The San Jose Sharks and stud defenseman Brent Burns have made serious progress on a contract extension, reports TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

Still some details that need ironing out that will decide if the deal ultimately gets done or not but certainly lots of progress, I'm told

Burns was a key cog in San Jose's run to the Stanley Cup Final last year. He paced the team's blue line, appearing in all 82 regular-season games while posting 75 points, before adding another 24 points in 24 playoff contests. This season, he's recorded 16 points in 19 games.

A pending unrestricted free agent, Burns currently carries a cap hit of $5.76 million.
