Canucks' Burrows Set To Miss Another

News: Alex Burrows (lower body) is expected to miss Thursday's game against the Sabres, Jeff Paterson of TSN Radio 1040 reports.
Analysis: Alex Burrows hasn't been spotted on the ice since apparently suffering the injury during last Thursday's game against the Rangers. He'll sit out a fourth straight game with the ailment, which could eventually force him to injured reserve.

Canucks' Burrows (Lower Body) Won't Play Sunday

News: Alex Burrows (lower body) won't play Sunday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Alex Burrows was scratched late before Friday's contest due to the lower-body injury, and it will cost him Sunday's game as well. The winger has tallied just 25 points in 52 games with season, and his absence will likely draw Zack Kassian into the lineup again Sunday.

Canucks' Burrows Out Friday

News: Alex Burrows (lower body) won't play Friday against the Devils.
Analysis: At this point in time it isn't clear when Alex Burrows sustained the lower body injury, but it's safe to assume it happened at some point in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Rangers. The severity of the injury is currently unknown. The team should release more information regarding Burrows' status in the coming days, but for now, he should be considered day-to-day.

Canucks' Burrows Scratched Friday

News: Alex Burrows will be scratched Friday against the Devils.
Analysis: Zack Kassian will enter the Canucks' lineup in Alex Burrows' place. It seems likely Burrows, who has been thriving on Vancouvers' top line with the Sedin twins, is being scratched due to injury, and the team should release more information regarding Burrows' status in the near future.

Canucks' Burrows Thriving Back With Sedin Twins

News: Alex Burrows is thriving on the top line with the Sedin twins, contributing two goals, four points and 12 shots on goal in his last five games.
Analysis: Radim Vrbata, who is on a seven-game point streak, has been dropped to the second line, meaning Alex Burrows has been reunited with his old linemates on the top line. Burrows is also playing on the top power-play unit, so he's worth checking out in some deeper leagues. Knowing the way he's clicked with the twins in the past, if Burrows stays on the top line, he could be an underrated waiver wire add down the stretch.

Canucks' Burrows Has Best Game Of Season

News: Alex Burrows had arguably his best game of the season Saturday, netting a game-winning power-play goal and adding an assist in a win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Alex Burrows is thriving back on the top line with the Sedin twins, scoring twice in his last three games. The 33-year-old has recorded 12 goals in 46 games this season, including two game-winners. As the Canucks embark on their hunt for a playoff spot, Burrows could be worth looking at, as he's playing on the top line and is only three years removed from a 28-goal season.

Burrows Buries Goal As Canucks Win

News: Alex Burrows found twine on one of his two shot attempts in Tuesday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: Alex Burrows was appointed to the top line in the game and it immediately paid dividends, as the Sedin brothers were both credited with assists on his first-period goal. It doesn't seem likely that the Canucks will permanently deploy Burrows on the top trio, but if he's able to build any sort of scoring streak, coach Willie Desjardins could reconsider those plans.

Canucks' Burrows Adds Power-Play Goal

News: Alex Burrows chipped in a power-play assist and doled out six hits in Thursday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Alex Burrows recently enjoyed a stint on the top line with the Sedin brothers, but no points came of the opportunity. He's since returned to the second line, where he'll function as a quality depth contributor for the Canucks. However, with 18 points in 37 games to go along with only moderate PIM and hit totals, Burrows doesn't offer much to get excited about from a fantasy perspective.

Canucks' Burrows Picks Up Assist In Loss

News: Alex Burrows extended his point streak to three games Sunday, collecting an assist in a loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Alex Burrows now has four points (two goals) in his past three games, putting him at 16 points (eight goals) in 29 games on the season. While he's been inconsistent throughout the year, the 33-year-old winger should still end up with 20 goals this season, making him valuable in deeper formats.

Two Goals For Canucks' Burrows On Monday

News: Alex Burrows found twine twice Monday, scoring his seventh and eighth goals of the year in a 7-1 beatdown of the visiting Coyotes.
Analysis: After scoring four goals in six games back in November, Alex Burrows had gone nine games without lighting the lamp, so it was nice to see him get the scoring monkey off his back. In 28 games this year, Burrows now has 15 points, an even rating, 22 PIM and 59 SOG, making him relevant again in some formats.

Canucks' Burrows To Return Tuesday

News: Alex Burrows (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Alex Burrows missed the previous two games with an upper-body injury, but the Canucks signed off on his return to the lineup after he was able to participate in Monday's practice. With nine points in 16 games, the winger is already more than halfway to his point total from his disappointing 2013-14 season.

Alex Burrows

Canucks' Burrows Returns To Practice Monday

News: Alex Burrows (upper body) skated in practice on Monday, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Alex Burrows has missed the past two games due to the upper-body injury, and it is still unclear when he will return. In 16 appearances this season, the 33-year-old winger has four goals and five assists.

Canucks' Burrows Unlikely Sunday

News: Alex Burrows (upper body) will likely miss Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Alex Burrows missed Thursday's contest and Saturday's practice, so it would be no surprise if he misses it. Linden Vey will likely slot in on the second line while Bo Horvat should dress assuming Burrows can't go.

Canucks' Burrows Not Practicing

News: Alex Burrows (upper body) wasn't present for Saturday's practice.
Analysis: Linden Vey was taking his spot on the second line at practice, seemingly indicating Alex Burrows is far from a safe bet to play Sunday versus the Blackhawks. The forward was previously a surprising scratch from Thursday's game with the injury.

