SAN JOSE — Forwards Micheal Haley and Timo Meier, defenseman Dylan DeMelo, and goaltender Aaron Dell were the last players off at the Sharks’ morning skate, and the former three are set to be scratched tonight while Dell will back up Martin Jones.

The Sharks lineup tonight, as a result, will look like it did yesterday and much like it did in their dress rehearsal against the Arizona Coyotes five days ago:

Tomas Hertl-Joe Thornton-Joe Pavelski

Mikkel Boedker-Logan Couture-Joonas Donskoi

Patrick Marleau-Chris Tierney-Joel Ward

Matt Nieto-Tommy Wingels-Melker Karlsson

Marc-Edouard Vlasic-Justin Braun

Paul Martin-Brent Burns

Brenden Dillon-David Schlemko

Martin Jones

Aaron Dell

Meanwhile, former Shark Devin Setoguchi will make his return to the NHL on the Kings’ top line, while defenseman Tom Gilbert and forward Nic Dowd are scratched according to LA Kings Insider Jon Rosen. Tanner Pearson will miss the first of two regular season games, as he continues to serve a three-game suspension that began in the preseason. The Kings’ lines are as follows, according to Rosen:

Dustin Brown-Anze Kopitar-Devin Setoguchi

Teddy Purcell-Jeff Carter-Tyler Toffoli

Dwight King-Nick Shore-Trevor Lewis

Kyle Clifford-Andy Andreoff-Jordan Nolan

Jake Muzzin-Drew Doughty

Brayden McNabb-Alec Martinez

Derek Forbort-Andy Greene

Jonathan Quick
