Burrows scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Avalanche. The goal came on the power play. Burrows now has six points, including four goals, in six games since joining the Sens. Check your wire -- he could be available. Playing close to home may just give Burrows' career a bit of an uptick.
Burrows recorded a goal and an assist with three shots on net and a plus-2 rating during Monday's win over Boston. That's two multi-point showings through three games with Ottawa for Burrows, which makes him an intriguing grab in the majority of seasonal leagues. Additionally, he's also currently providing nice value in daily contests. Burrows has registered 120 shots and 53 PIM through 58 games to provide decent peripheral coverage, too. Still, while things look peachy now, it would be surprising to see Burrows continue tilting the offensive needle to this degree through the end of season.
Burrows scored both of Ottawa's goals in his team debut Thursday against the Avalanche. GM Pierre Dorion was criticized for surrendering prospect Jonathan Dahlen in a deal for Burrows, but the veteran winger will change that perception in a hurry if he continues producing like this. Despite posting just four points in his final 20 games with the Canucks, Burrows skated in a top-six role on a line with Derick Brassard and Mike Hoffman. One game against the worst team in the league isn't a definitive sample size, but there's no denying that the four-time 25-goal scorer's stock is on the rise following the change of scenery.
Burrows worked with Mike Hoffman and Kyle Turris on the team's top scoring line in practice Wednesday, Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 reports. The new acquisition is getting a golden opportunity in Canada's capital city, skating with two very talented forwards. His goal production has dropped dramatically in recent seasons, but perhaps a change of scenery will give him renewed confidence. Burrows will likely see plenty of time on the power-play unit, too, making him a nice short-term add in fantasy pools until Bobby Ryan (finger) is able to return.
Burrows signed a two-year extension worth $2.5 million per season on Tuesday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. Once a highly productive player in Vancouver, Burrows has seen his offensive production plummet in recent years -- just 41 goals in 253 games over the past four seasons. Ottawa likely did not want to sign a soon-to-be 36-year-old in decline through 2018-19, but was essentially forced into it due to the rules of the expansion draft. Unless Burrows finds a spark in Ottawa, there's a very real possibility that he won't play out the entirety of this deal.
