The Sharks are having to make another injury adjustment to their lineup as Rob Blake will miss the Detroit contest with an upper body injury and Derek Joslin has been called up for action. Blake has been placed on the injured reserve list after having to leave the Columbus game on Wednesday night.
Joslin has played in two games for San Jose this year and is a +2. During his 10 games with Worcester, the Richmond Hill, Ontario product has registered five assists and ranks second among Worcester defensemen in scoring.
The contest in Detroit will begin at 4:30 p.m. and will be available on CSN California, 98.5 KFOX and sjsharks.com. With a victory, the Sharks could move into first place overall in the NHL standings.
