Alex Burmistrov made a medical visit to Winnipeg, but The Sun indicates he came away relatively unscathed.
The talented Russian forward suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury on Saturday in a game against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (a game he finished) and flew to Winnipeg on Tuesday to be checked out by Winnipeg Jets’ doctors and medical staff.
Burmistrov, who has two goals and 11 points in 22 American Hockey League games with the St. John’s IceCaps this season, was examined on Wednesday afternoon. IceCaps coach Keith McCambridge said “everything looks normal. He’s going to stay in Winnipeg for a week and they will re-assess him from there.”
The eighth overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft had 13 goals and 28 points in 76 games with the Jets last season.
