Sean M. Burke Sean M. Burke


BORN: Windsor, Ontario, Canada, January 29, 1967.
HEIGHT: 6'4"
WEIGHT: 208 pounds.
CATCHES: Left.

STYLE: Butterfly/stand-up hybrid. Doesn't so much play the puck as he does the percentages of positioning.
STRENGTHS: At 6'4", one of the largest in the league, Burke can be an imposing target for shooters. Good positioning skills; he often lets the "puck find the glove". Excellent attitude, highly coachable. At his best when he is aggressive and low in his crouch.
WEAKNESSES: Inconsistent. Gives up five-hole and low glove side goals. Needs to work on stickhandling, although - to his credit - he doesn't overdo his outlet attempts. Bad back gives him problems from time to time, and he doesn't recover following a scramble as well as smaller goaltenders.
