Brent Burns has the capacity to cheer people up with a simple stroke of a pen.

The free-spirited defenseman of the San Jose Sharks made a fan's night by signing her jersey after the warmup for the Sharks game against the Minnesota Wild.

Maybe it was the fact the Sharks were playing in Minnesota, or maybe Burns is just a downright nice guy, but he stopped on his way back to the locker room to greet some Sharks fans, then took the girl's jersey and autographed the back of it.

The girl's reaction, where she jumped up and down and was even moved to tears of joy, was priceless.
