Brent Burns is out tonight after taking a hit to the mouth in Saturday's game. He could be back by Thursday vs. Boston.

Burns has been off to a hot-start scoring four goals and four assists in eight games. On Yahoo he is still D eligible giving him great value when he is playing on Joe Thornton's right wing. Freddie Hamilton will replace Burns on the top-line.

Looking for a way to spark his team's sluggish offense, coach Todd McLellan turned defenseman Brent Burns into a forward Tuesday night in his first game back since suffering a leg injury more than two weeks ago. Burns scored a goal.

He began the game on a third line with Scott Gomez and James Sheppard. After scoring McLellan gave Burns regular shifts on a line with Joe Thornton and Logan Couture as well as power play time on the blue line.

McLellan expects #SJSharks Burns to get clearance to play tonight vs. STL - and he'll be on 3rd line w/23 and 15 plus power play time on D.

Yes you read that right, the Sharks are experimenting playing Burns at forward. This will certainly help Burns' fantasy value as he will likely get more scoring chances playing forward and he will still be able to be used as a defenceman. However he as had a hard time staying healthy so he is always an injury risk.

Burns out at least the next two games, but McLellan does not rule out Havlat or Wingels for tomorrow against Colorado. #sjsharks

The often injured Burns left Saturday's game after only playing 2:07 and did not return. The injury is a lower-body injury and it is not known how much time he will miss. We do know he will not be in the lineup in the Sharks next two games. Burns has zero points and is a -5 in 6 games this season.

Sharks defenseman Brent Burns is skating again, but did not offer a timeline as to when he could return to the lineup.

Burns continues to rehab, but when he will be back on the ice is unknown. The Sharks are on a tear right now so I don't foresee them rushing Burns back and risk him re-injuring himself. For now just monitor his status going forward, and pick him up accordingly if he is still available.
