Forward Andre Burakovsky, Washington's first-round pick (No. 23) at the 2013 NHL Draft, has realistic aspirations of challenging for a roster spot come training camp in September.
The 19-year-old Swede thrived in his first season with Erie in the OHL, posting 41 goals and 87 points in 57 games. "I'm going to do whatever it takes to have a chance to play some games in the NHL," Burakovsky said. "I had the chance to play some games last year, some preseason [games], I think I did really good there and I think the OHL was really good for me too. I think I might be ready to at least try to take the next step to the NHL." Burakovsky was able to distinguish himself with his quick release. "What really separated him was his wrist shot when he was on the rush," Erie coach Kris Knoblauch said. "He scored numerous goals just using the defenseman as a screen and shooting it through his legs and beating the goaltender. With his wrist shot that's certainly something that the other players, as good as they were, couldn't do." Jul 13 - 11:55 AM
