Tyler Kennedy C SAN 23 Days

Kennedy assisted on John Scott's goal in the Sharks' 3-1 loss to the Flames on Wednesday.

After missing three straight games to conclude January due to injury, 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 looks like he'll draw back into the lineup for Monday's game against the Oilers, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.

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.

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.

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.

Kennedy is dealing with a lower body injury, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.

As a result, Kennedy won't play Thursday against the Ducks, with his status beyond that contest not yet clarified.

Kennedy (unspecified issue) was not at Wednesday's morning skate, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.

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 played for the first time since December 6 on Tuesday, registering one shot and a plus-1 rating in a win over Arizona.

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.

Kennedy (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

Kennedy absorbed contact at Monday's practice and was given clearance by doctors to return to game action. He'll replace Andrew Desjardins (personal) on the Sharks' fourth line for their game Tuesday in Arizona.

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.

That's great news for the Sharks, who will benefit from the depth he provides, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. 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.

Kennedy (left shoulder) was on the ice for a workout with the Sharks' strength and conditioning coach Friday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

Kennedy doesn't appear particularly close to a return, as he's not yet been cleared to practice with the rest of the Sharks. He'll likely continue to skate on his own for the next couple of days.

Coach Todd McLellan said Kennedy would be out "awhile" after suffering a shoulder injury Saturday in Calgary, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

McLellan was uncertain if 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.
