Brent Burns D SAN Feb 08 '13
Brent Burns (lower body) could make his season debut as early as Saturday, according to coach Todd McLellan.
Burns was paired with D Brad Stuart in practice Friday, leading us to think optimistically about Burns' chances to play Saturday. If that's the case, the Sharks would have to clear a roster spot before tomorrow night and activate Burns from injured reserve. We'll update you as soon as we know more, but it sounds like Burns is very close.
