Washington has called up Andre Burakovsky.

The Capitals sent Burakovsky to the minors after acquiring Curtis Glencross, but Michael Latta's upper-body injury prompted them to reverse course. Burakovsky has nine goals and 21 points in 48 games with Washington this season.

Andre Burakovsky has been reassigned to the minors.

He is the odd-man out after the Capitals acquired Curtis Glencross from Calgary. Burakovsky, who has nine goals and 21 points in 48 games this season, will get plenty of playing time with Hershey. It's unclear how long he'll be down in the AHL.
Mar 2 - 3:54 PM

Andre Burakovsky will be back in the Caps lineup Wednesday night versus Pittsburgh.

After being a healthy scratch in Sunday’s loss to the Flyers, head coach Barry Trotz will insert the 20-year-old back onto the Caps top line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. Burakovsky has skated in 45 games this season, posting nine goals and 12 assists with a plus 12 rating. But what’s more telling is the fact that the Capitals are 7-0-0 in their last seven games when he’s in the lineup and 0-4-1 when he’s a healthy scratch. Time will tell if Trotz will keep him in the lineup more regularly but based on those records, it’d be foolish to leave him out.

In 40 games with the Capitals this season, the 19-year-old rookie has seven goals and 19 points. He was sent down so that Washington could recall goaltender Philipp Grubauer, who is slated to start Friday night. It's probable that Burakovsky will be brought back up soon once Grubaur goes back down.
Feb 6 - 3:09 PM

Andre Burakovsky is a late scratch Wednesday night against the Penguins.

Head Coach Barry Trotz hinted that some lineup changes would be made Wednesday and sure enough, he followed through. Burakovsky had been skating on the Caps' top line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom but Trotz will insert Jay Beagle in his spot Wednesday. The youngster has seven goals and 12 assists in 38 games this season and this will be a situation to monitor going forward.

Andre Burakovsky scored a goal in Washington's 4-3 victory against Florida on Sunday.

Burakovsky went from being a healthy scratch in the Capitals' previous two games to playing on a line with Alex Ovechkin. "When I come back I want to show coach I don't belong in the stands," Burakovsky said. "I never want to be in the stands and watch the games I always want to be on the ice and play." Burakovsky has struggled in the first half of the season, but he's worth keeping a close eye on going forward.
Jan 5 - 11:06 AM

Andre Burakovsky will line up with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the top line Sunday.

Burakovsky has been a bottom six forward or sitting in the press box of late and that's no spot for someone of his age and offensive potential. Jay Beagle and Tom Wilson have been playing the wing on the line with Ovechkin and Backstrom of late but that will change in the game against Florida. Take Burakovsky, especially in keeper pools.
