Adam Burish has back surgery
Executive vice president and general manager Doug Wilson said Dr. Robert Watkins performed the surgery in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The 30-year-old Burish is on injured reserve and hasn't played this season because of a disk problem.
The Sharks have not set a timetable for Burish's return to the ice.
