SAN JOSE, Calif. - Defenceman Dan Boyle will miss his third straight game for the San Jose Sharks because of an undisclosed upper body injury.

Boyle is a member of the Canadian Olympic team. He leads Sharks defencemen with 43 points.

San Jose called up defenceman Jason Demers from Worcester of the AHL to play against the Blackhawks. The Sharks also called up Logan Couture from Worcester.
