Brent Burns' Suit Game: Strong

That's one cool leprechaun you got, San Jose.

Brent Burns has that Leprechaun-Chic style locked down. — NHL on NBC (@NHLonNBCSports)March 16, 2016

Brent Burns is awesome, that much we already know.

This is the guy who wore a Chewbacca mask during the All-Star Game skills competition and has a Burns Chia Pet on the way, which the Sharks will be handing out during their March 28 contest against the Kings. He's a lot of fun, just take a look at the Sharks' display picture on Twitter—a toothless, big-bearded, happy-go-lucky Burns with a huge grin on his face.

With St. Patrick's Day on the horizon, Burns looked to outdo himself, busting out a leprechaun suit that he wore to Tuesday's game versus the Bruins.

Brent Burns, hairiest leprechaun in the world — Pete Blackburn (@PeteBlackburn)March 16, 2016

Seriously, what's not to like about this guy?

He's pretty good at hockey, too. Burns netted a goal and an assist in the Sharks' 3-2 win over Boston. The goal was his 26th of the season, tying Sandis Ozolinsh (1993-1994) for the most goals by a Sharks defenceman in a single season. Burns has a career-high 64 points and counting and his 26 goals lead all NHL defencemen.
