  • Burish Clears Waivers

    News: Adam Burish cleared waivers on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
    Analysis: The Sharks will now buyout the rest of the veteran winger's contract, meaning he'll become an unrestricted free agent. The move hardly comes as a surprise, as the 32-year-old struggled to maintain his spot on the Shark's roster this year, only suiting up for 20 games with the NHL club. At this point in time it isn't clear whether any NHL team will be willing to take a flyer on the aging forward. Adam Burish very well may have played his last game in the NHL.
  • Sharks Loan Burish To Chicago Wolves

    News: The Sharks have loaned Adam Burish the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.
    Analysis: The move brings Adam Burish closer to his off-season home and indicates that there's next to no chance that we'll see Burish in the NHL again this season. The Sharks have no intention of using him.
  • 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.
