Sharks’ Burns (undisclosed) to miss next two games

1 Comment

Brent Burns’ nightmare season continues.

That was the word out of San Jose on Monday — the Sharks defenseman will reportedly miss the next two games with an undisclosed injury, CSN Bay Area reports.

Burns, 27, left Saturday’s 3-1 loss in Dallas just five minutes into the first period, and didn’t return.

It’s unclear what the injury is, or if it’s related to the lower-body issue that hampered Burns to start the year — he’s only played in six of San Jose’s 17 games this year and looked out of sorts when in the lineup.

Burns has yet to register a point this season and boasts an ugly minus-5 rating.

The Sharks, who have just one win in their last 10, will begin a three-game homestand on Tuesday against Colorado, then follow it up with a date against Detroit on Thursday — those being the two games Burns will miss.

He could be back for Saturday’s date against Nashville.
