We have recalled #SJSharks Adin Hill and Scott Reedy from the @sjbarracuda and Logan Couture and Lane Pederson have been placed in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.

Boughner says Logan Couture tested positive but does not have symptoms.— Curtis Pashelka (@CurtisPashelka) January 4, 2022
Sharks coach Bob Boughner said Couture and Pederson will remain in Detroit and quarantine for now. He said it’s possible they will drive to Philadelphia and fly home with the team on Sunday if they are out of protocol by then.— Corey Masisak (@cmasisak22) January 4, 2022
Boughner said the lines are still TBD, but did say that Hertl will “probably” center Dahlen and Meier with Bonino moving up to the second line.
Vlasic and Gadjovich are still on the ice at LCA with Ryan Merkley, Nick Merkley and Zach Sawchenko. https://t.co/Xi41ynM6Wy— Corey Masisak (@cmasisak22) January 4, 2022
