Burrows (neck) will be back in action Wednesday against the Canadiens.

Burrows, who missed the previous four outings, is still searching for his first point of the season. The veteran has reached the 20-point mark in eight of the last nine campaigns, but could be a long shot to get past that threshold this year if he continues averaging just 11:17 of ice time per night. Earlier Monday, the Canucks made room for Burrows on their 23-man roster by reassigning Mike Zalewski to AHL Utica.
