Deep Blue Sea: Sharks send down a trio, Burns plays at forward

New, comments

And people are still injured!

Our beloved Sharks are still battered and broken, but the good news is that things apparently could have been worse for Tomas Hertl. He’s day-to-day with an injury to his right hand and likely will not be in the line up against the Vancouver Canucks tonight.

Which begs the question — who is going to be in the line up against Vancouver tonight? With a growing list of injuries on this team, it’s impossible to tell, especially with the choices in roster moves being made.

Tim Heed, Danny O’Regan, and Brandon Mashinter were all sent down to the Barracuda yesterday morning. Marcus Sorensen was sent down last week and injured in a game with the ‘Cuda on Wednesday, but DeBoer said he was “good to go,” so he may get the nod to be called up tonight on place of O’Regan. Mashinter and Heed were both scratches against Arizona.

The trio sent down yesterday morning played against the Tuscon Roadrunners last night. O’Regan earned an assist, Heed notched two assists and one minor penalty, and Mashinter earned a double minor penalty (he also served two bench minors for too many men on the ice).

With few options left, could we once again see Burns playing shifts at forward? DeBoer says it’s possible, but probably not.
