VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks left wing Alex Burrows will return from long-term injured reserve Tuesday against the Oilers in Edmonton.

Burrows has already missed the Canucks' first nine games of the season following offseason shoulder surgery, and will also not play Monday at home against New Jersey.

The 29-year-old tallied a team-high 35 goals to go with 32 assists in 82 regular season games in 2009-10.

Burrows also posted three goals and six points in 12 playoff contests, but the Canucks were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals in six games by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
