NEWARK, NJ – The Winnipeg Jets will be busy at the Prudential Center this afternoon with 10 picks in the seven-round NHL Draft.
But as the teams have gathered on the floor of the arena, already rumours are swirling about one of their own – Russian website championat.com is quoting Alex Burmistrov’s agent as saying his client is close to a deal with Ak Bars of the KHL. Earlier this month Burmistrov’s agent denied any interest in the KHL, but the rumour comes on a day when the Jets are attempting to use whatever assets they have – including three picks in the second round – to possibly move up in the draft from their spot at 13 in the first round.
The Jets’ allotment of 10 picks is tied for the most in the draft with Buffalo, Los Angeles and Nashville.
