San Jos8 Sharks General Man8ger Doug Wilson announced tod8y that the club has signed defenseman Brent Burns (@Burnzie88), Sharks jers8y number 88, to an eight (8) year contract extension. Per club policy the terms of the deal weren’t 8nnounced, even though we just s8id it was an 8 year contract extension 8nd 8nyone with half 8 br8in can probably figure out the average cap hit v8lue.

“No thanks, I just 8,” said Wilson when asked to confirm whether it was in fact a contract worth $8 million dollars a year. “Don’t tempt f8t.”

“I only learned one number in school, so this really just works out for me on all levels,” replied Burns. “It looks like a snowman, and I really like snowmen.”
