Burish cleared waivers on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

The Sharks will now buyout the rest of the veteran winger's contract, meaning he'll become an unrestricted free agent. The move hardly comes as a surprise, as the 32-year-old struggled to maintain his spot on the Shark's roster this year, only suiting up for 20 games with the NHL club. At this point in time it isn't clear whether any NHL team will be willing to take a flyer on the aging forward. Burish very well may have played his last game in the NHL.

The Sharks have loaned Burish the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.

The move brings Burish closer to his off-season home and indicates that there's next to no chance that we'll see Burish in the NHL again this season. The Sharks have no intention of using him.

Burish officially cleared waivers on Sunday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

Burish had a terrible start to the season scoring just one goal and two assists in 20 games. Burish will likely report to AHL Worcester and remain there for the rest of the season unless San Jose suffers any injuries.

Burish was placed on waivers by the Sharks on Saturday, Ren Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Burish's dismissal likely signals that the Sharks are just about ready to welcome Mike Brown (hand) back from injured reserve. Once Burish clears waivers, he's expected to be assigned to AHL Worcester, where he'll serve as organizational fourth-line depth.

Burish will be a scratch for the Sharks on Thursday against the Lightning, according to the Mercury News' Curtis Pashelka.

Burish, though he has had limited ice time and was on the cusp of relevance in limited time last season, has been a fixture in the Sharks lineup this season, playing all 17 games so far. However, he hasn't been very productive, tallying only a goal and two assists through those 17 games.

Burish was handed 16 PIM in Sunday's win over Anaheim.

The four-liner played a big part in a nasty affair Sunday that saw the two teams combine for 156 PIM. Burish has a goal and an assist in 10 games this season, but sees limited minutes and no power-play time, meaning he won't be very valuable to your fantasy team. Unless your league revolves around PIM, Burish won't do you much good, as there are probably better options out there.

Burish opened the scoring Thursday in a loss to the Jackets with his first goal since March 5, 2013.

Limited to just 15 games last season, Burish didn't record a single point, so we have to go all the way back to March of the season before to find his last goal. On the bright side, with two points in eight games this year, Burish is on pace to blow away the three points he posted over 61 games spanning the last two seasons.

Adam Burish (hand) isn't expected to play again during the regular season, but he could return during the playoffs.

He underwent surgery Wednesday to insert two pins in two fingers in his left hand after he blocked a shot against Edmonton on Tuesday. Burish missed the start of the 2013-14 campaign because of a procedure on his back, so he's been limited to just 15 games this year.

Adam Burish had a procedure done on his hand after suffering a gruesome injury while blocking a shot on Tuesday.

Burish isn't expected to be available anytime soon, but beyond that the Sharks haven't provided many details about his status. He had already missed most of the 2013-14 campaign due to a back injury he sustained during the preseason.

Adam Burish suffered a gruesome hand injury while blocking a shot on Tuesday.

Burish immediately left the game as a result. There wasn't a timetable made immediately available for his return, but it wouldn't be surprising if he ended up being sidelined for quite some time.
