Erik Karlsson made history on Thursday night.

Preview/Lines #13: Karlsson Could Stand Alone in Hockey History Tonight

Here’s what the San Jose Sharks star is shooting for tonight against the Anaheim Ducks:

  • Karlsson is ahead of Bobby Orr’s 13-game pace right now, but Orr is the NHL record-holder for most goals by a defenseman after 17 team games with 12 in 1974-75.
  • Karlsson has a chance to set the San Jose Sharks record for most points after 14 team games tonight. He has 18 points after 13 games. Patrick Marleau (2009-10), Owen Nolan (1999-00), and Craig Janney (1995-96) share the franchise record with 19 points through 14 games.
  • Looking ahead at other franchise marks, Marleau had 21 points in 15 team games to kick off 2009-10. For Sharks defensemen, Brent Burns had 20 points after 16 contests to begin the 2018-19 campaign.

Karlsson keeps defying expectations, why not once again tonight?

San Jose Sharks (3-8-2)

David Quinn suggested that the San Jose Sharks should run the same line-up tonight as they did in their last game. That includes James Reimer starting.

In that case:

Anaheim Ducks (3-7-1)
