Bracken Kearns has been placed on waivers by San Jose.

The Sharks need to clear up space for the pending returns of injured forwards Logan Couture and Raffi Torres. Kearns, who has three goals and one assist in 22 games with San Jose this campaign, is expected to be sent to the minors if he clears.
Feb 24 - 5:36 PM

Bracken Kearns has found the back of the net in three straight games.

That's one way to make your presence felt after being called up. Kearns is a 32-year-old forward that has been great in the AHL, but never established himself in the NHL. We still don't think he'll end up earning a permanent spot with the Sharks despite his recent outburst, although certainly he's been making a strong case for himself.
Jan 3 - 10:44 AM

The 32-year-old has five goals, 18 points and 57 penalty minutes this season with the Worcester Sharks. He has played in seven NHL games in his career, going pointless with ten penalty minutes.

The San Jose Sharks waived winger Bracken Kearns on Sunday.

He 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.

Bracken Kearns has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the San Jose Sharks.

Kearns had 21 goals and 46 points in 66 games with the AHL Worcester Sharks last season. He's an organizational depth player that might get the occasional stint with San Jose, but he won't play nearly enough to warrant owning in even deep fantasy leagues.

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

Kearns and Tim Kennedy both took turns skating in the spot normally held by Adam Burish, who is likely out of the entire second-round series with an upper-body injury. Kearns left Tuesday's morning skate well before Kennedy, which is usually a sign that Kearns will be in the lineup at gametime.
Tue, May 14, 2013 04:56:00 PM

Bracken Kearns has been sent down to the AHL.

Kearns has 30 points and 63 penalty minutes in 50 AHL contests in 2012-13. He's an organizational depth player and consequentially has no fantasy value.
Fri, Mar 8, 2013 04:38:00 PM

Bracken Kearns has been summoned from AHL Worcester.

He was the leading scorer among the team's active players at the time of his recall with 30 points, including 13 goals, and 63 penalty minutes in 50 games. Kearns played five games with Florida last season, but he hasn't suited for San Jose yet.
Mon, Mar 4, 2013 05:01:00 PM

Bracken Kearns signed a one-year deal with the Sharks.

The two-way contract is worth $550,000. The 31-year-old has played in five NHL games, and those came with the Panthers last season. With 22 goals and 30 assists, he had a pretty productive year in the AHL. It's hard to imagine him cracking the Sharks' lineup much next season.
