    I've been trying to follow him since last year. He had a good season in the MHL as a rookie. Didn't get much exposure on the internation scene although he was at the World Junior A Challenge and the U18. He seems to be doing well again this season. In fact, he has pretty much the same statline as Vasilevskiy. At 6'3 190, he looks intriguing. Don't know if Russian posters can give more info.

    G Ivan Nalimov - Sibir Novosibirsk, KHL (2014, 179th, CHI)

    The Russian Goalie in the Subway Super Series. Obviously a small sample size, but I'm really liking his game so far. Has some size, seems pretty athletic, and doesn't give up on pucks. Anyone know when he's draft eligible?

    Quick google search shows he's 19 and has been passed over already. Could be a late pick in this years draft but his original draft year has passed.

    If there one position where being passed over doesn't really matter then it is Goalie. Here are his stats - click. Exactly one professional game under his belt. :laugh:

    Really good stats in MHL though, and that's not a bad league...

    Thanks to the mod for changing the title, posted this from my dying phone, was kind of in a rush. Anyone that follows the MHL/KHL a little more closely know anything about his future?

    Liked him early in today's game with Finland and was wondering if he had an opportunity to be a late round pick in the upcoming draft.

    Let up two suspect goals in the second period today - particularly Haapala's goal from the right boards and then a choice rebound he kicked right into the slot.

    Does anyone know a lot more about him?

    I really don't see that coming. He overplayed a lot.

    Does anyone know why Nalimov has not been playing since December?

    I watched some of his game against Severstal. He was tremendous. Let in a number of goals, but the whole game was played in his own teams zone. He did well to keep it from being a 7 or 8 goal margin.

    Pretty solid start of the season by Nalimov. Thread title is misleading though, as Chicago drafted him in 2014, hope that mods can fix that.

    Does this guy have any shot at an NHL future?

    My understanding is that the Hawks are keeping a close on him and (I may be wrong on this, so perhaps someone else can shed some light) the Hawks own his rights indefinitely. I read somewhere - it may have been by Scott Powers - that he was close to leaving hockey and was absent for awhile early in the season. Since coming back he's been absolutely lights out. Now, he's one of the top goalies in the KHL.

    He was very reliant on his athleticism, which is impressive, but his technique was mediocre.

    I'm not sure if he fixed that.
