Burns put up production across categories in Tuesday's preseason win over the Canucks. He finished with a goal, a plus-2 rating, four penalty minutes, seven shots, two hits and 20:04 of ice time.
Burns is expected to form a top-four defensive pairing with Paul Martin this season, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Sharks head coach Pete DeBoer said Burns is a defenseman, Sportsnet.ca reports. "He's a defenceman," DeBoer said of Burns. "You can't play that position part-time. He was a little bit uncomfortable. We have to commit to him playing there, so he can really become comfortable with it."
