Look for Alexander Burmistrov to get get the first crack at replacing injured center Bryan Little.
Little suffered a significant lower-body injury in Winnipeg's opener against Carolina. He'll be out for some time. Burmistrov, who was a healthy scratch in that game, will now get an opportunity to show the team that he's capable of playing a major role. "I’ll come back and do whatever I can," said Burmistrov. "I’m not 18 years old anymore. I know what’s going on and I just have to continue to work (hard)." The 24-year-old has plenty of skill, but that hasn't translated to many points at the NHL level. Last season, he had seven goals and 21 points in 81 games. He has no value in standard fantasy leagues. Oct 15 - 8:11 AM
