Adam Burish has missed the Sharks' entire series against the Kings with a broken hand, but he is "very close" to returning, head coach Todd McLellan announced Friday. It's possible that he suits up for San Jose in its elimination Game 6.

Burish, 30, had three points for the Sharks in 46 games this year, but his veteran presence would help bulk up McLellan's options at forward, which have been limited. Raffi Torres was suspended for the entire series after his hit on Jarret Stoll in Game 1 and Martin Havlat attempted return from injury sent him back to the trainers.
