2019 Fantasy Outlook
Middleton is in an interesting spot within the Sharks organization, as he's entering the final year of his entry-level contract and seemingly on the brink of seizing a substantial role in the NHL. The right-shot defenseman had just one cup of coffee with the parent club last year, adding an assist over three games, but his minor-league campaign went fairly well based on an output of five goals, 14 assists and a plus-16 rating through 57 contests. Long term, he projects to be a fixture on the bottom pair with additional utility in the traditional defensive categories such as hits and blocked shots. While there's no real need to stash Middleton in dynasty leagues, he has the potential to emerge as a viable fantasy option down the road. Read Past Outlooks

Lower Body
March 2, 2020
Middleton is week-to-week after sustaining a lower-body injury against the Penguins on Saturday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Middleton appeared to suffer a left leg injury, but the team hasn't released any specifics on the nature of his condition. However, it appears to be serious, as head coach Bob Boughner said there's "a chance" he returns before the end of the season. For now, Brandon Davidson -- who was acquired from the Flames at the trade deadline -- is expected to fill Middleton's void on the bottom pairing.
