Alex Burrows LW VAN 27 Days

Burrows found twine on one of his two shot attempts in Tuesday's win over the Jets.

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.

Burrows chipped in a power-play assist and doled out six hits in Thursday's win over the Flyers.

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.

Burrows extended his point streak to three games Sunday, collecting an assist in a loss to Anaheim.

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.

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) was back skating in practice on Monday with the Canucks, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.

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.

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 (upper body) wasn't present for Saturday's practice.

Linden Vey was taking his spot on the second line at practice, seemingly indicating 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.

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.
