One of the highlights of ever September in the NHL has become the day we see Sharks defenseman forward Brent Burns' latest headshot. He has taken a gradual transformation every year until last season when he looked like Grizzly Adams' hairier, more unkempt cousin.

That had people excited; where would the evolution of Brent Burns take us this year? Could he possibly top continue the trend and become the next teen wolf or wookie?

Maybe he could have but he didn't. Instead, Burns did a little housekeeping with the help of a knot.

Here's a shot from a side angle from the Sharks.

Wow, is this even the same guy? Now he looks positively like a ninja or Jedi, not a drifter. But really man, that's a lot of hair.
