Mikael Granlund’s health has been a real rollercoaster.

On Monday, after missing four games with a lower-body injury, he was on the verge of coming back the next night against the Florida Panthers.

“We actually thought he was playing,” head coach David Quinn said.

But Granlund didn’t finish that practice and didn’t skate on Tuesday or Wednesday.

On Wednesday, head coach David Quinn told San Jose Hockey Now, “He’s not going to play the rest of this trip.”

Preview/Lines #7: Granlund Will Not Play on Road Trip

Granlund would miss the back-to-back Thursday-Friday set with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Carolina Hurricanes.

Quinn called Granlund’s injury day-to-day, but also suggested it could be week-to-week.

But now, Quinn says Granlund is “expected” to play this afternoon in Washington.

“He’s had some different approach to treatment,” Quinn explained, “and they’ve worked very well.”

Whatever that treatment is, San Jose will be happy to see Granlund back. The Sharks need all the help that they can get, and four-time 50-point scorer Granlund certainly qualifies.
