Injured Sharks’ winger to remain out of lineup for at least another week

Rudolfs Balcers will not join the Sharks on their road trip as he remains at least another week or two away from being able to return from a lower body injury, coach Bob Boughner said Sunday prior to his team’s game with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Boughner had suggested last month that Balcers could be activated from injured reserve some time on this Sharks’ road trip, which continues this week with games in Detroit, Buffalo and Philadelphia.
