The NHL lockout seems to have affected some players more deeply than others, both emotionally and financially, as it appears Sharks defenseman Brent Burns ran out of money to buy the necessities like razors, shaving cream, and a comb before the Sharks official team photoshoot. Either that or Burns is trying to make 2013 the year of the Cro-Magnon surfer dude, which I can totally dig.
And to think, Brent Burns used to be such a sweet, wholesome looking young man, like the kind you’d find in a 90s boy band or playing one of DJ Tanner’s boyfriends on Full House. But like most things that grow hair, Brent Burns’ face has changed over the years, as Puck Daddy has so brilliantly documented with this definitive pictorial of the evolution of Brent Burns…
Missing link, Chewbacca, either way Brent Burns is one hairy mother…SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

The homeless-looking man you see in that picture is Sharks defenseman Brent Burns. Some players might come into camp out of shape or overweight after having no hockey action for over six months. That’s going to be the case for a bunch of guys this season. But it might be safe to say no other player will be reuniting with his team with a hibernating bear on his face like Burns...
Good Lord, man! Someone in the San Jose Sharks organization needs to get defenseman Brent Burns an appointment with a barber. Or get him a hot shower. Or at the very least, a rag on a stick, for Pete’s sake! Obviously, Brent Burns was letting it all hang out during the lockout, as evidence by his disheveled appearance in his team photo. Look at the unkempt hair, the out-of-control...
The San Jose Sharks are bringing back forward James Sheppard and defenseman Nick Petrecki on one-year contracts.
The Sharks announced both deals Friday, one day before the start of the NHL season.
Sheppard has played 34 games this season with Worcester of the AHL with eight goals and 15 assists.
In 224 career NHL games with Minnesota, Sheppard has 11 goals and 38 assists. He was...
The San Jose Sharks responded to their quickest playoff exit in a run of eight straight postseason appearances with tinkering instead of a roster overhaul.
There will be some changes on the third and fourth lines as the Sharks plan to take a look at some younger players and former first-round pick Brad Stuart is back on defense seven years after being traded away.
But the core...
Brent Burns has finally reported to Sharks camp after spending the lockout at Burning Man. He also restructured his contract with the Sharks to include a no trade clause, because he "totes loves it in the Bay Area, man". The clause isn't complete, allowing for trades to Vancouver, Colorado or "the moon, because that would be frickin' rad"

Around the middle of December, Jeremy Roenick apparently came out with some book about his existence. We aren't even sure if this already made the rounds during the lockout, but old friend @tawm23 directed us to a Reddit page that has a screenshot of the first paragraph of Roenick's new book:
SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed forward James Sheppard to a one-year contract. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.'
This season, Sheppard has played 34 games for Worcester, posting 23 points (eight goals, 15 assists) and 52 penalty minutes...
Tonight, the Rangers made a minor deal, sending AHLer Tommy Grant and a 2014 seventh-round draft choice to the San Jose Sharks for LW Brandon Mashinter.
Mashinter, 24, stands 6-foot-4, 230 lbs. He has posted two goals and three assists in 30 games this season with San Jose’s AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks. Last season, Mashinter tallied 16 goals and 17 assists in 65 games...
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired forward Brandon Mashinter from San Jose in exchange for forward Tommy Grant and a conditional pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Mashinter, 24, has registered two goals and three assists, along with 44 penalty minutes in 30 games [...]
The names of the players on the mostly final Sharks roster are out there by now. By association, the names of the players who were sent back down are also known to Sharks fans: John McCarthy, Bracken Kearns, Matt Pelech, and Matt Tennyson. The Worcester Sharks are playing right now. Listen in here.
Yesterday a Worcester player was sent down to the ECHL: Sacha Guimond. He had...

Hockey never left, but the NHL sure did. Now we suddenly find ourselves faced with 13 games on today's docket, not one of which features the Sharks. They start Sunday, just in time to conflict with the NFC Championship game features the 49ers. That won't have any impact on ratings at all!
Ok, so it's not ideal, but those of us who...
