Elbow Infection Sidelines Braun
On Saturday, the San Jose Sharks placed defenseman Justin Braun on the Injured Reserve after already missing a game this week, thus missing Saturday night's game against Calgary, as he is dealing with an infection in his elbow.
With placement on the IR, Braun will then miss at least one more game, which is Tuesday's contest against the Penguins, but there is no mention of any real timetable for his return. He'll likely be on antibiotics and they'll wait for it to clear up.
In 21 games played this season, Braun has picked up 6 assists and 12 PIM this season, ranking 380th in pool scoring, to date.
For Dale C., his team sits in a state of limbo heading into the Waiver Draft, as his team is in the middle of the pack, not too far out of the money for a good pick to help him out, but he is also in the midst of the PIM pool too, which makes his decision interesting going in. Braun is a part of a disappointing blueline on his team, one that ranks 25th in scoring, with only 22 total points.
