SAN JOSE — This year, Sharks forward Brent Burns is giving up the caveman look. Sort of.

No, he hasn't chopped off the hair or shaved the beard that drew national attention a year ago when he had his annual photo taken on the opening of training camp looking as disheveled as he possibly could.

But this year, according a photo circulated by the team's Twitter account, Burns pulled his long hair back in a tight Samurai-style bun.

Burns was a defenseman when he had the wild-man look last year, but no word if his conversion to a forward role late last season had anything to do with the new hairstyle.
