Burrows returns to Vancouver for the first time since being traded


Alexandre Burrows will hit the ice tonight at Rogers Arena for the first time since being traded to the Ottawa Senators last season.

The Senators fell just short of making it to the Stanley Cup Finals, losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime in game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

For Burrows, there will be no shortage of memories coming back to Rogers Arena, but fans might remember him best from when he scored in overtime in game 7 back in 2011 to finally propel the Canucks past the Chicago Blackhawks.

From the Canucks Twitter, it appears there are some Canucks that are looking forward to seeing Burrows.

The Canucks will be looking to build from their first win of the season, in which they beat Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers by a score of 3-2.

Puck drop is set for 7:00 PM tonight and the Canucks will have 2 more home games remaining after tonight.

The first road game of the season will be a rematch in Ottawa against the Senators on October 17th at the Canadian Tire Centre
