Alexander Burmistrov scored a power-play goal in the team's 7-1 home loss against Nashville.

Apparently Burmistrov doesn't want to spend any more time in the press box.

He might need a little more production to completely exit Travis Green's doghouse, but this was a start.

The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Alexander Burmistrov to a one-year deal.

The former Arizona Coyote did not get a qualifying offer and was on the UFA market where he will get 900,000 from the Canucks. He has not been a stud to say the least after being drafted eighth overall in 2010. Look for a 35-40 point season in Vancouver for the Russian.

Alexander Burmistrov has a three-game point streak.

Burmistrov recorded an assist in the Coyotes' 3-2 overtime loss to Dallas on Tuesday. He's up to four goals and 15 points in 47 contests this season. Those numbers might not be impressive, but he has 13 points in 24 games since joining Arizona, which has been giving him an average of 15:19 minutes of ice time per game. Before that he was with Winnipeg, which had been using him for an average of just 11:02 minutes per contest. With that in mind he's something of a sleeper candidate for the 2017-18 campaign.
