After a slow start to the season, Brandon Saad has heated up nicely, registering four goals and five assists over his last seven games. The 24-year-old left wing, who netted a tally and set up another in Wednesday’s victory, notched just one assist in his first four contests. With fellow defenseman Seth Jones shelved for three weeks with a fractured foot, Dalton Prout returned to the lineup Wednesday for the first time since the triumph in Anaheim on Oct. 28.

Anaheim Ducks (6-5-3):

Hampus Lindholm made his season debut on Wednesday and registered two shots and a minus-1 rating in 18 minutes, 33 seconds of ice time. The 22-year-old Swedish defenseman missed Anaheim’s first 13 games due to a contract dispute that resulted in a new six-year, $31.5 million deal. Michael Sgarbossa, who notched two assists in six games with the Ducks earlier this season, was a healthy scratch Wednesday after being recalled from San Diego of the American Hockey League prior to the game.

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, CSN California (San Jose), CSN Mid-Atlantic (Washington)

San Jose Sharks (7-6-0):

Attempting to bolster a sagging offense that had produced four goals in its previous three games, San Jose called up high-scoring prospect Kevin Labanc, who skated on the No. 2 line with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi in his NHL debut at Washington. Brent Burns tallied his team-leading fifth goal and fellow defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic also tallied. Joe Thornton’s empty-net tally lifted him into a tie with Guy Lafleur for 26th all-time with 1,351 points.

Florida Panthers (6-6-1):

Florida has been held to two goals or fewer in five of its last eight games, but should receive an offensive boost with the expected return of forward Jussi Jokinen to the lineup. Jokinen, who has sat out the past nine games after aggravating a knee injury on Oct. 20, had 14 goals and a career-best 42 assists last season.
Team record: 6-6-1 SU
