Burish Officially Clears Waivers

News: Adam Burish officially cleared waivers on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish had a terrible start to the season scoring just one goal and two assists in 20 games. Burish will likely report to AHL Worcester and remain there for the rest of the season unless San Jose suffers any injuries.

Sharks Waive Burish

News: Adam Burish was placed on waivers by the Sharks on Saturday, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: Adam Burish's dismissal likely signals that the Sharks are just about ready to welcome Mike Brown (hand) back from injured reserve. Once Burish clears waivers, he's expected to be assigned to AHL Worcester, where he'll serve as organizational fourth-line depth.

Burish Will Be Scratched By Sharks

News: Adam Burish will be a scratch for the Sharks on Thursday against the Lightning, according to the Mercury News' Curtis Pashelka.
Analysis: Adam Burish, though he has had limited ice time and was on the cusp of relevance in limited time last season, has been a fixture in the Sharks lineup this season, playing all 17 games so far. However, he hasn't been very productive, tallying only a goal and two assists through those 17 games.

Sharks' Burish Handed 16 PIM In Win

News: Adam Burish was handed 16 PIM in Sunday's win over Anaheim.
Analysis: The four-liner played a big part in a nasty affair Sunday that saw the two teams combine for 165 PIM. Adam Burish has a goal and an assist in 10 games this season, but sees limited minutes and no power-play time, meaning he won't be very valuable to your fantasy team. Unless your league revolves around PIM, Burish won't do you much good, as there are probably better options out there.

Sharks' Burish Scores First Goal In 19 Months

News: Adam Burish opened the scoring Thursday in a loss to the Jackets with his first goal since March 5, 2013.
Analysis: Limited to just 15 games last season, Adam Burish didn't record a single point, so we have to go all the way back to March of the season before to find his last goal. On the bright side, with two points in eight games this year, Burish is on pace to blow away the three points he posted over 61 games spanning the last two seasons.

Sharks' Burish Never Makes It To Postseason

News: Adam Burish took a shot to the hand in late March and underwent a procedure on March 26, but never made an appearance in the Sharks' seven-game series against the Kings.
Analysis: Adam Burish had a couple of injuries this season that kept him from being productive or even playing much. He played only 15 games, making his debut on February 5, and didn't register a point the entire season. In fact, he only had nine shots on the year. Burish is capable of being an effective role player, but rarely lasts the full season — be it for injury or performance reasons. That makes him difficult to draft in fantasy. He doesn't generally acquire the kind of stats that make you want to roll the dice on him playing a full season.

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.
