The rugged forward is listed as day-to-day, which also means Vancouver will take their precious time. Burrows has five goals, 11 points, 26 PIMs and 34 hits in 35 games thus far.

Alex Burrows is fully recovered from the injured ribs he suffered during the playoffs.

He has been skating with prospects Jake Virtanen and Cole Cassels in the early part of training camp. Burrows will probably see some preseason action with them, but when the regular season begins he is likely to play on one of the Canucks' top-two lines. That will either place him alongside the Sedin twins or with newcomer Brandon Sutter.
