Brent Burns Trade

The Carolina Hurricanes have allegedly acquired defender Brent Burns and winger Lane Pederson from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Steven Lorentz, Eetu Makiniemi, and a 2023 third-round selection.

Additionally, the Sharks will retain 33 percent of Burns’ $8 million AAV contract, lowering his cap impact from $8 million to $5.33 million.

Burns is an experienced right-shot defenseman with over 1,200 NHL games under his belt, and he has three years at $8 million AAV left on his contract (albeit his real money owing is only $16.5 million).

In 2021-22, Burns contributed 54 points for the Sharks while participating in all 82 games for the squad. Even at the age of 36, Burns was fairly prolific. He’s never had any significant injury concerns, and he’s put up 40 or more points in 10 separate seasons during his long NHL career. He earned the Norris trophy back in 2017.

Burns is the Hurricanes’ likely replacement for Tony DeAngelo, who paired on Carolina’s top pairing with Jaccob Slavin a season ago. Burns offers some needed and tremendous offensive firepower to the Canes’ blue line after the departure of DeAngelo.
