    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Adds to streak

    Burakovsky tallied an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over Nashville. Burakovsky now has points in eight straight games, easily the longest streak of his young career. The second line for the Caps is producing at a high level, allowing the 20-year-old to excel, especially as of late. Continue to ride the winger while he's hot.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Extends point streak to six games with assist

    Burakovsky tallied an assist in Saturday's 3-2 OT win over the Devils. Burakovsky assisted on Justin Williams' goal in the first period, and has amassed nine goals and 21 points in 46 games this season -- although he has 12 of those points in his last nine games. Showing improved confidence and solid chemistry with Williams and Evgeny Kuznetsov on a potent second line, the 23rd overall pick for the 2013 Draft is worth adding in all formats if available.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Goals in four straight, points in five straight

    Burakovsky scored another goal Thursday in a win over the Isles, pushing his goal streak to four games and his point streak to five. Alex Ovechkin's return to the lineup didn't result in a major demotion for his fellow Russian, who skated a season-high 18:20 on Tuesday and a still-strong 16:19 in this one. The Caps' 2013 first-round pick (No. 23 overall) has really started coming into his own, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him cling to a top-six role; after all, he doesn't exactly have the stiffest of competition for that second-line left wing job.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Scores against Panthers

    Burakovsky sniped one short side past the netminder in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Florida. Burakovsky is on fire, as he's registered 10 points in his last seven outings. In January alone, the young winger has four multi-point games, which is more than the other three-months of the season combined. During his hot streak, Burkovsky has been capitalizing on his chances while averaging just over 12 minutes of ice time per game.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Stays hot with two goals

    Burakovsky potted a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the visiting Flyers. He might only have 19 points in 44 games this season, but nine of those have come in the last six contests in what's been quite the hot streak for Burakovsky. The 20-year-old is going to smash last year's rookie total of 22 points and should continue to improve as he gets more NHL experience under his belt, especially with a lethal supporting cast led by Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Second straight two-assist game

    Burakovsky picked up two assists and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canucks. That's a pair of two-assist games in a row for Burakovsky, which amounts to his best offensive stretch of the year. But if he can stick alongside Evgeny Kuznetsov and Justin Williams, the 20-year-old Austrian could start putting up much more interesting fantasy stats than he did through the season's first half.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Dishes out two helpers in win

    Burakovsky dished out a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Senators. The second helper came on the man advantage, good for Burakovsky's third point on the power play this season. The 20-year-old has 12 points through 39 games and is on track to surpass his 22-point output from his rookie campaign.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Opens scoring in win

    Burakovsky got the scoring started with his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Bruins. Burakovsky's recent move from the fourth line to the second seems to be paying off. The Austrian sophomore now has two goals in his last four games, and Tuesday's 16:56 of ice time was his third-highest mark of the season. His value has spiked significantly with top-six minutes alongside Evgeny Kuznetsov, and it'll remain elevated as long as he can retain that assignment. It's a good time to quietly scoop him up or deploy him in daily leagues.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Moves up to second line

    Burakovsky will play on the second line Saturday against the Blue Jackets, Mike Vogel of Monumental Network reports. The long-term injury to Jay Beagle (hand) has led head coach Barry Trotz to move Marcus Johansson to anchor the third line center position, clearing the way for Burakovsky to return to a role in the top-six. If he can stick alongside emerging star Evgeny Kuznetsov and Justin Williams, the 20-year-old Swede should see a significant boost in fantasy value, as he had been toiling on the fourth line in recent weeks. Keep an eye on his performance and be ready to add him in the near future if you haven't already.

    Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Healthy scratch Saturday

    Burakovsky will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's match against Colorado, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washingtonreports. The move comes amid Burakovsky being rotated throughout the lineup in recent games trying to jump start his offensive production, which has gone cold as the second-year pro has only one assist in eight games during November. While his long-term ceiling is quite high, it's clear the 23rd overall pick from 2013 is still enduring some growing pains, as he has two goals and four assists in 18 games this season, limiting his value to deeper leagues or dynasty formats.
