Steve Yzerman talks about Alex Burrows, 2010 candidate
“We’ve got a relatively long list of players that, once the season is over, we’ll sit down and discuss which guys out of that group we’ll bring to Vancouver (for the 2010 Games). And Alex’s play this season has certainly merited – he’s earned the right for us to watch him very closely. He’s obviously someone I’ve taken note of with his play. The offensive production has increased this year to add to his play as a strong defensive guy and he’s certainly someone I’m watching very closely. We’ll see and we’ll get a chance to watch Vancouver into the playoffs and see how they perform – but absolutely, he’s a guy that we have to keep an eye on.”
There’s not much more I can add here except to highlight how far Burrows has come in the last couple of years – from the ECHL and summertime ball hockey to a consideration for Team Canada.
Wow. Just wow.
