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

Coach Peter DeBoer said Sunday that Middleton (undisclosed) has a 4-6 week timetable for a return, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
Middleton left last Friday's game against the Golden Knights with the injury, and landed on IR a day after. This news proves that the defenseman is dealing with a serious injury, even though the specifics haven't been announced. As long as Middleton is sidelined, look for Trevor Carrick or Tim Heed (upper body) to draw into the lineup.
