San Jose's Brent Burns is expected to retake his role as a defenseman for the Sharks in the 2014-15 season.
On a conference call with the media Thursday, Sharks GM Doug Wilson laid out his plan to return the offensive-minded player to the blue line. Considering he held his own as a forward, registering 48 points in 69 contests this season, it's a little surprising to hear this news, although Burns will certainly retain a prominent role on the team's power-play going forward.
