    I'm a fan. Have him ranked 25th among OHL players for this draft (puts him around the 3rd round mark).

    Here's what I said:
    Essentially, this is a guy with very high upside in a draft that lacks a ton of high upside offensive players. If I'm a team with a lot of picks in the first three rounds, I swing for the fences and take him in hopes that his explosion in Niagara was no fluke. The IceDogs are one of the best young teams in the league and he's going to be a major factor in their continuing rebuild. Honestly, this guy could be top 5 in goals scored by his 19 year old season in the league.

    Nice YoungStars tournament for Maksimov. Rough first period of the first game but was very good after that. Interested to see him in a preseason game or two.

    He'll need some time to develop, but it's hard not to like his skillset. Especially for a team starved for right-handed goalscorers. Probably 3-4 years out though at minimum.

    he was a great pick for where he was taken and out shone Ostap Safin at the Young Stars tourney.

    This guy was a great gamble with a 5th round pick. Obviously he has a long way to go to become an NHLer, but I love that Edmonton went with a skilled guy who can skate and shoot the puck, and especially a guy who isn't afraid to shoot a lot. 10 shots last game and a stat line of 13GP-7G-7A-14P 67SOG. Definitely a player to watch going forward. Also a RH shot with some size to boot.

    Any idea on his chances of getting a look for the U20 Russia team?

    Not great, his position is very deep for this generation.

    Doesn't bode well that he wasn't chosen to participate in Russia vs Canada super series.

    Appreciate the response, hadn't realize he wasn't picked for that. Maybe next year then. I'm interested to see how his season plays out though. He looked great in the rookie tournament for Edmonton.

    Kid loves to shoot the puck, if he develops he could be a 20-30 goal scorer in the NHL one day.
