SAN JOSE -- Sharks forward Adam Burish underwent a medical procedure Wednesday after injuring his hand blocking a shot in Tuesday night's 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.
Details were not immediately available, nor how long Burish is expected to be sidelined. Sharks coach Todd McLellan did say after the win that Burish likely would not be available for a while.
Burish missed the first four months of the season recovering from back surgery after he was hurt in a preseason game against the Vancouver Canucks. He returned to his customary fourth-line energy role Feb. 7, and had no points in the 14 games he played.
After blocking a shot by Oiler defenseman Jeff Petry at 14:05, Burish skated directly to the Sharks locker room, clutching his left hand and in obvious pain.
