Burmistrov is expected to draw into the lineup on Saturday.
Burmistrov was a healthy scratch in the Jets’ season opener on Thursday, but it looks like he will draw in on Saturday after it was announced that fellow centre, Bryan Little is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury. Burmistrov centred the third line with Shawn Matthias and Nikolaj Ehlers on his wing in Friday’s session. The 24-year-old had just 21 points (7G / 14A) in 81 games last year.
Burmistrov (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.
Burmistrov is banged up and listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s game vs. Nashville. If Burmistrov cannot play, he will be replaced by Patrice Cormier. Monitor his status during the pregame warmups.
The extent of the injury is not known, but an IceCaps spokesman said Tuesday night that with a four-day break in the schedule before the club returns to the ice again Friday night in St. John's against Springfield, the team opted to have Burmistrov checked out by the Jets medical staff.
Not much to go on here but the budding Jets' star should be able to return soon.
