FINside The Sharks: Brent Burns


As one of the newest members of the San Jose Sharks, Brent Burns has made a name for himself.  Since being traded from the Minnesota Wild before the start of the 2011-2012 season, we’ve fallen in love with this wild man.

Not only has he been known for his loud character, uncontrolled mouth, crazy hair and Harry Potter tattoo, but he has snakes. S N A K E S. Not on a plane, BUT IN HIS HOUSE.

How cool is that?

Okay time for all seriousness. After being drafted by the in 2003, Burns has played 506 games tallying 63 goals and 146 assists. Not the most outstanding numbers from a defenseman, however, his 274 hits in his 9 year career are.

In his time with the Sharks, Burns has scored 8 goals in 53 games played. Those 8 goals are most among Sharks defensemen.

Having spent the majority of his career in Minnesota, he became a fan favorite. Fans were displeased with the trade that sent him to San Jose in exchange for  Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi.

We hope to see more from Burns as the season goes on and hope that he stays in San Jose. :)
