EA Sports’ NHL 17 released their Top 10 Defensemen in the NHL and Brent Burns finds himself ranked sixth with a 92 mark.
While the honor of being in the Top 10 is outstanding, Brent is showing us even more reason why the hockey world has fallen in love with him. His personality, beard, and his gap toothed grin are all secondary to the genuine, good person Brent Burns is.
Showing us what he is all about, Burns surprised kids from his hometown, Barrie, with new CCM hockey sticks. And if that wasn’t cool enough, the kids got the chance to skate around with the 6th ranked defenseman.
Check out this video that shows it all. Who do you think is having more fun, the kids or the big kid, Brent Burns?
