Burns, has recorded 43 points (16G, 27A) in 40 games played with the Saskatoon Blades so far this season. The 6'2", 175-pound product of Edmonton, AB has 281 games of WHL experience under his belt, recording 64 goals and 97 assists for 161 points in that span.
"We've been watching him (Burns) for a while and we think he will be a perfect addition to our team. He's big, he can score and he has a strong defensive side to his game," says Head Coach and General Manager, Mark Lamb. "It was a hard trade to make, but it was one that had to be done. Connor will have a great opportunity in Saskatoon with the Blades and we want to wish him all the best going forward."
