SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has assigned goaltender Dimitri Patzold to Worcester (AHL) and recalled goaltender Thomas Greiss from Worcester.
Patzold, 24, made his NHL debut this season and has appeared in three games, all in relief of Evgeni Nabokov.

He was sent to Worcester on a conditioning assignment earlier in the season and posted a 1-1-1 record with a 3.57 goals against average and a .903 save percentage from Nov. 21-24.
The six-foot, 195-pound native of Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan was selected by San Jose in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft (fourth round, 107th overall).
Greiss, 21, has posted a 12-10-1 record with a .900 save percentage and a 3.03 goals against average for Worcester this season. He spent Nov. 19-26 with San Jose dressing, but not appearing in, one game. He has yet to appear in an NHL game in his career.
The six-foot-one, 200-pound native of Fussen, Germany was selected by San Jose in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (3rd round, 94th overall).
