      Canucks' Alex Burrows: Returns to Vancouver

      Burrows has returned to Vancouver for personal reasons. "It's a good thing," coach Willie Desjardins indicated Sunday. Burrows' absence likely relates to the birth of a child or something along those lines, but it's something that probably won't keep him away from the team too long. However, his status for Monday's game remains unclear at this point.

      Canucks' Alex Burrows: Collects two assists in win

      Burrows dished out two assists in Saturday's overtime loss to the Red Wings. While he's only scored one goal, Burrows has had a decent start to the season, racking up six points in eight games. He's skating on the second line and seeing power-play time, so expect the points to continue flowing. One thing to note is Burrows has only fired 10 shots on goal thus far, so don't expect many more goals until he starts putting more pucks on net.

    • records two points in opener

      News: Alex Burrows registered a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-1 victory over the Flames while taking three shots on goal.
      Analysis: Alex Burrows skated predominantly on the third line with Jared McCann and Jannik Hansen, but that didn't stop him from putting up a multi-point effort to open the 2015-16 season. The feisty forward's upside is capped as long as he's denied a top-six role, but he has the skills to move up in the lineup if he can stay focused on putting pucks in the net.
    • Has quiet preseason

      News: Alex Burrows finished the 2015 NHL preseason with just one assist in five games.
      Analysis: It was a very quiet preseason for Alex Burrows, who fired just six shots on goal and finished with a minus-3 rating. As long as the 34-year-old can stick in a top-six role, he should have no problem finding twine. Burrows potted 18 goals in 70 games last season and had recorded at least 25 goals in each of the previous four full seasons. He doesn't rack up a ton of points, but Burrows puts up strong PIM totals and shoots the puck alot, so he's worth owning in many fantasy formats. If the former 35-goal scorer gets the chance to play with the Sedin twins, he could be in for a very productive season. He may be aging, but Burrows still has a lethal shot and can help in a variety of fantasy categories.

    • Canucks' Burrows Rib Injury Confirmed

      News: Alex Burrows confirmed Monday that the injury that kept him out of the Canucks' final three playoff games involved fractured and dislocated rib cartilage.
      Analysis: Per the report, Alex Burrows initially suffered the injury in Game 3 of the team's recent series against the Flames, and then aggravated the issue while taking a shot in practice. In any case, the 34-year-old winger -- who notched 18 goals, 33 points and 68 PIM in 70 regular season games for the Canucks in 2014-15 -- now has the entire offseason to heal up. He's under contract with the Canucks for two more seasons, at a cap hit of $4.5 million.
    • Canucks' Burrows Dealing With Rib Injury

      News: Alex Burrows (rib) was not present for practice Wednesday.
      Analysis: Per Dan Murphy of Sportsnet, Alex Burrows, who landed in a Calgary hospital after suffering a broken rib Tuesday, has yet to return to Vancouver, where the Canucks play on Thursday, so it appears safe to rule Burrows out for Game 5 of the team's opening round playoff series that evening.
