SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Sharks right wing Adam Burish has had back surgery.

Executive vice-president and general manager Doug Wilson said Dr. Robert Watkins performed the surgery in Los Angeles on Thursday.

The Sharks have not set a timetable for Burish's return to the ice.

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
