Video: Brent Burns impresses Jeremy Roenick

Apr 17, 2013, 2:30 AM EST

Before the San Jose Sharks decided to move Brent Burns back to his original position as a forward, it seemed like his greatest contribution to the 2013 season would be his incredible caveman team photo.

Many believe that he’s been the difference-maker since he went from the blueline to the forward corps, though. In that time, the 28-year-old earned the respect of Jeremy Roenick, who raved about Burns’ work in the video below:

Joe Thornton managed his 500th assist as a member of the Sharks on that T.J. Galiardi goal. That and Raffi Torres‘ unlikely shootout winner added up to a memorable 3-2 shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night. Check out the highlights:

      Yeah, because he’s the reason why the Sharks have blown it in the playoffs when he was there.

    Burns should be impressing everyone. Great hockey player.

    Who cares what JR says, he only cares about himself. Surprised he hasn’t thrown an old teammate under the bus to get more publicity lately.
