Alexander Burmistrov will replace Mark Scheifele against the Blues on Saturday.

The Winnipeg Jets are actively shopping Alexander Burmistrov, according to Elliotte Friedman.

"There's an understanding this isn't working for either side right now, so the Jets are looking to see what they can get for him," Friedman explained. It'll be interesting to see what the Jets can get for the 25-year-old who has posted just 80 points since making his debut in 2010-11 (with Atlanta). Burmistrov dings the cap at a manageable $1.55M with a salary of just $1.6M.
Nov 5 - 9:55 PM

It appears that the Jets are open to the idea of trading Alexander Burmistrov.

With just 80 points since making his debut in 2010-11 (with Atlanta), and only one point in 10 games this season, it's not a surprise that the Jets would like to see if they can't flip the 25-year-old for an asset (or more). Burmistrov dings the cap at a manageable $1.55M with a salary of just $1.6M.

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

Alexander Burmistrov, Mark Stuart, and Scott Thorburn will be scratched against Carolina for Thursday's opener.

Through 275 career NHL games, Burmistrov has just 30 goals and 79 points. So the bloom is off the rose for the 24-year-old. The 32-year-old veteran Stuart however, posted 66 PIMs with 120 blocks and 162 hits in 64 games last season. Which could be pretty useful in the right pool.

The Winnipeg Jets will have some difficult decisions to make after Saturday's preseason finale against Minnesota.

The Jets currently have 20 forwards in training camp and they'll need to trim that number by at least six before the regular season begins next week. Adam Lowry, Andrew Copp, Alexander Burmistrov, Brandon Tanev, Marko Dano, Chris Thorburn, Anthony Peluso, Nic Petan and Chase De Leo are basically battling for two openings on the fourth line. Final decisions on the roster should be coming by Sunday or Monday.

Alexander Burmistrov's turnover led to Buffalo's Jack Eichel scoring the game-winning goal on Saturday afternoon.

The Jets jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but things fell apart as the game wore on. Burmistrov's turnover in the third period certainly didn't help. "I didn't see anybody around me," Burmistrov said. "So tried to chip it in to myself, between his stick... it's a turnover back and end up in the net. I feel bad of course." The loss means that the Jets are officially eliminated from playoff contention.

Alexander Burmistrov is going to play with Mathieu Perreault and Mark Scheifele on Tuesday night.

Coach Paul Maurice wants to keep his top line, consisting of Nikolaj Ehlers, Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler, together and he likes the trio of Andrew Ladd, Adam Lowry and Joel Armia, so Burmistrov is getting a chance to play on the second unit because of Drew Stafford's suspension.
