Sharks place F Sheppard on IR

San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Sharks placed forward James Sheppard on injured reserve Tuesday with a lower-body injury.

Sheppard has one assist in nine games for the Sharks this season. The ninth player taken in the 2006 draft, Sheppard missed the previous two NHL campaigns due to injury.

In a corresponding move, the Sharks recalled forward Matt Pelech from Worcester of the American Hockey League.
