Alex Burrows (lower body) will be a game time decision on Sunday.

Burrows was a late scratch on Friday after he tried to go in the pre-game skate. The Canucks are hoping the missed game and a day off on Saturday will allow him to play Sunday. He had been on a line with the Sedin twins but Zack Kassian took full advantage of Burrows' injury and potted the only two Vancouver goals Friday, so Burrows could find himself on another line to start the contest if he plays.

Alex Burrows missed Friday's tilt with the Devils because he was sidelined with a lower body injury.

Burrows is having a nice season with a dozen goals, 25 points, 47 PIMs, and 57 hits through 52 games this season. He is not expected to miss much time.

Alex Burrows records an assist in a 3-2 win against the Minnesota Wild Monday night.

Burrows has 12 goals and 25 points in 51 games this season. He's bounced back somewhat from his rough 2013-14 campaign, but his days of consistently surpassing the 25-goal mark seem to be over.
Feb 17 - 11:34 AM

Alex Burrows scored and assisted in the Canucks’ 5-0 win over the Penguins on Saturday night.

Life is good when you play with the Sedins. Burrows scored a power-play goal in the first period, then assisted on Daniel’s late in the third. Burrows has 12 goals and 23 points this year, and is worth a look while he plays on this line. Zack Kassian, Bo Horvat Shawn Matthias picked up the other goals. Radim Vrbata recorded two assists. Kassian also had five penalty minutes.

Alex Burrows found the back of the net in a 3-2 overtime victory against Winnipeg.

Burrows has 11 goals and 21 points in 44 contests this season. That's not a great pace and he's been slowing down lately. He has just five points in 13 contests since the start of January.
Feb 4 - 6:29 AM

Alex Burrows recorded an assist in a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

Burrows has recorded a point in three of his last four contests. That gives him 10 goals and 20 points in 40 games in 2014-15. He should more or less maintain his pace of 0.5 points per contest for the rest of the season.

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.
Jan 5 - 5:06 PM

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

Burrows scored one of his typical dirty power play goals as he slammed home a rebound from within the blue paint to open the scoring midway through the first. He's now tied with Jannik Hansen for second on the team in goals with nine to go along with his 17 points.
Jan 2 - 1:23 AM

Alex Burrows had an assist in a 2-1 overtime loss to Anaheim.

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.

Alexandre Burrows scored his fifth goal of the year in the Canucks' 2-0 win over New Jersey on Tuesday.

Burrows returned from an upper-body injury to get the game-winning goal for the Canucks. In an emotional night were the franchise honored the late Pat Quinn, it was Burrows who rose the occasion for the Canucks. Considering he scored five goals in all of last season, it's a clear a good sign. Shawn Matthias scored the insurance marker for the Canucks.
