburgh a few years back.

Sharks Recall Kennedy From Conditioning Assignment

News: The Sharks recalled Tyler Kennedy (upper body) from AHL Worcester on Monday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy played in three games with AHL Worcester as part of a conditioning assignment, and racked up two goals and an assist over that time. His play was enough to prove to the team that he's healthy, and could make his season debut Thursday against the Canucks.

Sharks Assign Kennedy For Conditioning

News: The Sharks reassigned Tyler Kennedy (upper body) to AHL Worcester on a conditioning assignment, David Pollak of the Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy has been on IR the entire season so far with the upper body injury, but should be decently close to returning considering he's heading to Worcester for a conditioning assignment.

Sharks' Kennedy (Upper Body) Won't Return Saturday

News: Tyler Kennedy (upper body) will not return from injured reserve for Saturday's game with the Sabres, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: There was some optimism Tyler Kennedy might be back in action Saturday after he took part in line rushes during Friday's practice, but the team decided he could use a little more recovery time. The Sharks could choose to activate him for Sunday's game against the Ducks or at some point later in the upcoming week.

Sharks' Kennedy Close To Return

News: Tyler Kennedy (upper body) could be activated from injured reserve in advance of Saturday's game against the Sabres, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy, who has been out since the early part of training camp with the injury, skated on the fourth line at Friday's practice, a sign he could nearly be ready to go. The forward said after practice that he's been skating for a while and feels his conditioning is up to par, but it will ultimately be coach Todd McLellan's call on whether or not Kennedy reenters the lineup Saturday.

Sharks Place Kennedy On IR

News: Tyler Kennedy (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Kennedy suffered the injury early last week during practice and hasn't progressed to the point of being ready for Wednesday's season opener against the Kings. He'll be eligible to return from IR as soon as he's healthy, but the Sharks haven't provided any indication on when that might occur. His placement on IR, along with James Sheppard's, seems to have paved the way for the likes of bottom-six wingers Adam Burish, John Scott and Eriah Hayes to make the Sharks' Opening Night roster.
