Sharks’ Meier out 4 weeks with mono

San Jose Sharks prospect Timo Meier will see his professional hockey debut delayed.

The 19-year-old will not take part in any NHL or AHL games for roughly four weeks as he deals with mononucleosis (otherwise known as mono), the team announced on Friday.

Meier was drafted with the ninth overall pick in 2015 and split last season between the Halifax Mooseheads and the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL where he had a combined 34 goals and 87 points in 52 games.
