Sharks' timeline for Erik Karlsson's return pushed back

It’ll be at least a few more days before injured San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson is able to skate again. It was first hoped that Karlsson would be able skate sometime this week and potentially be able to play Saturday when the Sharks host the St. Louis Blues. But Sharks coach Bob Boughner said Tuesday that Karlsson, who is dealing with a groin issue, may not skate again until next week, pushing back the timeline for his return.
