Alexander Burmistrov sustained an upper-body injury on Friday.

Burmistrov is regarded as day-to-day as a result. He has a goal and 11 points in 40 contests in 2016-17.
Feb 25 - 4:16 AM

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 registered two assists in a 3-2 overtime win over Florida.

Burmistrov has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five games. He has no goals and seven assists in 28 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 24 - 10:00 AM

Alexander Burmistrov will face the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night.

He is projected to play between Tobias Rieder and Radim Vrbata because Martin Hanzal is unavailable due to a family matter. That would be a big opportunity for Burmistrov against his former team. He picked up an assist in his Coyotes debut on Monday versus Edmonton.

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.
Jan 15 - 7:19 AM

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.

Alexander Burmistrov and Kevin Connauton will be scratched against the Jets on Friday.

It would have been sweet for Burmistrov to avenge himself against his former club, but it was not to be. He's still working his way through the system and has yet to impress coach Dave Tippett in practice just yet.

Alexander Burmistrov has resolved his work visa situation, but he won't play on Friday.

That will give Burmistrov a bit of time to settle in with the Coyotes after being claimed off waivers and then going through the visa process. Burmistrov might make his Coyotes debut on Saturday.
Jan 13 - 3:41 PM

Alexander Burmistrov's work visa situation could be settled soon, but it's unclear if he will be available for Friday's game against his former team.

The Winnipeg Jets visit Arizona on Friday night. Burmistrov spent parts of five seasons with the Atlanta/Winnipeg organization before he was claimed off waivers by the Coyotes on Jan. 2.
Jan 13 - 10:45 AM

Alexander Burmistrov is still waiting for a work visa.

The 25-year-old was claimed off waivers from Winnipeg and needs a work visa to play in the United States. The Coyotes are on a five day break so he should be ready to practice Thursday when the team reconvenes for Friday's contest. Burmistrov has just two assists in 23 games this season so his fantasy value is zero.
Jan 8 - 7:57 AM

Alexander Burmistrov, Anthony DeAngelo, and Kevin Connauton will be scratched from Friday's match with Anaheim.

Burmistrov is still working through work visa troubles, and DeAngelo is still suspended. So only Connauton is eligible to play for the Coyotes tonight, but he won't. He has a point along with 21 hits in 10 games thus far.
Jan 6 - 9:23 PM

Alexander Burmistrov will not play Wednesday as he has yet to get a work visa.

Burmistrov will meet up with the team in Vancouver as the Coyotes play the Canucks. Burmistrov was claimed off waivers Monday from Winnipeg where he had just two assists in 23 games. He was drafted eighth overall in 2010 but at 25 he really needed a fresh start.
Jan 4 - 7:19 AM

Alexander Burmistrov needs to get a work visa before he can play with the Arizona Coyotes.

That might prevent Burmistrov from making his Coyotes debut on Wednesday. He's with Arizona because the Coyotes claimed him off waivers from the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. He had two assists in 23 games with the Jets. "A young player that I think was looking for a change of scenery," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "He has the reputation to have some good skill. So we’ll see if a change of scenery can hopefully tweak him a little bit."
Jan 3 - 9:36 AM

The Arizona Coyotes have claimed Alexander Burmistrov off waivers from the Winnipeg Jets.

Burmistrov was taken with the eighth overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but he hasn't developed as the Jets hoped. He has just two assists in 23 games this season and 81 points in 298 career contests. Perhaps a change of scenery will help him, but we don't expect much from the 25-year-old forward.
