The Avalanche acquired Andre Burakovsky from the Capitals for Scott Kosmachuk, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2020-third-round pick.
Burakovsky was picked No.23 overall back in 2013 but has yet to top 40 points in five NHL seasons. In his defence, Burakovsky has never played more than 13:50 TOI/gm, so the Avalanche will see what he can do for them in a larger role. The 24-year-old has tremendous speed, a great shot but had just 12 goals and 13 assists (25 points) in 76 games a season ago.
Burakovsky will be back in the Capitals lineup on Monday.
Burakovsky has been a healthy scratch for the last two games but will replace Nic Dowd on Monday. Burakovsky has not had a good season, scoring just five goals with four assists (nine points) in 38 games this season.

Burakovsky has been demoted to the Capitals' third line in Detroit.
Burakovsky has just two assists in seven games in the Capitals’ top-6 so he was moved to the third line with Tom Wilson taking his spot with Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie. Burakovsky will be difficult to trust in fantasy circles while he’s outside the top-6.
