Burmistrov Likely To Return To Jets In 2015-16

News: Alex Burmistrov, who is playing in the KHL but remains under Jets' control, will "almost certainly return to (the) NHL," according to Igor Eronko of Sports.ru.
Analysis: The young forward said "next summer will be defining" when he talked about returning to the NHL. He seemed to have issues with former Jets coach, Claude Noel, before he left for the KHL, but Noel is long gone, replaced by Paul Maurice. Alex Burmistrov had 10 goals and 37 points with Ak-Bars of the KHL in 2013-14.

Former Jet Burmistrov Lighting up KHL

News: Alex Burmistrov has six points in his first seven games with AK-Bars Kazan of the KHL, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Though Alex Burmistrov's hot play means little to NHL fantasy pools, some think it will give the Jets added trade value that would make an impact on the team's roster in the future.

Jets' Burmistrov Headed To KHL

News: Alex Burmistrov has signed a two-year deal with Ak-Bars Kazan of the KHL, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov notched 10 points in 44 games for the Jets this past season, so his departure won't cause much of a fantasy wave. Meanwhile, the Jets will retain his NHL rights.

Jets' Burmistrov Scoreless Again

News: Alex Burmistrov failed to post any points in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov has taken a step back this year and has just three points since the end of February, including a paltry one assist during the entire month of March. Though he has points in two of the last three games, the Sabres blanked him again. That's an all too familiar story for fantasy owners who drafted him hoping he'd show some consistency scoring wise this year. Due to his performance and third-line role on the Jets' depth chart, Burmistrov is not worth an add for your fantasy playoff run.

Jets' Burmistrov May Sit Tuesday

News: Alex Burmistrov is a candidate to sit out Tuesday's game against the Leafs, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov, who played a season-low 9:22 Sunday against the Devils, has not recorded a point in his last six games.

Jets' Burmistrov Scores Second Goal In Loss To Bruins

News: Alex Burmistrov logged a goal and an assist in Sunday night's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov also finished with a plus-1 rating on Sunday. In the last two seasons he was touted as the kind of player who had enough skill to be really good. Although a slow third year is not necessarily a career killer for players his age, if you picked him as a sleeper in your league thinking he might arrive as a big time fantasy talent this year, Sunday's performance offers a small glimmer of hope for you. That said, don't wait too much longer as there are other young guns to be had this year that are producing at a higher clip than Burmistrov, even in deep leagues.

Jets' Burmistrov Breaks Slump In Win Over Isles

News: Alex Burmistrov managed his first point of the season, a goal, in Sunday night's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov is one of those players the Jets' organization expects to take the next step in his career this season and become the playmaker they know he can be. If you own him in your fantasy league, the shortened season may hinder your willingness to hold onto him long enough to realize the potential benefits of his abilities. Watch him closely to see if his first goal sets off a streak of consistency on a young team that looks very confident right now.

Jets' Burmistrov Still Pointless In Win Over Pens

News: Alex Burmistrov did not register a point in Friday's 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Analysis: When a player reaches his third year in the big leagues, expectations rise as potential is suppose to start turning into production. Though Alex Burmistrov has speed and skill, he has no points and an even rating in four games this season and it seems that he may find himself on the third or fourth line on a regular basis with the added depth that the Jets acquired at the forward position over the extended off-season. Though having an eye for young guns on the waiver wire can make or break a fantasy title run, it's best to stay away from Burmistrov until it becomes evident he has figured out the NHL game.

Jets' Burmistrov Seems A Full Go

News: Alex Burmistrov was checked out by doctors in Winnipeg after a lingering shoulder injury during the lockout and seems to be good to go, Mitch Peacock of CBC Sports tweeted.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov was struggling with a shoulder injury during the lockout but was present at the start of camp. With the addition of Olli Jokinen and the emergence of Kyle Wellwood, he will struggle to crack the top six. Centering Nik Antropov and Alexei Ponikarovsky on the third line will likely be where he begins the year and that is still a talented group that will be asked to produce. He registered 11 points over 22 games in the AHL during the lockout.

Jets' Burmistrov Returns To Winnipeg With Upper Body Injury

News: Alex Burmistrov has returned to Winnipeg after sustaining an upper body injury while playing with the AHL St. John's IceCaps, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: The extent of Alex Burmistrov's injury is not immediately known, but the Jets opted to have him come in for a checkup with a four-day break in the St. John's schedule. Burmistrov had been durable for the IceCaps prior to suffering the injury, appearing in all 22 of the team's games.

Jets' Burmistrov: No Points In Loss To Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins

News: Alex Burmistrov had no points and a minus-3 rating in a 5-3 loss to Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Saturday night.
Analysis: Saturday's performance gives Alex Burmistrov just two goals in 22 AHL games this season and drops his plus/minus rating to minus-2 on the season. Anybody hoping he'd dominate in the minors and set himself up for a breakout year once the NHL is back playing may have to curb their enthusiasm a little bit.

