Caps' Burakovsky Gets Two Helpers

News: Andre Burakovsky notched a pair of assists and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's win over the Jackets.
Analysis: The rookie's certainly enjoying his run on the Caps' second line, with three goals and 11 assists over 16 games on the year. He's working out really nicely with Marcus Johansson and Troy Brouwer.

Caps' Burakovsky Pots Two Points Friday

News: Andre Burakovsky scored a goal and added an assist -- both in the second period -- of Friday's 3-2 win over the Balckhawks.
Analysis: Andre Burakovsky and linemate Marcus Johansson hooked up for two goals in just under five minutes to tie the game 2-2, with each grabbing assists on each other's tally. The 19-year-old rookie is now up to an impressive 10 points in 13 games this season and should start making his way into Calder Trophy discussions if he can continue to produce at this pace.

Caps' Burakovsky Stays Hot Thursday

News: Andre Burakovsky tallied a goal in Thursday's victory over the Devils.
Analysis: With two goals and three assists in his first four NHL contests, Andre Burakovsky has performed better than the Capitals could have possibly hoped. He probably won't continue to produce at a point-per-game clip the rest of the way, but his equally impressive preseason and credentials as a former first-round pick suggest the 19-year-old may not be in line for a steep reduction in his scoring.

Caps' Burakovsky: Three-Game Point Streak

News: Andre Burakovsky had an assist in Washington's 6-5 shootout loss to San Jose on Tuesday.
Analysis: Andre Burakovsky is off to a hot start, especially for a player thought to begin the year in AHL Hershey. Though assignment to the minors still remains a possibility, the 19-year-old Swede is making his case to stick at the NHL level. Consistency and faceoff troubles could pose a problem for Burakovsky in the future, as could a challenge by Evgeny Kuznetsov for the Capitals' second-line center job. But for now, the former Eerie Otter is looking the part of an NHL regular.

Caps' Burakovsky Stretches Streak To Two Games

News: Andre Burakovsky's hot start continued Saturday with two assists in a 4-0 win over Boston.
Analysis: Two games, three points. Get him onto your dynasty roster. And fast -- he looks like the hype is real.

Caps' Burakovsky Scores Goal In Debut

News: Andre Burakovsky scored the Caps' first goal of the new season in his NHL debut Thursday against the Canadiens.
Analysis: After surprisingly beating out Evgeny Kuznetsov for the second-line center job in training camp, Andre Burakovsky immediately validated coach Barry Trotz's decision, knocking home a one-timer from the slot just under seven minutes into the first period. In what the Capitals hope will be a positive omen, Burakovsky became the first Washington player to score a goal in his NHL debut since Alexander Ovechkin achieved the feat on Oct. 5, 2005. Burakovsky finished the night with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal over 15:58 of ice time, with an additional 2:18 coming on the power play.

Caps Decide To Keep Burakovsky

News: Andre Burakovsky has made the Capitals' Opening Night roster, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Though Marcus Johansson and Evgeny Kuznetsov entered training camp as the favorites to claim the second-line center job, it appears those duties will fall to Andre Burakovsky, who wowed the team brass during practices and in this summer's prospects camp. The 2013 first-round draft pick accumulated two goals and two assists over six preseason contests, and certainly bears watching while he remains with Washington in a top-six role.

Capitals' Burakovksy Practicing On Second Line

News: Andre Burakovsky skated on the Capitals' second line between Brooks Laich and Troy Brouwer during Wednesday's practice, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: The Capitals have apparently narrowed down the job of second-line center to Burakovksy and Evgeny Kuznetsov, with Kuznetsov the current favorite to win the job. Andre Burakovsky has had an impressive summer with the Capitals at various camps, and although he will be given another look for the job, the smart money would be on him being sent to the minors to get a full season of experience playing center with AHL Hershey. Still, this situation bears watching over the Capitals' final preseason games set to continue with Wednesday's match in Buffalo.

Caps' Burakovsky Scores First (Unofficial) Goal

News: Andre Burakovsky scored the only goal in the Capitals' 1-0 over Buffalo on Sunday night.
Analysis: Andre Burakovsky scored a nice wrist shot from the face-off circle, and continued to build on his impressive offseason. While Burakovsky is likely destined for AHL Hershey for the balance of the season, the 19-year-old Swede has impressed his coaches throughout the summer. With the leg injury to Tom Wilson and Burakovsky's emerging skills as a potential scoring line center, Burakovsky might be able to secure a roster spot if he keeps this level of play throughout preseason. Keep an eye on him, as Burakovsky has some burgeoning sleeper potential in single-season leagues, and is a must own in keeper leagues.
