The 26-year-old Burns set career highs with 17 goals, 29 assists and 46 points in 2010-11. He was also a member of the 2010-11 Western Conference All-Star Team. Burns was originally chosen by the Wild in the first round, 20th overall, of the 2003 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

Burns made his NHL debut with the Wild in 2003-04. In 453 games, Burns has 55 goals and 128 assists for 183 points. He also has 325 penalty minutes, including a career-high 98 this season.

Besides acquiring Burns, the Sharks also received a second round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. In exchange, the Wild acquired forward Devin Setoguchi, prospect center Charlie Coyle and San Jose’s first round (28th overall) pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
