A friend of mine plays in the Asia League, on a team with Bourret. His name is Tim Smith, he tied the league record in scoring last year... There a few ex-nhl guys / AHL guys. Smith crushed the dub (96 points), played and lead the ECHL in scoring one year (on a line with Burrows) which finally got him a chance in the AHL (which was the same year as the lock out, so his job got taken by NHL players and he was reduced to fourth line minutes) never got a contract extension the season after even though he destroyed the ECHL/WHL.
Burrows says high praises of him, even mentioned him on an article on nhl.com
here's his player page on elite prospects :
Super good guy, it's a shame he never a got a shot in the bigs.
