On Sunday afternoon, the San Jose Sharks came to terms on a four-year contract with Adam Burish that will pay the gritty winger $1.8 million per year. Burish played the last two seasons with the Dallas Stars, who he signed a two-year, $1.15 contract with in 2010.
San Jose will be Burish's third stop in the NHL after spending four years in Chicago with the Blackhawks prior to going to Dallas. The 29-year-old forward was a member of the Blackhawks team that won the Stanley Cup over the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010.
