Soon to be restricted free agent Alex Burmistrov reportedly does not want to be a Winnipeg Jet anymore.

According to a report in the Winnipeg Free Press by Gary Lawless - who is also a drive-time host on TSN 1290 Radio in Winnipeg - two league sources stated that the 21-year-old, who wished to be moved at the trade deadline in March, is standing by that request.

When contacted by the Free Press, Burmistrov's agent Mark Gandler didn't have much to say.

"The only question I'm going to answer is to say that Alex is not going to sign in the KHL," Gandler stated.

Burmistrov, who was a healthy scratch in four straight games in March, has 23 goals and 58 points in 194 career NHL games.
