Through 21 games this season Braun has six points, 26 hits, and 36 blocks, which should not inspire a roster spot on your squad unless you're in a very deep pool.

Justin Braun's upper-body injury is a hand injury.

Braun was hurt when he blocked a shot from New Jersey's Mike Cammalleri on Jan. 19 and is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks as a result. "Saw the shot from the point and tried to punch it away," Braun recalled. "I knew it was bad at that point. Eventually I dropped my stick. I tried to poke-check Marty [Havlat] and [the stick] just popped out of my hand. At that point, I pretty much knew something was pretty bad." He has a goal and 19 points in 47 games this season.

Braun was hurt early in the second period. He has a goal and 19 points in 47 games in 2014-15. The exact nature or severity of his injury isn't known, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan made it sound like this isn't a short-term problem.

Justin Braun had two assists in San Jose's 3-1 win over Toronto on Thursday night.

It's tough to say that Braun really deserved his two tallies, but that's hockey's secondary assist award system for you. He simply wasn't a key component to the goals. Regardless, through 45 games he now has 16 assists and 17 points on the season, tying his career single-season high in points that he set last year in 82 games.
