As hockey players are wont to do in the offseason, Sharks defenseman/forward/grizzly bear Brent Burns went for a round of 18 holes recently. While most golfers come back with a few snowmen on their cards, a dozen less balls and a broken putter head, Burns hit the 19th hole with something completely different.

He came back with this, whatever the heck this is.

At least he didn't injure a finger, so there's that.

I'm not a paleontologist and won't pretend to be (side note; it might be a wild boar jaw), all I know is that's pretty gnarly.

Considering Burns had a striking resemblance to a Neanderthal before last season, maybe the pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together.
