Adam Burish (born January 6, 1983) is an American professional ice hockey winger who currently plays for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Burish was drafted in the 9th round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, 282nd overall by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Prior to his NHL career Burish, a Madison, Wisconsin native, played at the University of Wisconsin and graduated with a degree in Economics. He served as captain for the national champion 2005–06 team, and assisted on both goals (by Robbie Earl and Tom Gilbert) in Wisconsin's 2-1 victory over Boston College in the title game.[1]

He won the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010 over the Philadelphia Flyers. After the Finals, he claimed that Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger is "the biggest idiot in the league...and if I see him out there, I might punch him." Pronger responded the next day by asking if Burish would punch him in the face in the minors. Burish later took back his comments.

On July 1, 2010, Burish signed a 2 year deal with the Dallas Stars at $1.15 million per year.

On July 1, 2012 (upon expiration of his contract with the Stars), he signed a four-year deal with the San Jose Sharks at $1.8 million per year, reuniting with University of Wisconsin teammate Joe Pavelski.

On October 17, 2013, he had surgery to repair an injured back and was placed on injured reserve.

In the 2014–15 season, on November 21, 2014, Burish was placed on waivers by the Sharks and was sent down to play with affiliate, the Worcester Sharks of the AHL.

On January 14, 2015, the Chicago Wolves acquired him via loan. After concluding the season with the Wolves, on June 19, 2015, Burish was bought out from the final year of his contract with the Sharks, releasing him to free agency.

Unable to gain another NHL deal, Burish left North America as a free agent, signing his first contract abroad for the 2015–16 season, in playing with the Växjö Lakers and Malmö Redhawks of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). He left the Redhawks in 2016 after playing in 3 games.

Media careerEdit

In 2017, Burish joined NBC Sports Chicago in 2017 as an analyst for the Chicago Blackhawks. He provides commentary during pregame and postgame shows.

PersonalEdit

Burish has a younger sister, Nikki Burish, who also played for the University of Wisconsin.[2]He is of Greek descent.[3][4]
