Watch: Brent Burns’ young son scores and celebrates at skills competition

Sunday January 31st, 2016

You knew when goalies Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider, both mic’d up, started arguing about who was going to take the net that something good was coming. Sure enough, Brent Burns’ son Jagger stole the spotlight at the Breakaway Challenge.

Flying toward the net with his father, Burns’ son put one past the two arguing goalies, who were fighting beside the net at this point. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree either, it would seem, as young Burns proceeded to drop his mitts and celebrate in style before hamming it up with the rest of the players.
