Alexander Burmistrov has been hot since he was claimed by Arizona from the Winnipeg Jets.

Burmistrov has five assists in five games after recording two helpers in 23 contests with Winnipeg. It helps that he's averaging 16:47 minutes per game now, compared to the 11:02 minutes he was averaging with the Jets. Keep in mind he's a former eighth overall pick and isn't too old at 25, so while we wouldn't get too excited about him just yet, it is possible that this fresh opportunity will do him some long-term good.

Alexander Burmistrov will face the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night.

Look for Alexander Burmistrov to make his Arizona debut Monday.

Burmistrov had a long break as he was picked up on waivers from Winnipeg but couldn't get a work visa for a week-and-a-half. "I want to give him the best chance to be successful," coach Dave Tippett said. "Morning skates aren’t much for him, and he hasn’t skated in 10 days. So we’ll give him a couple more days skating, and hopefully the Edmonton game will be his first game." Burmistrov struggled in Winnipeg where he had only two assists in 23 games. He was drafted eighth overall in 2010 and was worth the waiver claim to see what he can do away from the Jets.

Alexander Burmistrov is not yet ready to return to action, according to coach Dave Tippett.

"He needs more time after not skating for a week," Tippett said. So Burmistrov will not make his Coyotes debut on Saturday.
