Andre Burakovsky has four goals and seven points in his last five games.

He has been playing with Brent Connolly and Lars Eller and the trio have been playing well together. "That line is really coming," coach Barry Trotz said. "They’re producing. They make it really convenient for me at times when they’re going the way they are right now, that I can get away from matchups even on the road with the [Jay] Beagle line, the Eller line. What it does also is drive the other guys. They’re used to getting X amount of minutes, and it gives me the opportunity to go, ‘No, you’re not getting them unless you pick up the pace a little bit.’ They deserve to get more ice time. They’ve produced chances and they’re working hard and they’re getting results." Burakovsky has nine goals and 22 points in 43 games and is a plus-eight to boot. He has some value in deeper pools thanks to his recent hot streak.

Last season, he got off to a similarly slow start, but managed to get hot in the second half of the year. He's someone to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues.
