Andre Burakovsky has been in North America for about a week, but he’s already made himself a new best friend. Rooming with fellow first-round pick Tom Wilson, the Austrian-born Swede was introduced to mac and cheese as he bonded with his new Canadian buddy. Well, RMNB’s Ian Oland asked Burakovsky if his bestie had him try any other new foods while he was here. The forward’s English isn’t perfect, but his answer was.
“He learned me a lot of things like eating peanut butter,” Burakovsky said with a laugh. “I tasted cinnamon roller. It was really good too. He learned me to eat some different things over here.”
“He’s a really good player, a really good friend,” he added. “We have spent some good time together.”
As the interview was concluding, Wilson snuck over and put a skate bag over Burakovsky’s head. Adorbs.
