Sharks' Joachim Blichfeld: In concussion protocol

Blichfield is in the league's concussion protocol and won't be an option against Colorado on Monday, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports. Blichfield has featured in just five games for the Sharks this season in which he averaged a mere 8:41 of ice time and recorded one goal on three shots, 12 PIM and two blocks. Even once cleared to play, the 22-year-old winger is far from a lock for the lineup and may still serve as a healthy scratch heading into the final games of the year.

Joachim Blichfeld suspended two games for hit on MacKinnon

Everyone is talking about San Jose Sharks forward Joachim Blichfeld’s season debut, but it’s not good news for the 22-year-old. About halfway through the third period of last night’s 4-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche, Blichfeld was heading back to the bench and laid a hit on Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon. Though Blichfeld may have intended for shoulder-to-shoulder contact, the hit instead saw primary contact between Blichfeld’s shoulder and MacKinnon’s head.

Blichfeld's season debut was cut short when he was given a match penalty on the play. It also warranted supplemental discipline, which will see the Danish forward miss games Friday and Saturday versus the Golden Knights. Blichfeld is eligible to return Monday versus the Blues.
