After missing almost a full month of the season, complementary player Alex Burrows will return to the Vancouver Canucks lineup.  Originally sidelined because of offseason shoulder surgery, the 29-year-old is expected to play against the Edmonton Oilers in what is the second of back-to-back games.

As of right now it is unknown if the winger is 100 percent or returning to a line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin.  So far the team has used Mason Raymond, Mikael Samuelsson and most recently Jeff Tambellini on the top line.

Last season, Burrows potted career highs of 35 goals and 67 points playing primarily with the twins.  He showed the ability to produce in literally every fantasy category last season as he has averaged over 100 PIM-per-season over his career.