Jets' Burmistrov: No Points In Win Over Bears

News: Alex Burmistrov had two shots on a goal and four minutes in penalties in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Hershey Bears.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov has just two goals in 13 games this season but his seven points on the season is just about on par for the kind of production we would normally expect from him at the NHL level. It remains to be seen whether there will be a big league season at this point.

IceCaps' Burmistrov: Shutout In Loss To Norfolk

News: Alex Burmistrov had four shots on goal in the IceCaps' 2-0 loss to Norfolk on Sunday.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov has six points in 10 AHL games this season to go with a plus-1 rating. He is expected to take his game up a notch whenever the NHL resumes play this year. When that is going to happen is anybody's guess.

IceCaps' Burmistrov: No Points Versus Flyers

News: Alex Burmistrov did not manage any points and put three shots on goal to go with two minutes in penalties during Friday's 2-1 win over the Adirondack Flyers.
Analysis: He did manage two assists in his second game of the season and will be counted on heavily to make plays and provide scoring punch up front.

Burmistrov Pointless In IceCaps Debut

News: Alex Burmistrov finished with a minus-1 rating and two minutes in the penalty box Saturday.
Analysis: He's an up-and-coming young gun who showed definite improvement in his sophomore NHL season. If and when the lockout ends, he'll be someone to keep an eye on.

Jets Send Burmistrov To AHL

News: Alex Burmistrov was assigned to the AHL St. John's IceCaps on Saturday, reports TSN.ca, just hours before an impending NHL lockout.
Analysis: The 20-year-old will get to grow his game in the A, not unlike the young stars who did the same the last time there was an NHL lockout. He had 13 goals and 28 points in 76 games with the Jets last year.

Winnipeg's Burmistrov Picks Up Two Points

News: Alex Burmistrov earned a goal and an assist Monday night as the Jets lost to the visiting Oilers, 5-3.
Analysis: There exist high hopes for the young Alex Burmistrov in Winnipeg's front office, meaning he will get plenty of looks so long as he wears a Jets uniform. Though his production is streaky to say the least, there is more than a little potential here.

Winnipeg's Burmistrov Records 12th Goal Of Season

News: Alex Burmistrov netted the first of four Jets goals in Friday night's home win over the Bruins.
Analysis: The young Russian seems to be doing enough in the eyes of head coach Claude Noel to keep a spot on the club's second offensive line. If the trend continues, Alex Burmistrov is in for a spike in scoring chances.

Jets' Burmistrov Returns To Lineup

News: Alex Burmistrov, after missing a pair of games with concussion symptoms, made his return to action Thursday night. The 20 year-old Russian recorded one shot on net.
Analysis: Until Alex Burmistrov graduates to a spot above the club's seldom-used fourth line, he will not see the ice enough to make a fantasy impact.

Winnipeg's Burmistrov (Concussion) A Game-Time Decision For Thursday

News: Alex Burmistrov (concussion), who said after a morning skate that he had "no symptoms," is considered a game-time decision by head coach Claude Noel and the team's medical staff for Thursday night's contest in Tampa, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Injuries have hampered the 20-year old Russian mightily this year. If he can return to the level he was producing at towards the beginning of the season, he could make for a viable fantasy option. Until then, however, he should not make his way into your starting lineup.

Winnipeg's Burmistrov (Upper Body) Scratched For Tuesday

News: Alex Burmistrov (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game in Philadelphia but looks to return to action before Winnipeg finishes its upcoming four-game road stint, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: When Alex Burmistrov eventually does make his return, he will not be stepping into a fantasy friendly situation. The former first-round pick has produced only nine goals all season and does not see enough ice time to make a sizable statistical impact.

Jets' Burmistrov A Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Alex Burmistrov will be a game-time decision Tuesday night, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: He suffered an upper-body injury in Monday's game and is considered day-to-day. The Jets have provided very little information regarding the nature of Alex Burmistrov's injury.

Winnipeg's Burmistrov Lights Lamp In Shootout Loss

News: Alex Burmistrov scored the third of three Winnipeg goals as the Jets fell to the Panthers in a Saturday matchup that ended with a shootout.
Analysis: The goal was Alex Burmistrov's ninth of the season, and while it was crucial in keeping the Jets alive Saturday night, the 2010 first-round draft selection is not currently an advisable fantasy play. He has seen a drop-off in his playing time as of late, and rarely rotates in with the club's top six forwards.

Winnipeg's Burmistrov Returns To Action Versus Sharks

News: Alex Burmistrov, after sitting out two games with an undisclosed injury, returned to the Jets lineup Thursday night.
Analysis: Alex Burmistrov's uninspired play over the past few months has gotten him relegated to Winnipeg's third offensive line. With the demotion comes less ice-time and fewer scoring chances. He is not currently a viable fantasy choice.
