Bracken Kearns gets waived by San Jose | 09/29/2013 8:19 PM
NewsThe San Jose Sharks waived winger Bracken Kearns on Sunday.
ImpactHe just signed with San Jose in late-July. He's played five games in his NHL career. It doesn't sound like he'll be much more than a spot starter for San Jose in 2013-14, if that.

NewsBracken Kearns has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the San Jose Sharks.
Renaud Lavoie on Twitter

NewsIt looks like Bracken Kearns will skate on the San Jose Sharks' fourth line in Tuesday's Game 1.
