05/08/2010 From Russia with love - Alexander Burmistrov

Canadian Junior Leagues -  BARRIE -- He did not speak English. He did not have any friends or family in Canada. He did not know what to expect. All Alexander Burmistrov knew when he signed on to play in the Canadian Hockey League was that it was his best bet to make it to the NHL. So the teenager from Russia left his hometown of Kazan this season to play for the Barrie Colts, coming to a coach who was wary of Russian players from a previous experience, trying to integrate into a billet family and playing for a team that had high expectations of going deep in the playoffs.

Talent Analysis:
Scout 1:Burmistrov skates really well...seemed like one of the fastest skaters on the ice...played his best hockey in the 2nd period where he got 2 goals and 2 assists, but in each of his shifts I thought he had good hustle and skated well...on his very first shift, he actually delivered an open ice body check that knocked the other player to the ice...played center for most of the game (during the power play he played RW), but he could use some work on face-offs (he won like 40% of his draws)...In the 2nd period, he made a nice saucer pass in the offensive zone to a teammate who scored. In that same shift (like less than a minute after), a teammate fed the puck to him from behind the net and he one-timed it for a goal...had 2 power play assists from good puck movement...played a bit on the penalty kill and his positioning was very good and he challenged the opposing players well...for his 2nd goal, a teammate was leading a rush and took a shot (while he was skating close behind), which the goalie stopped, but he left a rebound which he made no mistake with and scored. After, he did an Ovechkin-style leap into the glass which was cool...good hockey sense and he is pretty strong on the puck. Often he would have the puck in the offensive zone and twist into the opposite direction, in order to avoid the defenceman...he was one of the smaller players on the ice, so another thing he can work on is bulking up...
