It's not difficult to spot Brent Burns. It is even easier when he is wearing a kimono.

The San Jose Sharks defenseman and his 8-year-old daughter, Peyton, attended a father-daughter dance recently and shared some photos on Instagram.

"It's always fun to try to do stuff like that as much as you can," Burns told NHL.com. "Obviously, you're on the road a lot with games, but it worked out."

The theme of the dance was "Around the World," which is why the Burns sported the traditional Japanese garment to it. He and Peyton got the kimonos on one of their annual summer trips in the family RV.

"We got the kimonos from Disney World," Burns said. "It was fun."

No official word on if they got the clothing on the same trip where Burns was mistaken for a pirate and didn't bother correcting anyone.
