Blichfeld will draw into the Sharks lineup on Saturday.
The Sharks reportedly want to send a "message" to Marcus Sorensen, so Blichfeld will take his spot in the lineup on Saturday. Blichfeld was a seventh-round pick in 2016, who has no points in two NHL games this year but had 25 points (13G / 12A) in 27 AHL games when he was called up. He is expected to start on the top line with Tomas Hertl and Evander Kane.
Blichfeld has been recalled from San Jose (AHL) and is expected to make his NHL debut on Thursday.
Blichfeld was a seventh-round pick (No.210 overall) in 2016 and is leading the Barracuda in goals (9) and points (19) in his first professional season. Blichfeld is expected to make his NHL debut on the third line with Patrick Marleau and Barclay Goodrow.
