Sharks’ G Martin Jones Not At Monday Morning Practice After Injury Against Jets
The San Jose Sharks held their morning skate session Monday and goaltender Martin Jones was no where to be seen on the ice.
Barracuda goaltender, Antoine Bibeau, was in net during practice, though there’s no official call up from the AHL.
Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group tweeted the news this morning.

Jones and assistant coach Steve Spott noted that the goaltender is fine and injury is currently day-to-day.

The lower-body injury occurred in the third period of the match up against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Though Sharks trainer, Ray Tufts, checked out Jones on the ice, the Jones remained in the game for the final six and a half minutes, earning a shut out with 38 saves.
He will likely be ruled out against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday, which will move goaltender Aaron Dell into the net. Dell is currently holds a 2-3-1 record so far this season.
