SAN JOSE – Goalie Adin Hill was not on the ice Monday for the Sharks’ morning skate after he was injured the day before in practice.
Hill was slated to be the starter for the Sharks’ preseason game with the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night at SAP Center. On Sunday, though, he left practice early after he took a shot off the wrist and did not return.
Sharks coach Bob Boughner after practice labeled Hill’s injury as a “stinger” and didn’t believe it was serious but added that Hill wouldn’t play against the Ducks if he was still sore.
The severity of Hill’s injury was not immediately known.
Alexei Melnichuk, reassigned to the Barracuda last week, has rejoined Sharks camp, which now has 31 players.
Hill, 25, was acquired by the Sharks in July and signed to a two-year, $4.35 million deal in August.
