"I wouldn't be surprised if they moved him back to forward," Marleau told CSN Bay Area. "He can play any position. That says a lot about him, but I think that's a great tool for this organization to use, wherever they need to fill a hole."
Burns played his first full season as a forward in 2013-14 after being moved there from defense. He finished with 22 goals and 26 assists for a career high 48 points in 69 games.
