Sharks make Boedker a healthy scratch
By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher
The 27-year-old winger has been a healthy scratch one other time this season.
In 38 games this season, he has two goals and six assists. He has spent a limited time playing on the lines with Thornton or Couture.
Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer said he had a talk with Bøedker about his play.
“I know this kid and I know his character. My conversation with him was, heading into Christmas, he probably played eight or 10 of the best games he’s played here,” DeBoer said. “Might have been our best player six or seven of those nights. He’s 40 games in, he knows our systems. He knows how we want to play. He’s been able to play that way and been effective for more than a game or two. He’s done it for a stretch. Now, it’s just consistently bringing that.
“This is a tough division we’re in. You can’t take your foot off the gas. We’ve got tough decisions to make every night, and we’ve got good players sitting out. I think that’s the message, and he gets it. I’m sure we’ll get a good response when he’s back in.”
