From Aaron Vickers, Future Considerations:

The Atlanta Thrashers are keeping 18-year-old forward Alexander Burmistrov.

The eighth overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft in June will play in his tenth game of the season, kicking in the first year of his three year entry-level contract and all but securing a spot in Atlanta’s lineup for the duration of the season.

Though he’s produced just one assist in nine games, Burmistrov has shown enough to Thrasheres head coach Craig Ramsay.

“It always will be an evaluation but based on his play, to me, he’s shown that he’s ready to play in the National Hockey League,” Ramsay told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
