BRENT BURNS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Sharks explain decision to move Brent Burns back to defense

Brent Burns is a defenseman once again. After being used as a forward for the last year and a half, Burns is sliding back to his original role on defense heading into the 2014-15 season. The Sharks recently explained the move, stating that Burns was originally brought in as a defenseman and he’ll be a tremendous asset for the team when he’s patrolling the blue line. San Jose...

Sharks explain moving Burns back to the blueline

The San Jose Sharks made a lot of debatable statements this offseason, but they didn’t really blow things up like some feared (and others requested). One significant move involved a tweak from within, as the organization decided to move Brent Burns back to defense. GM Doug Wilson explained the logic to the Sharks website on Friday. We acquired him in a trade to be a stud defenseman...

Brent Burns to Miss Game With Sore Gums After Taking Puck to Relatively Toothless Mouth

Brent Burns sounds like he’s going to miss a game with one of the hockey-est injuries in a long time. The San Jose Sharks forward is expected to miss Monday night’s game against the Detroit Red Wings after taking a puck to the mouth on Saturday against the Calgary Flames. A puck to the face is nothing new for hockey players, and it usually means a lost tooth or two. That wasn’t...

Brent Burns Losing Mountain-Man Look for Charity, Will Get Buzz Cut and Shave to Raise Money for Two Foundations

The San Jose Sharks are losing one grizzly-looking forward, and getting a clean-shaven one in return. Brent Burns has announced that he will lose the caveman look this season for a good cause — a couple of good causes, actually. According to the Sharks, on Nov. 1, Burns will ditch his shaggy hair and unkempt beard to raise money for Defending the Blue Line, a charity that provides...

If the sneak peek above of Burns’ recent photo session is any indication, this season’s version will prove to be just as enjoyable. Actually, let’s cut […]The post San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns takes another...

Sharks defenseman Brent Burns takes awesome team photo

The Sharks kick off training camp Thursday, which made Wednesday picture day, which means more magical adventures with Brent Burns and Brent Burns’ hair. How can we forget Burns’ horrifying/amazing team photo last season in which he looked like he had a dead grizzly bear on his face and had just woken up three minutes prior. It was awesome. And it also shed light on the glorious...

Sharks' Burns makes odd discovery

San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns was golfing Sunday when he came across this on the course: Found this on the course... Any ideas what it could be? pic.twitter.com/SQc7QZUdxU -- Brent Burns (@Burnzie88) August 19, 2013 He doesn't know what the hell it is, and I sure don't know what the hell it is, but that doesn't mean we can't guess. The obvious joke is...

Sharks defenseman Brent Burns may actually be the Missing Link

The NHL lockout seems to have affected some players more deeply than others, both emotionally and financially, as it appears Sharks defenseman Brent Burns ran out of money to buy the necessities like razors, shaving cream, and a comb before the Sharks official team photoshoot. Either that or Burns is trying to make 2013 the year of the Cro-Magnon surfer dude, which I can totally...

Sharks D Brent Burns might have lived under a bridge during the lockout (photo)

Good Lord, man! Someone in the San Jose Sharks organization needs to get defenseman Brent Burns an appointment with a barber. Or get him a hot shower. Or at the very least, a rag on a stick, for Pete’s sake! Obviously, Brent Burns was letting it all hang out during the lockout, as evidence by his disheveled appearance in his team photo. Look at the unkempt hair, the out-of-control...

LOOKING SCRUFFY

Official team photo of Brent Burns is fantastic

The homeless-looking man you see in that picture is Sharks defenseman Brent Burns. Some players might come into camp out of shape or overweight after having no hockey action for over six months. That’s going to be the case for a bunch of guys this season. But it might be safe to say no other player will be reuniting with his team with a hibernating bear on his face like Burns...
