      Nikita Okhotyuk will draw back into the Sharks' lineup Monday vs. Washington.

      Okhotyuk was a healthy scratch on Saturday, allowing Marc-Edouard Vlasic to re-enter the lineup. However, the two will swap places again, as Okhotyuk will draw back in on Monday in favour of Vlasic. The 22-year-old Okhotyuk has four points (0G / 4A), 14 penalty minutes, 24 blocks, and 17 hits in 11 games this season.
