Alexandre Burrows finished with a game-high five shots on goal in the Canucks’ 1-0 loss to Calgary on Saturday night.

He also had two penalty minutes in 15:45. Burrows used to be a solid supplementary player for fantasy purposes, but with just nine goals and 17 points, he’s not worth rostering at this point. The first step would be to replicate that kind of shot total. Derek Dorsett had five penalty minutes.

Alex Burrows has been moved back up to the top line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin.

Canucks coach Willie Desjardins isn't satisfied with the team's even-strength play and he's hoping this move will spark them. "I think Burrows has been good on that line in the past," said Desjardins. "We haven't used it for a while. I've tried to balance our lines, to where I see different combinations at. It might be a chance to see that combination." Burrows' gain is Radim Vrbata's loss though as he's being moved off the first line. This will have a meaningful impact on both players' fantasy value if this proves to be a long-term change.

Alex Burrows picked up his ninth goal of the season Thursday night, but the Canucks fell to the Kings 3-2.

Alex Burrows scored twice as the Canucks took care of the Coyotes 7-1 on Monday.

They were two of the odder and luckier goals you'll ever see, but they count just as much as a snipe from the dots. Fun fact, Burrows scored the first goal on both Mike Smith and Devan Dubnyk in this game. The latter was on the power play as well. He now has eight goals and 15 points on the season.

Alex Burrows received a promotion and a demotion on Friday.

First the good news. Burrows will see action on the first power play as he will stand in front of the net. The bad news is that he will see fourth line duty during five-on-five situations as he has switched with Jannik Hansen will now go to Burrows old spot on the second line. Burrows has six goals and six assists in 26 games so you have to be in a pretty deep league for Burrows to have any fantasy value.

In the game's opening minute he intercepted an Alex Pietrangelo touch-pass to TJ Oshie and was in 2-on-1 with Chris Higgins who would eventually put it home. Later in the third, he'd begin another rush that finished with Nick Bonino giving the Canucks a 2-1 lead, they'd go on to win 4-1.
