SAN JOSE – The Sharks have recalled left wing Micheal Haley from the Worcester Sharks to take the roster spot temporarily vacated by a suspended John Scott.
Haley, 28, leads Worcester with 10 goals and 60 penalty minutes in 27 games. He also has three assists, for 13 points and a -10 rating.
The five-foot-10, 205-pounder has 52 games of NHL experience with the New York Islanders and New York Rangers, with two goals, one assist and 163 penalty minutes. He last appeared in nine games with the Rangers in 2012-13, going scoreless with 12 penalty minutes.

The Sharks signed Haley to a one-year contract as an unrestricted free agent on July 10, 2014.
"Micheal plays with an edge and competes hard on every shift," general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement on the day Haley was signed. "His hard-working, physical game brings a different dimension that teams have to account for, and he is a great teammate that will mesh well with our organization."
The Sharks will visit Los Angeles on Saturday. Scott will be serving the first of a four-game suspension for punching Anaheim’s Tim Jackman on Dec. 22.
