Burrows missed Saturday’s game against the Maple Leafs, but will be back tomorrow vs. the Flyers. Burrows was skating with Brad Richardson and Chris Higgins this morning, so expect him to be on that third line tomorrow. He has 25 points (12G / 13A) in 56 games this season.
Burrows (groin) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.
Burrows has missed the last six games, but it looks like he will return tonight in warmups. He took part in line rushes in the Canucks top-6 and Willie Desjardins said a couple players will return tonight, but didn’t sat whom. Presumably that will but Burrows, who has 25 points (12G / 13A) in 52 games this season.
Burrows was skating with Daniel and Henrik Sedin at Canucks’ practice this afternoon. It looks more like a move to have Radim Vrbata jump-start the second line, but either way, Burrows gets a chance to play with the Sedin’s again. Burrows has three goals and three assists in his last eight games.
Burrows (upper-body) will return to the Canucks lineup on Tuesday.
Burrows has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury, but will be back in the lineup on Tuesday. He will likely re-join the second line with Nick Bonino and Chris Higgins. Linden Vey is expected to come out of the lineup.

Burrows (upper-body) did not practice on Saturday.
Head coach Willie Desjardins did not have an update on Burrows upper-body injury after practice, but his absence this afternoon puts his status for Sunday’s game in doubt. With Burrows out, Linden Vey skated in the top-6 again.
Burrows has served his three game suspension and will play Thursday.
Burrows was suspended for his hit on Alexei Emelin on October 30th, he had to sit the last three games but will be back in the lineup tonight in San Jose. He has two goals and four assists in 10 games. Along with Nick Bonino and Chris Higgins, the Canucks second line has been providing a lot of secondary scoring to start the year.
The NHL has suspended Alex Burrows for three games for his hit on Alexei Emelin on Thursday.
Burrows caught Emelin with a nasty elbow last night and it will cost him three games. He will miss the Canucks back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday as well as next Tuesday's game vs. Colorado. He is eligible to return on Thursday in San Jose. With Burrows out, Jannik Hansen moved up to the second line.
Burrows only missed Sunday's game with a thumb injury. He will return tonight having scored five goals and four assists in his last six games. He will likely skate on a line with Daniel Sedin and Shawn Matthias.
Burrows (thumb) will not play Sunday and could miss an extended period of time.
The original diagnosis on Burrows' thumb injury is "not good" according to GM Mike GIllis. With just 10 games remaining on the Canucks schedule, there is a chance that Burrows could be done for the rest of the regular season. Burrows was featured on our first instalment of 'The Fantasy Minute' as someone who makes for a good pick-up, that obviously is not the case anymore.
Burrows is battling a sore foot after blocking a shot on Saturday, but head coach John Tortorella said that Burrows will battle through it and play vs. the Isles tonight. Burrows has been terrible this season. He is still searching for his first goal of the season and he has only five assist with a minus-14 rating in 34 games. He is played nearly 20 minutes a night alongside Henrik Sedin, but the four-time 20-plus goal scorer can't buy a goal right now.
