Insight: Burns has scored five goals in his last eight games after failing to get one from Jan. 7 to March 2. He has a career-high 19 goals with 18 assists, 26 PIM, 202 SOG and a +26 in 57 games this season.
 
Cold3/5/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: Sharks right wing Brent Burns scored his first goal since Jan. 5 Tuesday against the Hurricanes.
Insight: Burns only has eight points in his last 24 games, bringing him to 31 points in 50 games this season. With 177 SOG and a +22 rating he's still a fantasy option, especially if he has blue-line eligibility in your league.

Insight: Burns has 14 goals, 14 assists, 125 SOG and a +22 in 35 games, and if you're lucky, he's still eligible on defense in your league.

Insight: Burns hasn't played since taking a stick to the mouth on Oct. 19. He has been practicing for a couple of weeks and is finally ready to play. Burns had four goals and eight points in the first eight games and should be owned in all leagues.

11/8/2013 10:12:00 PM
Description: San Jose Sharks forward Brent Burns (upper body) has been on the ice with his teammates for four straight days, according to csnbayarea.com. However, coach Todd McLellan wouldn't say if Burns will be available for San Jose's upcoming five-game road trip.
Insight: Burns was hit in the mouth by a stick on Oct. 19 and has missed eight straight games. The team has been very tight-lipped about his injury. "He's progressing," McLellan said. "Today's practice was a man’s practice, and he participated fully in it. That's a good step for him."
 
11/6/2013 7:26:00 PM

Hot3/28/2013 1:23:00 PM
Description: San Jose Sharks F/D Brent Burns has four goals and five assists in eight games since returning from a leg injury.
Insight: Burns has been getting playing time at forward in 5-on-5 situations and defenseman on the power play, which gives him fantastic fantasy value as a blueliner.
 
3/12/2013 4:27:00 PM
Description: San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns (leg) is expected to return to action Tuesday after missing the past seven games, but he will skate at forward, not defense, according to the San Jose Mercury News' David Pollak.
Insight: Burns, who has only played six games this season and is still in search of his first point, also will play some defense on the power play. Since he's still eligible at defenseman, this could vastly improve his fantasy value if he gets more scoring chances.
 
2/26/2013 12:06:00 PM
Description: San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns, who left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, will miss Tuesday's game against Colorado and likely one more.
Insight: Burns has only played six games this season and hasn't recorded his first point yet. He had 37 points and 201 SOG in 81 games with the Sharks last season so there's reason to believe he'll return to fantasy-worthy production if he can stay healthy.

Description: San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury and didn't return. SOURCE: San Jose Mercury News
Insight: Burns has only played six games this season and hasn't recorded his first point yet. He had 37 points and 201 SOG in 81 games with the Sharks last season so there's reason to believe he'll return to fantasy-worthy production if he can stay healthy.
 
1/22/2013 11:10:00 AM
Description: San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Edmonton with a lower body injury.
Insight: Burns posted 37 points last season on 11 goals and 26 assists after 46 points in the previous season with Minnesota. He's a top-scoring defenseman with plenty of fantasy value when healthy.
 
1/15/2013 12:15:00 PM
Description: San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns is questionable for Sunday's game against Calgary with a lower body injury. He missed Sunday's practice.
Insight: Burns posted 37 points last season on 11 goals and 26 assists after 46 points in the previous season with Minnesota. He's a top-scoring defenseman with plenty of fantasy value when healthy.
 
8/1/2011 8:51:00 PM
Description: The San Jose Sharks have signed Brent Burns to a five-year extension worth $28.8 million. TSN
Insight: Burns was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Minnesota Wild earlier this offseason. He is the large, two-way defenseman the Sharks seem to need, and his fantasy value should only improve with the Sharks.
 
6/25/2011 1:15:00 AM
Description: The San Jose Sharks traded Devin Setoguchi, Charlie Coyle, and the 28th overall pick in the draft (Zack Phillips) to the Minnesota Wild for Brent Burns and a second-round pick in 2012. TSN
Insight: Burns had one year remaining on his contract, and it appeared that his price tag going into free agency was going to be costly for the Wild. He will provide not only blueline scoring for the Sharks, but also a much-needed physical presence on defense that seemed to be the Sharks' downfall during this season's playoffs. His plus/minus should also improve with the move, making him a more appealing option in fantasy leagues this coming season.
