The San Jose Sharks have some lineup changes ahead of tonight’s game against the St. Louis Blues.

After relieving Martin Jones in a losing effort against Arizona on Saturday, Devan Dubnyk will be making his first start with the San Jose Sharks. Dubnyk was acquired by the Sharks in the offseason, after spending parts of six seasons with the Minnesota Wild.

Two players are also projected to make debuts tonight, with Radim Simek likely to make his season debut and Fredrik Handemark projected to make his NHL debut. Simek had been hurt to start the year, while Handemark was initially listed as a member of the taxi squad. Jacob Middleton and Stefan Noesen are expected to come out of the lineup.
