The Sharks recalled forward Timo Meier from the San Jose Barracuda, the team announced on Thursday morning.
Meier leads the Barracuda in goals (9), and sits third on the team in points (15) while playing in 17 games this season. He is tied for the team lead in plus/minus with a plus-8 rating on the year.
The 20-year-old is currently tied for 18th place in the AHL in goals.
Meier had a career-long four game point streak (5 goals, 3 assists) from Nov. 25 to Dec. 4, and had his first multi-goal game on Dec. 3 at San Antonio. This is his first professional season.
The six-foot, 210-pound native of Herisau, Switzerland, was the Sharks first-round selection (ninth overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.
In addition, defenseman Mirco Mueller has been assigned to the San Jose Barracuda.
Mueller, 21, ranks third among defensemen on the Barracuda in assists (7) and fourth in points, in 18 games this season. In 80 career AHL games, he has 21 points (2 goals, 19 assists).
In 50 NHL games, Mueller has tallied one goal and three assists. He made his NHL debut on October 8, 2014 at Los Angeles.
The six-foot-three, 210-pound native of Winterthur, Switzerland, was originally selected by San Jose in the first round (18th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.
