Burns Named “Third Star” of the Week

Along with Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson and New Jersey Devils left wing Michael Cammalleri, Brent Burns was named one of the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the week ending November 27.

According to NHL.com, here is what earned the San Jose Shark Defenseman the title:

Burns ranked first among defensemen with 2-4-6 in four outings as the Sharks (12-9-1, 25 points) won three of their four games to maintain second place in the Pacific Division. He posted 1-1-2 in a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils Nov. 21. Fresh off signing an eight-year contract extension, Burns then collected multiple points in each of his next two appearances – two assists in a 2-1 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks Nov. 23 and 1-1-2 in a 3-2 win over the New York Islanders Nov. 25 – before being held off the scoresheet in a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks Nov. 26. The 31-year-old Barrie, Ont., native leads NHL defensemen and paces the Sharks with 8-12-20 in 22 games this season.
