Prior to his NHL career Burish, a Madison, Wisconsin native, played at the University of Wisconsin and graduated with a degree in Economics.

In the 2009–10 season, he was a member of the Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks.
On July 1, 2010, Burish left the Blackhawks as a free agent and signed a two-year deal with the Dallas Stars at $1.15 million per year.
Upon expiration of his contract with the Stars, on July 1, 2012, Burish signed a four-year deal with the San Jose Sharks at $1.8 million per year, reuniting with University of Wisconsin teammate Joe Pavelski.
