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.
