In seven games for Sweden he scored 2 goals with 5 assists and was +4 with 2 penalty minutes. Sweden finished fourth, falling 8-3 to the USA in the bronze medal game. 

Talent Analysis

Timashov is an offensive dynamo. A diminutive-but-stocky forward, he plays a style of game that suits the smaller, North American ice surfaces. He doesn’t mind getting involved physically and that asset of his game contributes strongly to his offensive game. He creates both time and space with his physical play and is adept at finding the open man.

Future

Timashov was a key contributor for Rouyn-Nouranda during the Huskies run to the QMJHL Finals after being acquired from Quebec in the middle of the 2015-16 season. He played for Sweden in the World Juniors and signed an entry-level contract with the Maple Leafs. He will attend his second training camp with the Maple Leafs in 2016-17 and barring any surprises or injuries is expected to skate for the AHL's Toronto Marlies as a 20-year-old. Timashov projects as a Brad Marchand-type forward who can contribute on the scoresheet while getting agitating opponents.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have underwent a tremendous organizational overhaul in the past 18 months, and, as a result, the team’s prospect group is one of the best in the NHL. They’ll add to their already-impressive group in the upcoming draft, where they currently own 12 picks.

Because of the amount of trades and new prospects in the organization there has been a lot of movement in the Maple Leafs Top 20 prospects, though the Top 3 remains the same. Read more»

Can anyone stop Conor Garland from scoring? The diminutive forward is already 30-points clear of second place in scoring, and a veteran goaltender will be tasked with attempting to keep him off the scoresheet in weekend action. Also in this NHL Prospect Faceoff, Brendan Lemieux, Jack Roslovic, and Jansen Harkins from the Winnipeg Jets organization are all in action this weekend. Finally, two Swedish defensemen with vastly different skill sets are chronicled in SHL action. Read more»

When former London Knights assistant coach and general manager Mark Hunter was brought into the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, it was assumed the team would put an emphasis on drafting players out of junior hockey, primarily the CHL. So it was no surprise, then, when the Leafs went to the CHL for six of their nine selections in the 2015 NHL Draft. Read more»
