Sharks' Burns On Modest Streak

News: Brent Burns scored a power-play goal during Thursday's win over the Wild and now has a point in three straight games.
Analysis: It's not a huge hot streak, but it continues what's been a fairly steady campaign for Brent Burns in terms of the scoresheet, as he's got 24 points in 31 games. That puts him on a 63-point pace, so if he can stay healthy and keep it up, he'll blow by last year's career-high 48 points. However, his minus-5 rating on the year could certainly use some course correction.

Burns Assists On Sharks' Only Goal

News: Brent Burns had an assist in 24:33 of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Flames.
Analysis: Even when there isn't much offense to go around, Brent Burns is getting involved. So even if your league doesn't score caveman beards or pizzas eaten, Burns is an elite defenseman.

Sharks Won't Move Burns To Forward

News: Despite speculation that Brent Burns might be best used back at forward, as he was last year, the team says there's "zero percent" chance of him moving to forward, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: Brent Burns is far from being unproductive and is a great roster grab on defense, but he's not quite at the amazing pace he was on last season. The change of his availability from forward to defense makes him valuable no matter what in almost all formats.

Sharks' Burns Assists Twice In Win

News: Brent Burns picked up two assists in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: The offensive contributions were a total team effort, as Brent Burns was one of eight Sharks skaters to finish with multi-point games. The two-helper performance ended a three-game scoring drought for Burns, who continues to adapt well to the move back to the blue line. He ranks in a three-way tie for second place in defenseman scoring with 21 points.

Brent Burns

Burns Scores Lone Sharks Goal In Loss

News: Brent Burns tallied the only Sharks goal in Tuesday's loss to the Sabres.
Analysis: Brent Burns now has seven goals on the season, along with 11 assists. He's showing no signs of slowing down. He's a top fantasy defenseman this year.

Burns Grabs Another Point For Sharks

News: Brent Burns added an assist and four shots in Thursday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Brent Burns has four points in his last four games, sits with six goals and 11 assists for 17 points (13th in the NHL), and has taken 58 shots (13th in the NHL). Burns is becoming an elite fantasy defenseman.

Sharks' Burns Scores Twice In WIn

News: Brent Burns picked up his fifth and sixth goals of the season in Saturday's win over Dallas.
Analysis: Brent Burns is now second among all NHL defensemen with 15 points in 15 games. The 29-year-old hasn't missed a beat since being moved back to the blueline, averaging 23:01 of ice time and firing 49 shots on goal. With the offense up front, there is no reason Burns can't keep producing at a consistent level. What a stud.

Brent Burns, LW, SJ Burns Has Goals In Three Straight For Sharks

Brent Burns

Burns Has Goals In Three Straight For Sharks

News: Brent Burns had a goal, five shots, four penalty minutes, and 22:44 in ice time Tuesday, as the Sharks beat the Avalanche in a shootout.
Analysis: That's goals in three straight for Brent Burns and points in five straight. He's only fallen under 20 minutes of ice time once, has racked up 18 penalty minutes, taken 36 shots (tenth best in the NHL), and leads all defensemen in points with four goals and eight assists. It's good to be a Burns owner.

Sharks' Burns Scores Lone Goal In Loss

News: Brent Burns potted his second goal of the season in Saturday afternoon's 2-1 home loss to the Sabres. It was an unassisted tally.
Analysis: Brent Burns finally got the Sharks on the board in the third period against the lowly Sabres, but it wasn't enough as Buffalo needed just 15 shots on goal to upset San Jose in the matinee. The defenseman now has a scorching hot nine points in nine games this season -- which is phenomenal -- but he's not likely to sustain this pace long term from the back end. Enjoy the ride while it lasts and don't be afraid to entertain trade offers if the opportunity arises -- you might be able to fetch yourself a solid return.

Sharks' Burns Dishes Out One In Defeat

News: Brent Burns recorded an assist and attempted six shots on goal in Tuesday's loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: The move to defense has done nothing to deter Brent Burns' fantasy production -- in fact, he may be more valuable than ever. He's already piled up a goal and seven assists in seven games, and is on pace to crush last season's totals in penalty minutes and blocked shots. He's certainly not expected to continue his point-per-game production, but Burns could quite possibly finish the season as a top-tier fantasy defenseman.

