Sharks' Burish Could Be Back For Postseason

News: Adam Burish (hand) hasn't ruled out the possibility of returning during the playoffs, CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish had pins inserted in two fingers he broke while attempting to block a shot Tuesday night and is projected to miss the rest of the regular season. With the playoffs not set to begin until April 16, Burish could be back for the opening round if everything goes flawlessly with his recovery, though a return in the later rounds would seem more likely.

Sharks' Burish Undergoes Hand Procedure

News: Adam Burish underwent a procedure on his injured hand Wednesday, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: The Sharks provided no indications on how long the procedure will keep Adam Burish sidelined, aside from coach Todd McLellan saying after Tuesday's win over the Oilers that the forward wouldn't be available for a while. With that in mind, fantasy owners probably shouldn't bank on Burish offering any contributions over the final handful of games. Burish had previously missed the first four months of the season recovering from back surgery before returning for the last 15 games.

Sharks' Burish (Hand) Could Miss Time

News: Adam Burish "will need some work done" on his hand, which he injured when blocking a shot on Tuesday, David Pollak of the Bay Area News Group reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish used his arm to block a shot in the second period of Tuesday's game, and went down immediately, holding his ailing arm. Reports currently don't look optimistic, so expect the 31-year-old to be out of the lineup for the foreseeable future.

Sharks' Burish Leaves Game On Tuesday

News: Adam Burish blocked a shot late in the second period during a penalty kill. The shot hit him in the arm and he went down, holding his arm, and skated straight off the ice afterward. He has not returned to the game.
Analysis: Look for an update after the game. At the moment it just appears that Adam Burish won't return to the game.

Burish Ready To Go For Sharks

News: After back surgery sidelined him for most of the season Adam Burish is ready to be a regular fixture in the San Jose lineup once again. He's likely to be a part of bruising fourth line featuring Andrew Desjardins and Mike Brown.
Analysis: In the two games prior to the Olympic break he registered two shots and was hovering around ten minutes of playing time. His offensive upside is limited by his fourth line status and his defensive role on the team.

Burish To Return For Sharks On Wednesday

News: Adam Burish (back) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: Adam Burish -- who recorded three points and 25 PIM in 46 games for the Sharks in 2012-13 -- has yet to play this season after undergoing back surgery. He's likely to be eased into the lineup and won't see top-six minutes, at least to start.

Pre-Break Return Looming For Sharks' Burish?

News: Adam Burish (back) visited a doctor Tuesday in anticipation of receiving clearance to return from IR, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Though the Sharks haven't confirmed that Adam Burish will be available for Wednesday's game against the Sharks, Tuesday's demotion of Eriah Hayes to AHL Worcester opens up a roster spot for the forward if he does in fact receive clearance to play. Burish has not this season after a preseason back injury ultimately required surgery in mid-October. He'd see most of his time on the fourth line upon his activation.

Back Surgery On Tap For Sharks' Burish

News: Adam Burish will undergo back surgery in the coming days and is out indefinitely, CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish first suffered the injury in the Sept. 16 preseason opener and hasn't took the ice since. Don't be surprised if the surgery keeps him on injured reserve for another month or more.

Sharks' Burish Still Not Skating

News: Adam Burish (lower body) has not resumed skating yet, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish was hoping to begin skating last week, but has been dealing with setbacks in his recovery. He hasn't been able to skate since the Sharks' preseason opener, back on Sept. 16, and doesn't yet have a return timetable.

Sharks' Burish Could Begin Skating This Week

News: Adam Burish (lower body) could begin skating this week, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish was originally expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, but has yet to even resume skating. Once he makes it back on to the ice, the Sharks should have better idea of where Burish stands.

Sharks' Burish (Lower Body) Out For Thursday

News: Adam Burish (lower body) will not play Thursday against the Canucks, CSNBayArea.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd McLellan said last week that he expected Adam Burish to be ready for the opener, but the 30-year-old center reportedly suffered a setback recently and will not end up taking the ice Thursday. Matt Pelech was recalled and will fill in for Burish on the fourth line.

Burish Unlikely To Play Opener For Sharks

News: Adam Burish is doubtful to appear in the Sharks season opener Thursday against Vancouver, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish hasn't played since the Sharks' preseason opener and, while he may be close to healthy, he still needs to get into game shape. All signs point to Burish sitting out at least the first game of the season.

