Alex Burrows spent the majority of the 2016-17 campaign with the Canucks, registering 20 points (nine goals, 11 assists) and 114 shots on goal in 55 games before being dealt to the Senators in late February. The veteran winger finished the season strong with his new club, notching 11 points (six goals, five assists) in 20 games. Burrows will likely skate in a bottom-six role while Ottawa is at even strength next season to limit his ice time, but he'll also likely occupy a spot on the second power-play unit, which should bolster his offensive production. The 36-year-old forward has limited upside, but if he's able to avoid major injury in 2017-18, he could return 30 or so points alongside a credible PIM total, making him a decent bench option in deeper fantasy leagues.
Burrows (ankle) will be ready when training camp begins Thursday. The former Canuck was forced to miss the final four games of Ottawa's Eastern Conference finals defeat at the hands of the Penguins, but he was able to make a full recovery in the offseason. Burrows was rejuvenated once traded to the Sens in the middle of the 2016-17 campaign, scoring six goals and 11 points in 20 games after recording just four goals and 10 points in 33 games for Vancouver. It may be too much to expect a 40-point season from Burrows in 2017-18, but he should establish himself as a regular in the lineup and finish with around 30 points.
Burrows (ankle) was unable to rejoin the lineup and missed Ottawa's last four outings of the season. Prior to getting hurt, Burrows had a somewhat disappointing postseason as he went goalless in all 15 outings while tallying just five helpers. Since joining the Senators, the winger potted 11 points in 20 contests, but was unable to consistently contribute in the playoffs. The 36-year-old will now turn his attention to getting ready for the 2017-18 season, which figures to be his first full campaign in the red and black.
Burrows (lower body) will not draw into the lineup for Thursday's Game 7 against the Penguins. Burrows will remain sidelined for a fourth consecutive contest, and if Ottawa can't pull out the win Thursday, his last game will have been Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. Chris Kelly is slated to draw back into the lineup with Burrows still on the mend.
Burrows (lower body) will not play in Tuesday's Game 6 clash with Pittsburgh, Brent Wallace of TSN Ottawa reports. Burrows will miss his third straight game will dealing with this upper-body ailment. The 36-year-old has yet to record a goal in his 15 postseason outings, but he's notched five helpers while averaging 14:23 of ice time. Fantasy owners will be hoping the Sens can extend the series to a Game 7; otherwise, it will be the end of the road for the winger this year.
Burrows (lower body) didn't practice Monday, Brent Wallace of TSN reports. After missing the last two games, it's a bad sign for the winger to miss practice, and makes his return Tuesday seem less likely. That said, his status will likely be outlined further as puck drop gets closer.
