Andre Burakovsky is hoping that the 2015-16 season was a good learning experience.
"Sometimes, it's good to have those ups and downs," Burakovsky said. "It's good to have, so you learn how to get out of them real quick because everyone's going to have downs. It's just reality. It's just how it is. But the thing you want to learn and thing you want to do is get rid of them quick. I think my down was maybe 10, 15 games, and that's something you have to get rid of quick. That's something I've been working on this year, and I think it helped to have a little bit of a down." After a sluggish start, Burakovsky exploded for 29 of his 38 points in the last 45 games of the regular season. Jun 15 - 9:34 AM