Sharks' Burish Misses Practice Tuesday

News: Adam Burish (lower body) did not skate at practice Tuesday, CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish reportedly had a setback in his recovery and is not available to skate. His status for the team's season opener against the Canucks on Thursday is currently in doubt.

Burish Still Out For San Jose

News: Adam Burish missed his third preseason game Monday with a lower body injury, though coach Todd McLellan told the Mercury News that his fourth line winger will be ready for the season opener.
Analysis: There's no definitive answer on whether Adam Burish will be ready for the opener, but, for your fantasy team, it really shouldn't matter.

Burish Returns To Lineup For Sharks

News: Adam Burish returned to the lineup from a hand injury with four shots and 9:41 in ice time on Sunday.
Analysis: Adam Burish wasn't used a lot on Sunday with just 9:41 on the ice. While there's no official word on how much he'll be used, temper your expectations for now.

Sharks Get Burish Back

News: Adam Burish (hand) will return to action for Sunday's Game 6 against the Kings, the Sports Network reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish, who is expected to center the Sharks' fourth line Sunday, will also bolster the team's penalty-killing unit in his return to the lineup.

Sharks' Burish Expected To Return Sunday

News: Adam Burish (hand) is expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's Game 6 against the Kings.
Analysis: If Adam Burish plays Sunday, it will be his first game action since May 7, as he has been out with a broken hand. However, he recorded just three points in 46 games this season, so even if he returns, his presence is unlikely to have a fantasy impact.

Adam Burish

Sharks' Burish (Hand) Could Play Game 6

News: Coach Todd McLellan said Adam Burish (hand) is "very close" to playing and could be available for Sunday's Game 6 against the Kings, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish was similarly questionable for Game 5 but ultimately sat out in the 3-0 loss to the Kings. The 30-year-old didn't supply much in the way of offense in the regular season, charting just 3 points and minus-7 rating over 46 games.

Sharks' Burish Could Play Thursday

News: Adam Burish (hand) could play in Thursday's Game 5 against the Kings, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish skated with the regulars at Thursday's morning skate, but has to meet with coaches before a decision is made about whether he will be in the lineup Thursday or not. Even if he plays, a fourth line winger with a broken hand is not a good bet to provide much offense.

Sharks' Burish Progressing, But Still Not Ready

News: Adam Burish (hand) is progressing, but will miss Tuesday's Game 4 against the Kings, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Analysis: The fact that Adam Burish's hand will probably keep him out a little while longer and his lack of offensive production leave him with very little fantasy value.

Sharks' Burish Dealing With Broken Hand

News: Adam Burish's upper body injury has been classified as a broken hand, CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish has already been ruled out for the remainder of the second-round series against the Kings. While Burish maintained that he'd like to get on the ice at some point in the series, that seems unlikely to happen until he actually gets on the ice in practice, which he is not yet doing.

Sharks' Burish Sidelined

News: Adam Burish will miss the Sharks' second-round playoff series due to an upper body injury that he sustained in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Canucks, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish had just a goal, two assists and 25 penalty minutes in 46 games with San Jose this past season, so his injury is of more import to the team's right wing depth than it is to fantasy owners.

Sharks' Burish Gets Third Point Of The Year

News: Adam Burish had an assist Tuesday night against Vancouver, along with three shots and a +1 rating.
Analysis: Adam Burish's offensive production has been anemic this year. He's not a big points guy, and he's having a slow year.

Adam Burish

Sharks' Burish Gets Monkey Off His Back

News: Adam Burish ended a 45-game goal-scoring drought with a shorthanded goal in the second period of Tuesday's shootout win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Both Adam Burish and Scott Gomez scored their first goals in roughly forever Tuesday, giving the Sharks some unexpected sources of offense on a night when their main guys didn't do anything. In his role as a depth-liner and killer of penalties, Burish has more value to the Sharks than he does in most fantasy formats.

Sharks Sign Burish To Four-Year Deal

News: Adam Burish has signed a four-year deal with San Jose worth approximately $1.8 million per season, reports Gord Miller of TSN.
Analysis: This versatile checker won't deliver high point totals, but he brings a tenacity to the ice that's hard to beat. He has changed his game from pure pugilist to tough winger and that will serve him well on the Sharks' third line. His fantasy upside is 15-20 points and 100 PIMs.
