Sorenson only managed five goals on 20 shots, plus two assists, in 32 games during the regular season. However, he managed five points in 10 playoff games.

EDGE Analysis

That playoff performance is notable, but there is a major caveat on his numbers. He had a 44.4 shooting percentage, which is obviously unsustainable. The 26-year-old only has 11 career regular-season points, so his postseason numbers shouldn't get you too excited heading into next year.

Sorensen opened the scoring and helped his team clinch its playoff series with a 2-1 win over Anaheim on Wednesday in Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals.

EDGE Analysis

Sorensen had just five goals in 32 games in the regular season, but in four playoff games, he has three goals and four points, providing nearly 20 percent of his team's playoff goals so far. The question is whether his hot streak is because he's stepped his game up or because the opponent was Anaheim. His performance in Game 1 against Vegas should help decide if this was a fluke or if Sorensen can be trusted long-term.

Sorensen scored in the second period and added an assist on Eric Fehr's 10 minutes after, lifting his team to an 8-1 pounding of Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

With two goals in two playoff games, it appears Sorensen has made the adjustments needed to the NHL level and become a contributor. The ice time is a worry, but he's worth a flyer at this point if you have space for a cheaper play.

Sorensen was sent in a paper transaction to AHL San Jose, but was shortly recalled per the official AHL transaction log.

EDGE Analysis

The move was to make Sorensen eligible for the AHL playoffs, and a common transaction across the NHL. So far this season Sorensen has scored four goals in 21 games despite only logging 10:03 of ice time, but could see a decrease in his role with newly acquired Evander Kane taking a spot in the top six.

Sorensen was called up to the NHL and is in the lineup for Thursday's game against Vancouver.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old has appeared in 18 games at the NHL level, pocketing three goals and registering a minus-5 rating. Sorenson is simply a depth forward at this point while the team is dealing with some injuries. He's not worth a roster spot in most fantasy formats.

Sorensen was demoted to AHL San Jose on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Sorensen's stint in the minors may just be a paper transaction, as the club didn't make a corresponding roster move to bolster its forward depth. The Sharks are back in action Thursday against the Golden Knights, so don't be surprised to see the winger at the game-day skate.

Sorensen was called up from AHL San Jose on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

This is basically just a trip down the hall for Sorensen, as the Sharks have the luxury of sharing the Shark Tank with their minor-league affiliate. The Swede is getting a closer look in the wake of an injury to veteran Joe Thornton, who's ailing right knee is expected to shelve him for multiple weeks, Sorensen has managed three goals on only 10 shots in the NHL this campaign, and while that's not a sustainable conversion rate, the second-year winger's confidence must be brimming in the infancy of his career.

Sorensen was loaned to AHL San Jose on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Prior to the demotion, the Swede had appeared in the last 15 games for the Sharks, notching three goals on just 10 shots during the span. Sorensen has lit up the AHL the last two seasons combing for 48 points (22 goals, 26 assists) in 60 games, and if he keeps up similar production, he might not have a long stint in the minors.

Sorensen was recalled to San Jose on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Sorensen rarely sits out when he's called up, having played in 13 consecutive NHL games when he's on the roster. The Swedish winger has three goals in that span, while averaging 10:35 if ice time per game. Sorensen could suit up as early as Sunday against the Jets.

Sorensen was returned to AHL San Jose on Friday, Paul Gackle of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sorensen's contributions have been relatively minimal during his 13-game stint with the Sharks, totaling points (all goals) over that span. He frequently floats between the two rosters, and there is a chance he returns to the Sharks later in the season, but the winger remains off the vast majority of fantasy radars.
