Jason Demers had been “chomping at the bit” to get back in the San Jose Sharks lineup.

Well, he’s back in, as per a tweet from Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.

The puck drops tonight on Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinal between the Sharks and L.A. Kings. The series is tied 2-2 with the home team winning every game so far.

Demers, 24, hasn’t played since April 18.

“I feel good,” Demers said earlier this week. “It’s just a question of getting back into game shape. As soon as you do a couple of shifts, especially in this kind of series, you’ll be in shape real quick. I’m just helping out wherever I can and going where they tell me to go.”

Coming out of the lineup for the Sharks is, according to Kurz, Tim Kennedy.
