Burrows has decided to retire after 13 NHL seasons, NHLPA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burrows hangs up his skates having accumulated 409 points (205 goals, 204 assists) in 913 career contests between the Canucks and Senators. While few hockey pundits (if any) ever doubted his talent, Burrows occasionally tested the limits of the league's Department of Player Safety. According to Spotrac.com, Burrows forfeited $214,488 in fines and lost out on 10 games due to suspension over the course of his career -- most of the infractions resulted from roughing incidents.

The Senators placed Burrows on unconditional waivers Tuesday to initiate a contract buyout, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burrows was a mess last season, as he only mustered six goals and eight helpers to counter a minus-8 rating over 71 games. Furthermore, he let down his fantasy owners in a big way by kneeing New Jersey's Taylor Hall last February and consequently getting hit with a 10-game ban. By eating Burrows' contract, the Senators will save $833,333 over the next two years.

Burrows' 2017-18 campaign produced the lowest point total (14) since the 2006-07 season (nine).

EDGE Analysis

The 37-year-old may be feeling the effects of his age, because Burrows produced this dismal point total despite a consistent power-play role. Burrows brings veteran leadership to the table, and he's still locked up with the Senators for one more year at $2.5 million, but his team would surely like to see an uptick in production next season.

Burrows set up Max McCormick's first-period goal and iced the game with an empty-netter in a 4-2 win over Buffalo on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Burrows has now matched the goal total he put up for the Senators in 2016-17, with six on the year. The problem is he only played 20 games with Ottawa last year after a trade, as opposed to the 69 games he's played in a Senators sweater this year. Few have been a better symbol of Ottawa's fall from grace this year, and his scoring comes so infrequently that he doesn't belong on rosters outside the deepest of leagues.

Burrows scored a goal on two shots while adding a hit, a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

EDGE Analysis

The former 35-goal scorer has only lit the lamp five times in 60 games this season, and Burrows is little more than a depth forward at this stage of his career. He's got one more year left on his contract, but that's no guarantee he'll find a role in the NHL in 2018-19.

Burrows has fully served his 10-game suspension for repeatedly kneeing Devils forward Taylor Hall in a Feb. 6 contest. The 36-year-old winger will be eligible to play in Friday night's road game against the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

You're not likely to see many fantasy owners (if any at all) rushing to activate Burrows. He's having a tumultuous 2017-18 campaign comprised of eight points through 51 games. Burrows is averaging 1:26 of ice time on the man advantage, but Ottawa's power play is ranked 27th in the league, and he's mustered only a pair of points in that special teams spot.

Burrows, who was waived by the Senators on Sunday, will fully serve out his suspension by sitting out of Tuesday's game against the Capitals. The winger will remain in the NHL, reprising his fourth-line role upon returning, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears that Burrows was waived for roster flexibility purposes, but he remains property of the Senators having cleared waivers. As the owner of just eight points through 51 games, the 36-year-old isn't rendered useful in many fantasy settings.

Burrows (suspension) was placed on waivers Sunday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 36-year-old forward has one game left to serve on his 10-game suspension for repeatedly kneeing New Jersey's Taylor Hall. With just eight points in 51 games this season, it's hard to imagine other teams were lining up trade offers for Burrows. In the event that he goes unclaimed, Ottawa will likely send him down to the AHL.

Burrows has decided not to appeal his 10-game suspension for repeatedly kneeing Taylor Hall in Tuesday's game against the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

Burrows issued a statement about his actions from his team's most recent game. "The situation was one in which I recognize I let my emotions get the better of me, and it was a relief to see that Taylor Hall was not injured." While it's nice to see the winger express regret for his conduct, the fact of the matter is that he's dragging a slumping team down even further by getting banned for the remainder of the month. There probably won't be many fantasy owners feeling the collateral damage, though, as Burrows' eight points through 51 games left him off the map in most virtual settings anyway.

Burrows has been suspended for 10 games for his actions against Devils winger Taylor Hall on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Burrows wasn't pleased after taking a shot from Hall, but took his actions too far during the contest and has been suspended by the league as a result of his actions. The Senators will be without his services until March 2, barring a reduced suspension upon appeal. Unless multiple bodies return to action for Thursday's matchup against the Predators, Ottawa may be forced to recall reinforcements from the minors or roll with seven defensemen.
