Paul Martin will return to the Sharks' lineup tonight, but Ben Smith and Joonas Donskoi remain sidelined with injuries, according to the San Jose Mercury News' Curtis Pashelka and CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz. In their place, John McCarthy has been called up from the Barracuda, and will make his debut on the fourth line. Eddie Lack will make his second start for the Hurricanes, while Martin Jones once again gets the nod in the San Jose crease.
