The San Jose Sharks have signed star defenseman Brent Burns to a $64 million, eight-year contract extension. The deal announced Tuesday keeps Burns off the free agent market next summer and with the Sharks for the long term. Burns was a finalist for the Norris Trophy last season as the NHL’s top defenseman when he helped lead San Jose to its first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final.