Brent Burns

Sharks' Burns Pots First

News: Brent Burns scored his first goal of the year Thursday in a shootout loss to the Islanders. He added a power-play assist, two PIM and a plus-1 rating.
Analysis: That's a four-game point streak for Brent Burns to open the year, and he's filling the sheet in plenty of other categories too -- plus-minus, PIM, hits, blocked shots. Roll him out and enjoy.

Three-Game Point Streak For Sharks' Burns

News: Brent Burns had an assist and a shot through 23:43 of ice time in Tuesday's win over Washington.
Analysis: Despite the move back to defense, Brent Burns has a point in all three games this season, totaling four assists. The Caveman is an offensive threat at any position.

Sharks' Burns Grabs Pair Of Helpers Wednesday

News: Brent Burns picked up two assists in the second period of Wednesday's opening-night 4-0 shutout of the Kings.
Analysis: Brent Burns grabbed the primary assist on goals by Patrick Marleau and Tommy Wingels. Owners who drafted him as a defenseman (where he will play for the foreseeable future) were treated to a productive game in this one. It's a good thing that leagues don't count giveaways, though, as his five cough-ups were a game-high.

SJ's Burns Solid In Return To Blue Line

News: Brent Burns had a goal, three shots, a hit, four blocked shots, and 26:39 of playing time in one of the Sharks' split-squad preseason games against the Canucks on Tuesday.
Analysis: Brent Burns did it all and showed why he'll be a highly sought after d-man in fantasy this season. He's scoring, playing defense, and likely to log a ton of minutes. Preseason games are a little meaningless and it's dangerous to take too much from them, but Burns certainly showed why he's one of the most exciting defensemen in fantasy this season.

Sharks' Burns Moves Back To Defense

News: Brent Burns will move back to defense for the 2014-15 season, CSN's Brodie Brazil reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle will not return next season, so there's an opening, and Brent Burns will be asked to fill it. He had a career year in 2013-14, notching career highs in goals, points and shots, but to nobody's surprise, he'll move off the forward position and back to defense.

Burns Without A Point In Last Four Sharks' Losses

News: Brent Burns, who scored two goals and an assist in the opening three games of Round 1, came up empty in the final four games as the Sharks lost to the Kings in seven.
Analysis: Brent Burns had an outstanding year, setting career-high marks in goals (22), points (48), and shots (245, which was 22nd best in the league) in his first full season as a forward. His draft position should be higher in 2013-14 than this year. He is on the rise and unlikely to be returning to defense any time soon.

Burns Leads Sharks In Shots, Comes Up Empty

News: Brent Burns led the team with five shots, but came up without a point against the Kings on Monday.
Analysis: Brent Burns was held without a point for the third straight game and has a minus-1 rating in the last five straight games. While he hasn't garnered a point since Game 3, his 27 shots are second-best in the league this postseason.

Burns Opens The Scoring For Sharks In Game 3

News: Brent Burns had a goal, two penalty minutes, eight hits, and a team-leading seven shots in Game 3.
Analysis: Brent Burns' 16 postseason shots ranks third in the league. He's creating opportunities and is likely to continue to produce. He has two goals and an assist through the first three games.

SJ's Burns Adds Assist To Cap Career Year

News: Brent Burns had an assist in Saturday's season finale against the Coyotes.
Analysis: That caps off a career year for Brent Burns, who finished with career high totals in goals (22), points (48), plus/minus (plus-26), and shots (245). He's likely a forward for good and expectations for next season should be adjusted. He'll be looking to buck a history of mild playoff performances this coming week.

Sharks' Burns Scores, Pushing Streak To Five

News: Brent Burns scored his 23rd goal on a power play in Thursday's 2-1 win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: He's on a five-game point streak now, with a shiny seven points (three goals, four assists) in that span. Six of those points have come on the power play, and as a result Brent Burns is actually minus-3 over that stretch.

Multi-Point Night For Sharks' Burns

News: Brent Burns recorded two assists and four shots in a 5-2 win over the Oilers on Tuesday.
