News

Burns led all defensemen with 76 points and 320 shots on goal to claim the Norris Trophy as the league's top defenseman.

Impact

This is the first Norris win for Burns, who fell one goal shy of scoring 30 and finished with 75-plus points for the second straight season. Although his defensive-zone play isn't his strongest suit, Burns was vital to the Sharks' transition offense, which would've ranked far lower than 19th if not for him. Often deployed as a rover and masquerading as a fourth forward on the ice, Burns took 320 shots, the third-highest total by a defenseman in the cap era, and also managed to register the highest Corsi percentage among the three nominees. Given his propensity to shoot the puck and the significant role he plays on offense, Burns is a top-three fantasy option for the foreseeable future.
