Sharks forward Bracken Kearns has been placed on waivers.

Kearns, 32, has three goals and one assist for four points and six penalty minutes in 22 games with the Sharks this season. The forward will likely be reassigned to Worcester if he clears.

Raffi Torres (right knee surgery) and Logan Couture (right hand) are both expected to be activated from long term injured reserve in time for the Sharks’ next game in Philadelphia on Feb. 27. There was simply no room for Kearns.
