After two seasons playing for his hometown Ak-Bars Kazan in the Kontinental Hockey League, Alexander Burmistrov returned to the Winnipeg Jets after agreeing to terms on a two-year contract July 1.

Burmistrov made a surprise appearance Sunday at Jets development camp at MTS Iceplex and explained how much he missed competing in the NHL.

"I wanted to come meet everybody," Burmistrov said in video posted on the Jets website. "I'm really excited. I missed this kind of game … smaller ice and more aggressive hockey. I'm two years older. I don't know if I'm a different player or not, maybe a little bit, maybe not. We'll see.

"I'm happy to be here. I want to help the team win games."

Sunday, 07.05.2015 / 12:00 PM / NHL Insider

Derek Van Diest - NHL.com Correspondent

It took some time for Draisaitl to get over the disappointment of returning to juniors, but he went on to have an excellent second half with the Rockets, leading them to the WHL championship and a berth in the Memorial Cup final.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
