The 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Nashville on Jan. 31 is less than a week away. In the lead-up to All-Star Weekend at Bridgestone Arena, NHL.com sat down with a host of this season's participants to talk about playing in the game. In this edition, defenseman Brent Burns discusses representing the San Jose Sharks in the All-Star Game.
1. What does being an All-Star mean to you personally?
It's a huge honor. I've said it before, to represent your team and the League at an event like this, it's always great.
2. What is your favorite memory from previous All-Star Games?
For me, I think it's the special moment I've had with my kids on the ice, both of them. In Carolina with my daughter, last year in Columbus, my daughter and my son. I think these events are really just great things for the family, to get the cool picture out there with my kids. My kids are getting to the age where they know it's a pretty cool event. It's just great. To have my dad and my father-in-law there. It's just really fun.
