Opps, didn't know that. I am on the 25th game of the season. That's a shame he is gone. He probably did everything for that team but play as a goalie.

Right now Burakovsky is playing an U18-tournament instead of with the men's team..
Of the Malmo games vs Djurgarden, Burakovsky played very little. Is it because of the coach or just his play has been poor? He looks bigger than 6'1" and can skate well. But I didn't see much that would say he should be in the top 15 or top 30 of this draft. Do you agree?
