Alexander Burmistrov is facing the same challenge all Europeans face when coming over to North America to play hockey.

Getting used to the North American style of play. A smaller rink, more physical play, and quicker decision-making.

"I like the Canadian style of hockey more," Burmistrov said in an interview. "I like playing in smaller rinks. It's a much faster game. You have to think much quicker, you have to pass much quicker."
