News: 1 day agoBurns had two assists in a 6-2 win over Buffalo on Saturday.
Spin: Burns now has 600 career helpers in the NHL. He's the 17th defender in league history, and only active defender, to hit that milestone. Burns has 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 23 games, which puts him into the NHL's top-40 scorers from the blue line. He's off his 61-point pace from last season, which could be a sign of age-related decline, but he stands a chance to get back on track if he continues to pile up shots.
