Atlanta Thrashers draft Alexander Burmistrov (Photo © AP Photo/Reed Saxon) The Atlanta Thrashers picked up with the 8th overall pick at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The center's selection was a bit of a surprize, but anyway the Thrashers decided to draft him most likely because of his skills set. Burmistrov, 18, played with the Barrie Colts of the OHL this year, with 65 points during the regular season and 16 during the playoffs. Even if he joined the OHL on loan from Ak Bars Kazan, most likely Burmistrov will be back in North America for the next season.

This year's team Russia performed badly throughout the whole tournament, and the match against Finland was no different. Ramis Sadikov started between the pipes, with Igor Bobkov being iced after twenty-sixth minutes. The first period counted three goals: Maxim Trunev opened the score, while Teemu Eronen made it 1-1 with the man advantage at the sixteenth. All the four Finn goals will be scored while on the powerplay. With only twenty-three seconds to play, Alexander Burmistrov scored the...

Team Russia WJC roster released (Photo © Richard Wolowicz/Getty Images) The roster for the World Junior Championships has been released today by head coach Vladimir Plyuschev and Russian Hockey Federation.

The Hockey News Hot List: Burmistrov #1 (Photo © Claus Andersen/Getty Images) In the popular The Hockey News Hot List feature, Ryan Kennedy put center Alexander Burmistrov on the top of this week's list. Like fellow Russian imports Ivan Telegin and Kirill Kabanov, Burmistrov came over to the Canadian League this year for more ice time than he would get in the Kontinental League and better competition than he would have seen on the Russian junior circuit. “The OHL is a better league,” he said. “Fast, many hits.

He has an English tutor who comes twice a week and also watches some TV to round out th...
