Shawn Burr, former Red Wing player died yesterday at the age of 47. Burr had battled cancer in recent years, but died about 7 p.m. Monday after a fall down the stairs earlier at his home in St. Clair that caused massive brain trauma. 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 returned to the St. Clair area to live following his hockey career. Burr was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in February 2011, but underwent treatment, including chemotherapy. He eventually underwent a bone marrow transplant operation, and was ahead of the cancer. Donations or memorials can be made to the Shawn Burr Foundation, P.O. Box 610812, Port Huron, MI 48061.