Alex Burrows

Canucks' Burrows To Miss Thursday's Game

News: Alex Burrows has an upper-body injury and will not play in Thursday's game vs. the Ducks, the team's official Twitter account reports.
Analysis: It remains unclear what Alex Burrows is dealing with, but we do know he woke up sore this morning and didn't take part in the morning skate. Linden Vey will take his place on the second line Thursday, while Bo Horvat will fill in for Vey on the fourth line. Burrows is having himself a nice bounce-back season thus far, collecting four goals and nine points in 16 games.

Canucks' Burrows Scores Third Of Season

News: Alex Burrows potted his third goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Alex Burrows has been a decent fantasy play this season, netting eight points in 13 games, to go with a plus-5 rating. Skating on the second line with the surging Nick Bonino, Burrows should score 20 goals and land in the 50-point range. He's a great secondary scorer.

Canucks' Burrows Returns Thursday

News: Alex Burrows (suspension) will be back in the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Alex Burrows served a three-game ban for his check to the head of the Habs' Alexei Emelin last week, but with his return, prospect Bo Horvat will be forced to the press box. The veteran winger has rebounded well from a dismal 2013-14 campaign, scoring two goals and six points in 10 games prior to his suspension.

Canucks' Burrows Suspended For Three Games

News: The NHL has suspended Alex Burrows for three games following his hit to Alexei Emelin's head on Thursday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: There was no penalty called after the collision, but the NHL determined the hit was serious enough to warrant a three-game suspension. Alex Burrows will miss matchups with Edmonton, Nashville, and Colorado while serving his suspension. Tom Sestito, who has been a healthy scratch for most of the season, will likely see an increase in ice time during Burrows' absence, though likely not as a direct fill-in on the second line.

Further Discipline Coming For Canucks' Burrows

News: Alex Burrows is expected to face supplemental discipline for his illegal hit on the Habs' Alexei Emelin on Thursday, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Alex Burrows appeared to check Emelin in the head after the defenseman attempted a shot. No penalty was called while Emelin remained down on the ice before leaving for the remainder of the period. Burrows is set to have a phone hearing with the league office Friday, and while he may be able to avoid a suspension, he could be fined for the hit.

Two Helpers For Canucks' Burrows

News: Alex Burrows snapped a three-game scoreless streak Thursday against the Blues by picking up a pair of assists. He also went plus-2 on the evening.
Analysis: Although it's been a bit of an uneven start to the year for Alex Burrows, he's still finding the scoresheet at a better rate than he has either of the last two seasons. If he can bounce back even as far as the high 40s in terms of points, his combination of offense and penalty minutes will once again play in a wide variety of formats.

Canucks' Burrows Strikes On Power Play In Win

News: Alex Burrows netted a power-play goal in Wednesday's season-opening win over the Flames.
Analysis: It took Alex Burrows 36 games to score his first goal last season, so this is a relief for fantasy owners. Burrows was also credited with two PIM and five hits in the win. It was a great start for the 33-year-old winger, who is currently skating on the second line alongside Nick Bonino and Chris Higgins.

Canucks' Burrows Has Strong Finish To Preseason

News: Alex Burrows finished the preseason with no goals and two assists in five games, to go with a plus-3 rating.
Analysis: Alex Burrows heated up towards the end of exhibition play, fitting in well on the second line with Chris Higgins and Nick Bonino. Burrows loses some fantasy value due to the fact he is no longer playing with the Sedin twins, but that doesn't mean he can't still produce 20 goals. Burrows will see time on the team's second power-play unit and should improve on the lackluster five goals and 15 points he achieved in 2013-14. He's nowhere near as bad as he was last season.

Orca's Burrows: Fantasy Value Continuing To Drop

News: The Canucks' signing of Radim Vrbata means that Alex Burrows will likely be permanently moved off the top line next season.
Analysis: His production has been dropping like a stone since his 35-goal, 67-point effort in 2009-10 and at age 33, he's not likely to realize any improvements at this point. His value at your draft this fall will be linked to the size of your league. Shallow leaguers need not apply.

Canucks' Burrows Fails To Make Impact At Worlds

News: Alex Burrows failed to make an impact with Team Canada at the 2014 World Championships, recording only one assist in six games.
Analysis: After missing two preliminary games with a leg injury, Alex Burrows was able to return in time to see his team fall to Finland in the quarterfinals. Burrows managed only four shots on goal all tournament, averaging only 9:49 of ice time per game. It was a rough outing for the 33-year-old, something he didn't need after a very disappointing season in the NHL with the Canucks.

Canucks' Burrows Suffers Leg Injury At Worlds

News: Alex Burrows suffered a right leg injury during the first period of Team Canada's 6-1 win over Italy at the World Championships on Friday, the Vancouver Sun reports. Burrows was helped off the ice and did not return to the game.
Analysis: The injury was a result of a knee-on-knee hit from Italy's Joachim Ramoser with 56 seconds left in the first period. Alex Burrows was on the ice and writhing in pain after the collision, while Ramoser was given a five-minute major penalty for kneeing and an automatic game misconduct. If Burrows feels okay, it's possible he could play Sunday against Sweden in Canada's biggest game of the preliminary round. Through five games at the Worlds, Burrows has recorded one assist, while averaging 10:57 of ice time. He has recorded the fewest amount of shots (3) among forwards on the team, and also sports a team-worst minus-1 rating.
