Sharks make roster changes, as one player unexpectedly joins road trip


The Sharks placed goalie James Reimer on injured reserve Monday and recalled forward Jeffrey Viel from the Barracuda, the team’s AHL affiliate. A team spokesperson said Reimer, forward Nico Sturm, and defensemen Mario Ferraro all flew with the Sharks Monday to Montreal, where they begin a four-game road trip against the Canadiens on Tuesday. Sturm and Ferraro are already on IR. Sharks coach David Quinn said after the team’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday that Ferraro, out with a lower-body injury, would not join the team on the trip. But those plans changed, and Ferraro, if he’s able to play, would be eligible to be activated prior to the Sharks’ game with the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. Ferraro, 24, last played Friday against the Los Angeles Kings. He blocked four shots in that game and was placed on IR the next day. Ferraro is 12th in the NHL with 47 blocked shots this season. The Sharks also have games against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday and close out the trip against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. San Jose has lost five of its last six games and entered Monday in seventh place in the Pacific Division with a 7-13-4 record.
