Burmistrov Is Heating Up

Winnipeg forward Alex Burmistrov has tallied seven points in eight games this year.

Analysis: Although the Jets are just 2-5-1 with a negative ten goal differential, Burmistrov is plus four on the year. After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign as an eighteen/nineteen year old the former first round pick has delivered this year. His shot totals and power play points may be a little on the lighter side of things but his point production, plus/minus and ice time is here to stay.

Burmistrov is still available in eighty percent of fantasy leagues nationwide and he’s going fast. He’s always going to hurt you in penalty minutes but putting that aside, Burmistov is developing into a point-per-game player. He’s still far from a point-per-game guy but you can see his potential is extremely high. Whether he’s playing on the wing or at center he is an offensive force and his play this year has quieted the critics. He’s not just a deep league add but he still can be inconsistent at times and patience is a key when owning the Russian.
