Nikolay Goldobin among three sent to Barracuda

Bryan Lerg and Mark Cundari also assigned to the AHL squad.

Nikolay Goldobin, we hardly knew you. After playing a pair of games and recording a point in his latest stint with the Sharks, the Russian has been sent back to the Barracuda. Joining him are Bryan Lerg and Mark Cundari.

With Melker Karlsson playing for the Barracuda this weekend, it seems we might see him back with the Sharks in time for Tuesday's game against the Islanders. He's been working his way back from an injury — his action with the Barracuda is his first of any kind this season.
