TAMPA, Fla. – Good news is scarce around the San Jose Sharks these days.

They’re 0-5-1. Logan Couture started the season on IR and is still on it. Alexander Barabanov just broke his finger. And Mikael Granlund, who was on the verge of coming back from a lower-body injury, has been shelved again.

Quinn: Barabanov Out Week-to-Week With Broken Finger

Heading into this road trip, the expectation was that Granlund, out since opening night, would play.

He participated fully in Saturday’s morning skate in Nashville, then started off Monday’s practice in Sunrise on a regular line. Granlund, however, didn’t finish that practice.

“We actually thought he was playing [against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday],” Quinn said yesterday. “Thought he was in. But unfortunately, it didn’t work out.”

So day-to-day with Granlund is back to week-to-week.

“He’s still getting evaluated,” Quinn said. “Not really sure where we’re at with him.”
