San Jose Shark Brent Burns has supported Defending The Blue Line from the beginning in 2009 when he played for the MN Wild.
Brent Burns’ support for military families is well known by anyone and everyone around him. While playing for the MN wild, Brent and his wife purchased a suite at the Xcel Energy Center for the entire 2009-10 NHL season and donated it to DTBL. This very generous donation allowed over 500 members of the military family to attend a Minnesota Wild game. DTBL Would like to thank Brent and Susan Burns for the strong support of our mission, and for their undying support of the service men and women of both the United States and Canadian military.
Brent continues his efforts helping DTBL in San Jose. From December 19, 2011 – January 2, 2012 a successful equipment collection in San Jose, Fremont, and Oakland, California was done to support Burnzie’s Battalion by Sharks Ice and Cathy’s Power Hour.
