Former Detroit Red Wing Shawn Burr will undergo a bone marrow transplant to stem the recurrence of acute myeloid leukemia.

Burr was the Red Wings first round pick, seventh overall, in the 1984 Draft. "It’s a nervous period. I mean, I joke about it and make fun, but even though it’s a good match, there are, obviously, a lot of things that have to go right," Burr said. "I’m pretty confident in the doctors I have and in the place that I am, as far as the treatment and stuff that they’re doing. But the quicker you can get off all of the drugs, the better." We wish Burr the best of luck in fight with leukemia.
