Mike Brown RW SAN 9 Days

Brown (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The move doesn't come as much of a surprise after coach Todd McLellan announced after Tuesday's game that Brown would be "out for a while." The Sharks haven't indicated specifically how much time Brown will miss, but the IR placement ensures that it will be at least seven days, and most likely, well beyond that.

Brown suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's win over the Oilers, with coach Todd McLellan saying after the game that the winger would be "out for a while," Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

Brown needed assistance off the ice after laying a hit on the Oilers' Matt Hendricks, as it didn't look like he was capable of putting much weight on his right leg. The Sharks should have a more formal update on the fourth-liner's status Wednesday, but it looks like he could be headed for his second trip to injured reserve. He has suited up for just eight games this season.

Brown has been sidelined since mid-October with the hand injury, but his presence at practice would make it seem that he's nearing the end of his recovery timetable. He'd likely fill a role in the Sharks' bottom six once he's activated from injured reserve.

Brown (hand) appears set to miss multiple games, CSNBayArea.com reports.

The Sharks haven't provided word on the extent of the left hand injury Brown suffered Saturday night, but it looks like the team will at least give him a few extra days of rest before determining whether or not he'll require a stay on injured reserve. John Scott will take his spot in the lineup for the foreseeable future.
