Sharks right wing Adam Burish has back surgery for disc problem

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 30-year-old Burish is on injured reserve and hasn't played this season because of a disc problem.

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

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
