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.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Helps out on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns recorded a power-play helper, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Burns has picked up seven helpers and 42 shots in his last 10 outings, but he hasn't rippled the twine himself in that span. The 34-year-old defenseman is up to 44 points (16 on the power play), 211 shots, 108 blocks and 66 hits through 66 games this season.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Bags assist in overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns notched an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Devils.

Burns had the secondary helper on Logan Couture's game-winning tally. Through 12 games in February, Burns has racked up 10 points, 51 shots and 27 blocked shots. The 34-year-old is up to 43 points, 206 shots and 104 blocks in 64 outings this season. While he's on his lowest scoring pace since 2013-14, his numbers are still solid from a fantasy perspective.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Two helpers against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns notched two assists, one on the power play, in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.

The All-Star blueliner has points in six straight games, piling up two goals and eight points over that stretch. Burns is well off last season's point-a-game pace overall, but he still has a tidy 12 goals and 41 points through 59 games -- his seventh straight campaign with at least 40 points.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Streak at five games and six points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns picked up an assist Saturday in a 2-0 win over the Wild.

Burns extended his point streak to five games and six points (two goals, four assists). He's way off his pace of last season and even the one before that. But Burns stands to see an uptick in his output with Erik Karlsson on the shelf for the rest of the season.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Strikes on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored a power-play goal on four shots in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Flames.

Burns has racked up five points in his last five games, including two on the power play. The veteran blueliner has 12 tallies, 37 points, 169 shots, 84 blocked shots and a minus-23 rating in 56 contests. Burns is set to appear in his 1,100th career game Friday in Winnipeg.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Deuces wild in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns produced two assists, two shots on goal, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.

Burns had a part in just about every part of the Sharks' win, including his team-high 27:37 of ice time. The defenseman has looked more like himself with four points in his last four games. For the season, he's at 36 points (11 goals, 25 helpers), 165 shots, 83 blocks and a minus-22 rating in 55 appearances.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Deposits goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Flames.

The 34-year-old has scored in two of his last three games. For the season, Burns is at 34 points (11 markers, 23 helpers) through 54 appearances. He's added 163 shots on net, 81 blocked shots and 58 hits.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Rifles in 10th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored a goal on four shots and blocked a pair of shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.

Burns gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead at 5:57 of the second period, but the Canucks pushed back with a four-goal third. The 34-year-old defenseman has 10 goals and 33 points in 52 games this season. He's added 155 shots on net, 77 blocks and a minus-22 rating. Burns will likely play through a shoulder injury for the rest of the year, so expectations for his offense should be tempered accordingly.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Continuing to play through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns (shoulder) will be back in the lineup against Anaheim on Monday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Burns will likely continue to play through this shoulder injury throughout the season, though it's possible the club decides to shut him down later in the year. With just 32 points in 50 games this season, the 34-year-old will almost certainly miss out on reaching the 80-point mark and could produce his lowest point total since the 2013-14 campaign.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Playing through shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns has been playing through a shoulder injury, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear if this injury is related to Burns leaving and returning during a game against the Stars on Jan. 11. Burns has no points in his last three outings -- it's likely the shoulder that is holding him back. He'll have over a week to recover as the Sharks don't play again until Jan. 27 against the Ducks.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Leads team in ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns (upper body) skated 26:22 with four blocked shots and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Coyotes.

Burns was able to shake off a minor injury from Saturday's game against the Stars in time to keep his ironman streak alive. The game-leading ice time indicates he's feeling no ill effects -- fantasy owners can deploy the 34-year-old as usual going forward.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Expected to play against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns (upper body) is expected to play Tuesday against the Coyotes,'s Alan Robinson reports.

Burns will play in his 519th straight game for San Jose on Tuesday. The 34-year-old, who's notched nine goals and 31 points in 47 games this campaign, will skate on the Sharks' second pairing and top power-play unit against Arizona.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Likely to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns (upper body) is considered probable for Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Burns missed Monday's practice as he received treatment for this injury, but there's not much worry about his status for Tuesday's divisional tilt. The 34-year-old has quite the ironman streak going, as he hasn't missed a game since the 2013-14 campaign. Burns has accrued 32 points -- 11 on the power play -- through 47 contests this year.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Two points and possible injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored a goal and added an assist, but also missed a portion of Saturday's 2-1 win over the Stars with an upper-body injury, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Burns factored in on both goals for the Sharks, but after a hit from Roope Hintz in the second period, the defenseman left the ice. He wasn't on the bench to start the third period, but he later returned to finish the contest. He ended with 19:27 in ice time. After the game, interim head coach Bob Boughner said he didn't think Burns was dealing with anything major. The 34-year-old's status should be updated prior to Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, which gives him two full days to shake off the issue.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Adds insurance tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored a goal on a team-high six shots and blocked four shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Burns reached the 30-point mark with the tally (eight goals, 22 helpers). He's added 136 shots on goal, 63 blocks and 54 hits in 46 games this season. Burns is on pace to miss 60 points for the first time since 2013-14, when he had 48 points in 69 outings -- the defenseman hasn't missed a game since that campaign.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Point-per-game in last seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored the overtime-winning goal on the power play and added an even-strength assist in Thursday's 3-2 triumph over Pittsburgh.

Burns helped Tomas Hertl open the scoring before ending the game himself in the extra session. It looked like the bearded blueliner had finally lost a step at age 34 after averaging north of 75 points in the previous four seasons, but Burns is doing his best to reverse that narrative with seven points in his last seven games following an 11-game drought.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Slings 20th helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns posted an assist, four blocked shots, three hits and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Flyers.

While Burns didn't factor in on the scoresheet much, he still produced positive returns for fantasy owners. The defenseman has a goal and four helpers in his last five games and 26 points (six scores, 20 assists) in 40 appearances overall this year.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Returns to form with two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns scored a power-play goal and dished an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Blues.

Burns now has three points in his last two contests after an 11-game drought. The 34-year-old has been known for his offense, so it's good to see him back on the scoresheet. He's at 24 points, 103 shots on goal and a minus-24 rating through 37 appearances. Ten of his points have come on the power play.

Sharks' Brent Burns: Ends unusual dry spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns registered an assist, a team-high six shots on goal and three hits in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Coyotes.

Burns set up Tomas Hertl's second tally of the game. The usually reliable Burns had gone 11 games without a point, posting 26 shots, 16 blocked shots and a minus-9 rating in that span. The 34-year-old still has solid season numbers with 22 points, 100 shots and 44 blocks in 36 games, but his minus-23 rating is the third worst in the league.
