Alex Burrows LW VAN 5 Days

Burrows found twine twice Monday, scoring his seventh and eighth goals of the year in a 7-1 beatdown of the visiting Coyotes.

After scoring four goals in six games back in November, 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.

Burrows (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

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.

Burrows (upper body) will likely miss Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.

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.

Burrows has an upper-body injury and will not play in Thursday's game vs. the Ducks, the team's official Twitter account reports.

It remains unclear what Burrows is dealing with, but we do know Linden Vey will take his place on the second line Thursday. Burrows is having himself a nice bounce-back season thus far, collecting four goals and nine points in 16 games.

Burrows potted his third goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Sharks.

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.

Burrows (suspension) will be back in the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.

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.

The NHL has suspended Burrows for three games following his hit to Alexei Emelin's head on Thursday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.

There was no penalty called after the collision, but the NHL determined the hit was serious enough to warrant a three game suspension. Burrows will miss match-ups with Edmonton, Nashville, and Colorado while serving his suspension.

Burrows is expected to face supplemental discipline for his illegal hit on the Habs' Alexei Emelin on Thursday, Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet reports.

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.
