Alex Burrows is doing his best to isolate himself from the trade rumors.
"I've cut off my Twitter," Burrows said. "I've cut off TSN and Canadian websites. I watch ESPN right now. I'm more aware of the Charles Oakley incident and what happened in the NBA last night (than in the NHL). I'm a huge sports fan; I have to follow sports. But right now, I'm staying away from anything where my name could be." We're still a couple weeks away from the trade deadline, so this might not be a matter that's resolved quickly for Burrows. There's no guarantee that the Canucks will trade him at all, but they're presently shy of a playoff spot and Burrows is in the last season of his contract. That said, Burrows does have a no-trade clause, so at the end of the day, he would have to approve a move. Feb 14 - 6:30 AM

Alex Burrows picked up a goal and an assist on Sunday.

That's four points on the weekend as he also had a goal and a helper Saturday. He broke a 13 game pointless streak on Saturday and is now up to nine goals and 20 points in 50 games with 49 penalty minutes. He has benefited from the gain of Jannik Hansen to his line with Bo Horvat as the trio struck for 10 points in the two games. He is worth a look in deep leagues because of his penalty minutes.

Alex Burrows has been a huge help to Bo Horvat.

Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province writes that when both Horvat and Burrows are on the ice, the Canucks score at a 61.5 percent clip but when it's only Horvat, it drops to 40 percent. Burrows only had nine goals and 22 points in 79 games last season but already has seven goals and 16 points in 39 games this season.

There is still a slight chance that Alex Burrows (eye) will not return on Wednesday.

We previously reported that Burrows will return on Wednesday and that's almost certainly going to be true. However, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins put Burrows' chances of playing at 95%, so for the sake of being thorough we're passing along that he's not guaranteed to play. If he does return then Anton Rodin will be a healthy scratch.
Jan 4 - 3:30 PM

Alex Burrows will return to action Wednesday after missing one game with an eye injury.

The move should put Anton Rodin back in the press box. Burrows has seven goals and 15 points in 34 games and really isn't much of a fantasy asset in most pools.
Jan 4 - 10:17 AM

Alex Burrows isn't available on Monday due to a scratch in his eye.

Burrows has seven goals and 15 points in 34 contests in 2016-17. Anton Rodin will draw into the lineup as a result of Burrows' absence.
Jan 2 - 4:45 PM

Alex Burrows picked up a pair of helpers during Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over Dallas.

His two assists gives him four points on the season, all in the last three games. Burrows' high watermark in points is 33 over the last five seasons, indicating that perhaps we shouldn't expect too many more outbursts.

Alex Burrows scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the New York Rangers.

Burrows scored the go-ahead goal at the 9:21 mark of the of the third period to give Vancouver a 3-2 lead. He extended the Canucks lead to 5-2 just over 7:30 later. These were Burrow's first two goals and points of the 2016-17 season. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating and five shots on goal in 15:51 of ice time. It was a solid night for the veteran, but don't expect him to produce much this season. He isn't worth an add in standard fantasy leagues.

Alex Burrows will be back in the lineup from a neck injury on Wednesday.

It appears that this is just a healthy scratch, which is just as well. The veteran winger is pointless in five games thus far.
