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.

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.

Four Points In Two Games For Sharks' Burns

News: Brent Burns had his second consecutive two-point night Thursday against Anaheim, scoring a goal on seven shots, handing out an assist and going plus-2.
Analysis: The goal was his 20th of the year -- the first time in his career that the converted defenseman has reached that mark. Things have generally been far brighter for Brent Burns so far in March than they were in January and February. In the first two months of 2014, he managed just seven points in 21 games; this month, Burns has nine points (six of them goals) in 10 contests.

Burns Registers Another Point For Sharks

News: Brent Burns had an assist and three shots in Friday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Brent Burns, back on the top line, has pulled out of his slump nicely and is getting some solid minutes on the team's second power play unit. He can once again be counted on for some offensive production and a decent pile of shots. With only 55 games played, he ranks 27th in the league in shots.

SJ's Burns Snaps Slump

News: Brent Burns had an assist and five shots in Monday's loss to Philadelphia. That snaps a slump of six games for Burns.
Analysis: Brent Burns snaps the point slump, but he still hasn't scored a goal in 14 games. That's the longest he's gone (when healthy) without scoring since before being moved to forward last season. Things will improve, but it may take the Olympic break for Burns to find his game again.

Burns Struggles Continue In San Jose

News: Brent Burns registered seven shots in 23:31 of ice time during Saturday's win over Chicago. However, he didn't record a point, stretching his point slump to six games.
Analysis: Not only has Brent Burns not put up a point in six games he hasn't scored in 13. This is tough for everyone since Burns has basically been on fire (when he's not injured) since moving to forward last season. Oddly, he's playing well outside of the point slump. He's logging a lot of minutes and has taken 20 shots in the last three games. A turnaround is just around the corner.

Sharks' Burns Takes Eight Shots Wednesday

News: Brent Burns registered a game-high eight shots on goal in Wednesday's loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: Despite all of the Sharks' offensive chances, they were unable to crack Oilers goalie Ben Scrivens, as he completed a franchise record 59-save shutout. Brent Burns now has 14 goals and 15 assists in 41 games this season, to go along with a plus-21 rating.

Sharks Move Burns To Second Line

News: Brent Burns will start Monday's game where he finished Saturday's, on the second line with Patrick Marleau and Tommy Wingels, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area.
Analysis: This doesn't lower Brent Burns' potential significantly. While the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski has been on fire, he's still playing with top notch line and shouldn't see a reduction in playing time.

Brent Burns

Burns Nabs Assist In Sharks' Win

News: Brent Burns had an assist and a plus-1 rating in a win over Calgary on Monday.
Analysis: Brent Burns has 14 goals and 15 assists in 37 games this season. He's developed into a consistent offensive force who can produce on any given night. Injury aside, it's been a great season for the winger-turned-defenseman-turned-winger.

Brent Burns

Two Assists For Sharks' Burns

News: Brent Burns handed out two assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-0 win over Florida.
Analysis: He'd been on a bit of a cold stretch recently, with just one point in four games entering Thursday's action, but you can't keep Brent Burns down for long. He should be a fixture in fantasy lineups as long as he's healthy.

Brent Burns

Burns Plus-3 As Sharks Crush Red Wings

News: Brent Burns had an assist, four shots, and a plus-3 rating in a 4-1 win over Detroit on Thursday.
Analysis: Moving Brent Burns to forward continues to be a feather in the cap of coach Todd McLellan. In 32 games this season Burns has 26 points and a plus-20 rating. If he wasn't doing enough already, the new look first line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski is incredible to watch. Play him as much as you can while that line remains in tact. It won't last forever.
