      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.

      Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Notches two points in win

      Burakovsky scored his second goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over the Oilers. That's a three-game point streak for Burakovsky, who has opened the season with five points in seven games. The 20-year-old has been held off the scorehsheet just once this season and has built off his 33-points he recorded in his rookie campaign in 2014-15. He only logged 9:01 of ice time Friday, but the talented Austrian is finding ways to producer no matter amount of ice time he's given.

      Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Scores first goal of season

      Burakovsky contributed a goal in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Calgary. This counts as the first goal of the season for Burakovsky, an agile winger for a Capitals team that has won three straight contests. He recently was pushed down to the fourth line with Nicklas Backstrom returning from a hip injury, though Burakovsky is still averaging a healthy amount of shifts each game, falling in a range of 10:44 and 17:31 TOI over the past five contests.

      Capitals' Andre Burakovsky: Moved down to fourth line Saturday

      Burakovsky will move down to the fourth line Saturday night against the Hurricanes, with Nicklas Backstrom expected to return from a hip injury, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Burakovsky's fantasy value figures to take a hit with this development, as he'll now be far removed from the team's scoring line. Early indications point to Chandler Stephenson and Brooks Laich welcoming Burakovsky to the lowest line Saturday.

    • Tallies Power-Play Goal Monday

      News: Burakvosky scored a power-play goal and recorded three shots during Washington's 3-1 win over the Islanders on Monday.
      Analysis: Andre Burakovsky has been given every opportunity to claim the second-line center role to start the season while Nicklas Backstrom (hip) works his way back to full health. Although the sophomore forward spent Monday centering what is likely to be Washington's third-line wingers in Brooks Laich and Tom Wilson, so far the former first-round pick has done nothing to dissuade the coaching staff from keeping him as a top-six forward for opening night. More experienced and physically stronger than a year ago, Burakovsky should remain a viable top-six forward throughout the season even once Backstrom returns, giving him plenty of sleeper value in most leagues, so keep an eye on him in later rounds of your draft.
    • Caps' Burakovsky To Play Center At Training Camp

      News: Capitals head coach Barry Trotz said Andre Burakovsky will get another crack at the center position during training camp, but anticipates "him being on the wing at some point", Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
      Analysis: Having spent the beginning of last season as the team's second-line center, Andre Burakovsky will get more work at the center position this training camp in light of first-line center Nicklas Backstrom's recovery following offseason hip surgery. Given that the second-line center job is now firmly in Evgeny Kuznetsov's grasp, Burakovsky's transition back to the wing at some point is all but certain, but the 20-year-old Swede is very much in the mix for a top-six role this season, and has some solid sleeper potential.
