The San Jose Sharks announced Monday that the club has recalled forward Bracken Kearns from the Worcester Sharks, the team's top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.
At the time of his recall, Kearns was leading Worcester in scoring among active players with 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) and 63 penalty minutes in 50 games. Current Sharks forward Tim Kennedy leads all Worcester players this season in scoring with 37 points.
