San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Sharks placed forward James
Sheppard on injured reserve Tuesday with a lower-body injury.
Sheppard has one assist in nine games for the Sharks this season. The ninth
player taken in the 2006 draft, Sheppard missed the previous two NHL campaigns
due to injury.
In a corresponding move, the Sharks recalled forward Matt Pelech from
Worcester of the American Hockey League.
