Burrows joined the Senators via trade in February 2017, heading to Ottawa from Vancouver in exchange for prospect Jonathan Dahlen.
The 37-year-old went on to post 25 points through 91 games in a Senators jersey, 14 of those coming in 2017-18.
He had one year remaining on a two-year deal which would’ve paid him $2.5 million in 2018-19. Ottawa will save $833,333 as a result of the buyout.
