  • Sharks' Brent Burns: Wins first Norris Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Burns led all defensemen with 76 points and 320 shots on goal to claim the Norris Trophy as the league's top defenseman.

    This is the first Norris win for Burns, who fell one goal shy of scoring 30 and finished with 75-plus points for the second straight season. Although his defensive-zone play isn't his strongest suit, Burns was vital to the Sharks' transition offense, which would've ranked far lower than 19th if not for him. Often deployed as a rover and masquerading as a fourth forward on the ice, Burns took 320 shots, the third-highest total by a defenseman in the cap era, and also managed to register the highest Corsi percentage among the three nominees. Given his propensity to shoot the puck and the significant role he plays on offense, Burns is a top-three fantasy option for the foreseeable future.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Three power-play helpers in blowout win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/19/17) Burns dished out three power-play assists and added a game-high five shots on goal in Tuesday's 7-0 Game 4 win over Edmonton.

    The Oilers had done a terrific job of containing the offensive-minded blueliner en route to a 2-1 series lead, but their game plan failed to account for eight trips to the penalty box. Burns still hasn't lit the lamp despite putting 18 pucks on net through four games, but his 9.1 percent shooting percentage during a 29-goal regular season suggests he's due.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Reaches 75 points again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/7/17) Burns scored his 29th goal in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Edmonton.

    Burns has points in consecutive contests after managing just one goal and two assists in his previous 13 games. The bearded blueliner leads the league with 315 shots and will be motivated to light the lamp in Saturday's finale against Calgary to reach 30 goals for the first time. Even if he's held off the scoresheet in that one, consecutive 75-point seasons are still an amazing feat for any defenseman.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Three points in last 13 games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/17) Burns has been cold recently, managing just one goal and two assists over his last 13 games.

    The stud blueliner has continued to throw a boatload of rubber on net during that span (50 SOG), but has failed to impress with a lack of goals and minus-8 rating. What's worse, Burns has only found twine once in the last 20 games, which has him stuck on 28 tallies despite his early goal-scoring tear. Still, the 2003 first-rounder has had a wildly successful campaign with 73 points in 79 games, and needs just two more to tie hie career high from a season ago.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Posts three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/10/17) Burns racked up a trio of assists in Thursday's 4-2 win over the visiting Capitals.

    After an uncharacteristic two-game absence from the scoresheet, Burns beasted out for three apples against Braden Holtby in this one. Not much more needs to be said about the superstar defenseman at this point; his 70 points lead all rearguards and put him in a five-way tie for second most in the NHL, he leads the league in shots on goal (260), and has a similarly eye-popping plus-24 rating. #FantasyGold
