    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.

    28 goals this year but only 1 multi-goal game. Consistent.

    If Edmonton gets really, really lucky, we have a baby James Neal in the works here. Really like his tools, has a lethal shot that he loves to use, and has a nasty streak a mile wide.

    Edmonton needs a low pick to pan out big. They don't have much in terms of skill in the system.

    He looks like the real deal. Curious to see if he can take another step next year and be really dominant in the OHL (and WJC).

    Heck of a draft + 1 by Kirill the Thrill. Looking like a guy with NHL upside.

    Can’t believe he’s still only 18, he had a good rookie camp as well last year, looking forward to seeing him in main camp this year

    In rookie camp and in the preseason, he might have been the 2nd best forward after Yamamoto.

    I’m excited to watch his progression.
