Ozzy Wiesblatt has been suspended for three games.

Yesterday, in the San Jose Barracuda’s season opener, he took a run at the Rockford IceHogs’ Kale Howarth. Howarth was not near the puck.

Wiesblatt received a tripping call and a match penalty. The AHL added a three-game suspension on top of that for interference.

The Barracuda would drop their season opener 7-2. The San Jose Sharks’ 2020 first-round pick missed this afternoon’s game, when the Cuda returned the favor with a 7-2 victory over the IceHogs. Howarth did not play after suffering an upper-body injury.

Wiesblatt will also miss next weekend’s two-game road trip against the Henderson Silver Knights.


With Jack Han’s help, breaking down some of the plays from the San Jose Sharks’ season opener that got Henry Thrun scratched, plus areas that Thomas Bordeleau and Filip Zadina can improve.

Mike Hoffman and Mikael Granlund explain the differences between playing the point on the power play, as opposed to the flank.

Mikael Granlund is out with a week-to-week lower-body injury.

The San Jose Sharks have never had a harder start to the season.


The Athletic gave their bold predictions for the 2023-24 NHL season. And they are pretty high on Filip Zadina.

The San Jose Sharks rocked their “Los Tiburones” jerseys during their walk to honor Hispanic heritage.


Former San Jose Sharks forward Steven Lorentz is gelling in with the Florida Panthers quite nicely.

Devon Toews’ seven-year contract extension will look pretty good for the Colorado Avalanche in the future.

The Vegas Golden Knights can ride defense and goaltending to defend their Stanley Cup title.

Washington Capitals coach Spencer Carbery believes his team can only improve after a season-opening loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

PHN’s Dan Kingerski believes the NHL has some explaining to do after that marquee match-up was behind a paywall on ESPN+.
