      Jets' Alex Burmistrov: Falls to fourth line

      Burmistrov skated with the fourth line during practice Wednesday, Paul Wiecek of the Winnipeg Free Press reports. The 24-year old Russian is playing his fourth NHL season, but his first since 2012-13 after spending the past two seasons playing for Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL. Burmistrov has only four points this year, and scored half of them in the first game if the season, along with being a plus-4 in the contest. In the 15 games since, Burmistrov is a minus-7 and has put only 20 shots on net. It isn't surprising that head coach Paul Maurice demoted Burmistrov to the fourth line, the surprise is that it took him this long to do so.

      Winnipeg Jets' Alex Burmistrov Picks up two points in opener

      Burmistrov netted two points in the season opener against Boston on Thursday, picking up a secondary assist and an empty-net goal. He finished plus-4 with two PIM. Maybe they weren't the most impressive points Burmistrov will earn this year, but the young Russian skated 17:41 and stuffed the stat sheet, demonstrating the sort of fantasy potential that he brings in his return to the NHL. Burmistrov may have flown a bit under the radar in most fantasy drafts this year, but he makes for an appetizing waiver-wire add in the early going.

      Analysis: Alex Burmistrov, the former No. 8 overall pick by the Jets in 2010 when the franchise was still located in Atlanta, will make his return to North America after spending the past two seasons with Kazan Ak-Bars of the KHL. The 23-year-old bolted for Russia in the summer of 2013 due in part to his lack of harmony with coach Claude Noel, but with Paul Maurice since taking over the helm for the Jets, it appears any discord has dissipated. Burmistrov never turned in outstanding production during his previous time in the minors or in the NHL, but now that's a little older, he could be a potential second- or third-line asset for the Jets.
