  • Sharks' Brent Burns: Goals not coming despite massive shot totals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/16/18) Burns recorded a power-play assist and eight shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Toronto.

    Burns has no goals to show for the 26 pucks he's put on net in the past five games. After shooting just 3.6 percent last season, the career 7.0 percent shooter's converting at only 4.5 percent this season. Despite the poor luck, Burns is performing above a point-per-game pace with 22 points in 20 games. Few would have predicted Burns to have more than twice as many points as new teammate Erik Karlsson at this point.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Two assists, eight shots in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/18) Burns dished out two helpers to go with eight shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Dallas.

    Burns actually missed the net four times as well, so he could easily have cracked double digits in the shot department here. The offseason arrival of Erik Karlsson hasn't impacted Burns' status as the league's premier source of shots from the blue line. Despite lighting the lamp with only three of his 48 shots, Burns has contributed 20 points through 16 games. That production includes five assists over his current three-game point streak.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Registers two apples in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/7/18) Burns notched two assists in San Jose's win over Minnesota on Tuesday.

    Burns has now recorded at least one point in 11 of San Jose's last 12 games. Long known as one of the better offensive defensemen in the league, the Ontario native has overcome his slow start to the season and now finds himself the third highest-scoring blueliner in the NHL. Burns and the Sharks will look to maintain their Pacific Division lead Thursday when they travel to Dallas to play the Stars.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Inks up scoresheet again

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/31/18) Burns recorded a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.

    The worries of Erik Karlsson taking away from Burns' production after he failed to post a point in the first three games are a distant memory. Burns has notched a point in nine straight games with three goals and 12 assists in that span. The veteran blueliner should be a lock in daily formats and season-long leagues.

    Sharks' Brent Burns: Extends point streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/18) Burns picked up two assists, including one on the power play, in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes on Friday.

    The multiple assists give Burns points in seven straight games, and this was the fourth game where he recorded at least two points. It's certainly a much better start than last season; Burns failed to score and "only" had seven assists in the first 19 games of 2017-18.
