Brent Burns learned a great deal from Wes Walz during his time with the Minnesota Wild.
"Wes Walz was an unbelievable leader and taught me a lot," Burns told ESPN. "Really helped shape me quite a bit." The 35-year-old veteran has become a leader for San Jose and now he's imparting the same wisdom to the team's young players. Burns also talked about starting his NHL career as a right winger on a line with Alexandre Daigle and Marc Chouinard. He played seven years with Minnesota before being traded to San Jose in June 2011. Burns spent time as a forward with the Sharks as well before being switched to a defenseman. Apr 20 10:58 am (EST)
