Fantasy Summary

Like many small, offensively talented players, Burke is a sink or swim at the next level. He could be the next Johnny Gaudreau or fizzle off like many similar players. Either way Burke plays a few years in the AHL.

Observations

April 2019- With 20 points in his first 48 games, Burke was adjusting and learning the pro game. No one was expecting him to put up the big numbers he put up in the WHL right away but lately Burke’s offensive game has started to come around. He has 11 points in his last 15 games, becoming a key member of the Tucson Roadrunners as they make a push for the playoff’s. Keith Duggan

March 2018- The Coyotes already have one of the top point producers from the WHL and they decided to add another, signing overage winger Brayden Burke to a three-year, entry-level contract. This season Burke has helped the Moose Jaw Warriors to the best record in the WHL, staying atop the standings most of the campaign. He’s currently second in the league in points, racking up 112 points (31 goals, 81 assists) in just 59 games. Burke was the first player to break the 100-point barrier in both the WHL and CHL this season. Much like fellow WHLer and Coyote prospect Tyler Steenbergen, Burke is undersized, generously listed at 5-11 and 165 pounds and that seems the main reason he was passed by in the NHL draft twice. What he lacks in size though, Burke makes up for in hockey I.Q. and offensive talent. He might be one of the best passers in junior hockey and possesses good acceleration and skating mobility. Burke seems worth the risk with the NHL all about speed and skill now and personally it seems odd he went this long undrafted or unsigned. He does get knocked off the puck easily and his defensive zone play needs work, so Burke is a project but has plenty of skill. Keith Duggan
