Injured shark depth winger in the first period vs. New York Islanders

Jonah Gadjovich was injured in the first round of a San Jose Sharks game with the New York Islanders on Thursday at the UBS Arena in Elmont, NY.

Gadjovich was skating for the blue line inside the Sharks’ defensive zone when he intercepted a shot from Islanders defenseman Noah Dobson. The puck seemed to have slipped through the inside of Gadjovich’s left leg, and was struggling to put any weight on the leg before falling on the ice.

Gadjovich stayed down for several seconds as he was introduced by chief athletic trainer Ray Tufts. Again, as he was helped out of the snow by his teammates, he was unable to bear any weight on the foot.

The Sharks said before the start of the second period that there would be doubts about Gadjovich’s return.

Along with fellow wingers Kevin LaBlanc and center Jasper Weatherby, Gadjiovich was replaced first by Noah Gregor on the Shark Line, and then by Matt Nieto.

Gadjiovich, who had been claimed exemption by San Jose from the Vancouver Canucks before the start of the regular season, was playing his 13th game for the Sharks. He has one assist and averages 9:58 of ice time per game.

New York opened the scoring in just 64 seconds on a goal scored by Matt Barzal, who beat goalkeeper Edin Hill to the high blocker side with a shot to the left of the Sharks’ net from a faceoff dot.

The Sharks withdrew that goal with 10:50 to go first, as Nick Bonino scored his third in five games with a graceful pass from Jonathan Dahlen, when a goalkeeper from Jean-Gabriel Pejo’s intervening period. was over.

The Sharks were playing the third game of a five-game road trip that continues with games against the New York Rangers on Friday and the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Sunday. The Sharks began the journey with wins over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday and the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.
