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.

In a draft class as pumped up and anticipated as this year’s is, it should come as no surprise that Sweden will likely be the producer of over 20 players taken by NHL teams over the course of the 2015 NHL Draft. For several years now, Sweden has established itself as the third-largest provider of NHL-drafted talent, coming in after Canada and the USA. Read more»

Among North American skaters rated in the middle rounds of the 2015 NHL Draft, there are a number of interesting defensemen available that have not yet garnered a consensus opinion over where they will be selected. The confusion is for good reason, as the mix features puck-movers, defensive defensemen, and steady, two-way players who control the game from the blueline. Read more»

The drama last winter in Sweden at the 2014 World Junior Championship could hardly be topped. Playing at home in front of crowds sized larger than 12,500 per game, Team Sweden defeated one opponent after another with a literal dream team of U20 athletes. Then they faced the tourney’s upstart team, and their archrival, Finland and it seemed the stars were aligned for a victory parade that few Swedish junior teams had ever topped. Winning the WJC in their home country would have been a story ripe for Hollywood. Read more»

Forward Louick Marcotte and defenceman Ryan Graves have been traded away and team captain Samuel Henley and defensemen Guillaume Gelinas and Randy Gazzola have also moved on. Read more»
