The Sharks have reassigned defenseman Matt Tennyson to the Worcester in the AHL and activated Justin Braun from injured reserve.
Braun has been out for about a month after blocking a shot against the New Jersey Devils. His return will surely bolster a Sharks defense that has had trouble keeping pucks out of their net. It's a shame that Tennyson is the one that has to go, but he is one of the couple of players that doesn't have to pass through waivers. The time is ticking for Scott Hannan or Matt Irwin. One of them will have to be moved in the near future to make room for Tennyson.
