Former Red Wing Shawn Burr dies at 47

Shawn Burr, whose upbeat personality made him a fan and teammate favorite during his time with the Red Wings, has passed away.

Burr was 47. He had battled cancer in recent years, but died Monday evening after an accident over the weekend.

Chris Osgood overlapped with Burr during Burr's last seasons with the Wings, and remembers a guy who never stopped talking - or laughing.

"He was a funny guy, a non-stop talker, always had a trick to play," Osgood told the Free Press. "My first game as a rookie, he put my name upside down on my jersey. He was the guy in the 90s who kept everybody else relaxed. He did the dirty work for the team on the ice, and then kept the guys relaxed in the dressing room."tiffany e co

Burr was drafted by the Wings seventh overall in 1984, debuting with them the following season. He would go on to play 16 years in the NHL, completing his career with the Tampa Bay Lighting and San Jose Sharks. He produced 181 goals and 259 assists for 440 points in 878 games. His larger than life personality shone through in interviews and on the ice. After departing the Wings after the 1994-95 season - which saw the Wings go all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals - Burr went from Tampa Bay to San Jose and back to the Lightning for one last go-around, in 1999-2000.

He returned to the Detroit area to live, joining the Wings' alumni association. The quality of the games may have changed, but Burr's personality hadn't.

"I know some of the other guys on the alumni team, they told me he'd sit in the dressing room and talk non-stop," Osgood outlet

"Then he'd take a shift on the ice, and when he was done with it, talk again.

"He had a lot, a lot of energy. He always had something going on."

Burr was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia in February of 2011, but underwent treatment, including chemotherapy, and was reportedly cancer free.
