  • Burmistrov will tag into the lineup against the Sharks on Saturday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Burmistrov has been making the most out of his limited ice time this season, adding one goal and four assists despite averaging 12:11 over 14 games. On the downside, the Canucks have taken away his power-play opportunities and that's a serious drawback to streaming him as a low-end flier in daily fantasy contests.

  • Canucks' Alex Burmistrov: Two points Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Burmistrov scored a goal and dished out a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Ottawa. Burmistrov played a part in each of his team's first two goals, assisting on Brock Boeser's power-play tally late in the first period before potting his first goal of the season late in the second. The eighth overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft will turn 26 this Saturday, so he still has time to turn around what has been a disappointing career so far.

  • Burmistrov signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Canucks on Saturday, TSN reports. Flush with cap space, Canucks GM Jim Benning made Burmistrov his fifth signing of the day; he's also reeled in forward Sam Gagner, defensemen Patrick Wiercioch and Michael Del Zotto, and netminder Anders Nilsson. The rapid ascension of Mark Scheifele made Burmistrov expendable, so he was traded to Arizona last season and picked up 14 points (five goals, nine assists) in 26 games. Still, he's been on a downward spiral ever since recording career highs in goals (13), assists (15) and a plus-4 rating with Winnipeg in 2011-12.

  • Burmistrov picked up an assist and plus-1 rating in Tuesday's game against the Stars. Burmistrov has managed three goals and an assist over his past three outings. The three-game point streak is actually a season high, so that tells you a little bit about how his 2016-17 campaign has been going. However, he's worth a look as a low-cost DFS option in the two remaining regular-season contests.

  • Burmistrov scored two goals with a plus-1 rating in Friday's 6-3 victory against the Capitals. Burmistrov entered with just one goal through his first 44 games with the Jets and Coyotes, so this performance isn't likely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. It's too late in the game to consider adding Burmistrov, although he isn't a bad DFS sleeper since he has four points over the past six outings.
