Bio

Brent Burns Bio

The versatility that allowed Burns to play forward or defense helped him fashion an NHL career, but the decision by the San Jose Sharks to have him focus on playing defense turned him into a force on the ice.

Born in Barrie, Ontario, Burns spent the 2002-03 season with Brampton of the Ontario Hockey League before making the Minnesota Wild roster in 2003-04. He made his NHL debut Oct. 8, 2003, against the Chicago Blackhawks, and in his third NHL game, four days later against the Sharks, Burns scored his first NHL goal.
