Report: Alexander Burmistrov will return to NHL
Sometimes it's just too hard to stay away.
Alexander Burmistrov - a former first-round pick - who fled the NHL for his native Russia after miserable seasons with the Atlanta Thrashers and Winnipeg Jets is interested in a return to the big show.
Burmistrov played the last two seasons alongside Medvedev on Ak-Bars Kazan of the KHL.
The 23-year-old forward potted 20 goals and added 43 assists in 107 games across the two campaigns.
