Sharks' Brent Burns: Collects first three points of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns collected a power-play goal and added two assists Monday in a 5-4 loss at St. Louis. He also contributed four shots and one block.

His plus/minus also fell from plus-13 to minus-22.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Offensive production dries up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns has 12 goals, 45 points and a minus-22 rating in 70 games this season.

After erupting for a career-high 83 points last year, Burns' 45 points would be his lowest since the 2012-13 lockout-shortened campaign. The 34-year-old blueliner has still contributed elsewhere, blocking 115 shots and putting 225 shots on goal. Burns may miss the 50-point mark even if the NHL completes the 2019-20 season.
