Interestingly enough, Burish is an American which brings a very special kind of hot to the table.
Burish also comes to us via a suggestion from Meli, who mentioned in the comments on THIS POST [Patrick Sharp (CHI)], that "Now I'm totally crushing on Burish now that I've watched those videos over and over again! Stephanie, you can't have Sharpe without Burish--so now you need to do a hottie for him!!"
Well, since I simply can not resist Hot Hockey Players (In any type, form, or team affiliation.), here's your Burish post Meli...
IMPORTANT HOCKEY STUFF: Well, there is that NCAA men's championship. Oh, and did I mention he's an American born player? (from Madison, WI). Always special, that. Skated in his 100th NHL game on Oct. 31, 2008. (Happy Halloween, sweetheart. Even if it is a bit late, you'll have to stop by for a little um, trick-or-treat.) [OH, you're GOOOOD! That would be a great pick-up line!] He's played 3 seasons in the NHL, all 3 for the Blackhawks.
Last year, was his first full season in the NHL. He ranked third in the NHL with a team-high 214 penalty minutes (naughty). When he also became the first Blackhawks player since Bob Probert in 1998-99 to rack up more than 200 penalty minutes in a single season. Named the Blackhawks Man of the Year by AHAI (Amateur Hockey Association of Illinois) in 07/08. He's probably on his way to similar honors again this year .
This is one of those players that you can find out more off ice stuff than on ice. He has quite the personality (and his teammates agree [you have to watch till the very end, it's worth it though, it's funny]).
REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF: He has pretty sandy brown hair (I'd have to stretch to call it blond but blond would work in a pinch [hysterical laughter]), and lovely light blue eyes. 6'1" 200lbs. And more personality than a pen of monkeys over a hot stove. Just watch the ever infamous "prankster" videos (one, two & three). You just can't not love him or Sharpie, you just can't do it. Also of keen interest is the McDonald's visit [VIDEO ] it's definitely worth a look-see, too (I have to admit, Kane's looking pretty manly in it as well). [you and blondes, Kena - what is it?!!]
Once worked as a security guard on "Jerry Springer" (No stop laughing, I'm SERIOUS here. Still don't believe me [Read Here] it has pictures. You can't argue with pictures, right?) About which experience Mr. Burish had this to say "I did gain some respect for the refs in our games, and realized how hard it is to break up a fight. I will tell you though the hardest fights to break up were not the guys but the girls. Not only did I try and be careful where I put my hands while separating them, but what are you supposed to do when the girls start pulling each others hair? (To this day, I haven't figured this one out myself.) I have to admit I was a bit lost when that happened". Oh and we must not forget to mention he's an American (oh sorry, did I mention that before? Silly me.)
He's also well trained in the art of dealing with females, most especially hockey females, thanks to his sister. Who centered the top line herself, in college and went on to win an NCAA title herself only a few short weeks before Burish went on to win one of his own with the rest of the Michigan boys. [Read Here ]. In fact, she said to him "I let him know he had to finish it off or I’d hold that over his head the rest of his life.” Ah, sisterly love. Nothing like it in the world. Oh, and did I ever mention, he's an AMERICAN ; )...
