Observations:

 

January 2017 – Offensively the season is a struggle for the undersized, winger with only five points in 23 games. He is rather exciting with the puck and is constantly producing chances for a third liner, unfortunately he has not been surrounded by talent up to support his level of play. I’m looking for a bigger second half of the season as his shot rate has doubled in his last 10 games. Keep tabs on him to be notable in upcoming seasons. Jason Banks

 

November 2015 – The undersized dynamo is lighting up the QMJHL to the tune of 1.86 points per game! He sits 5th in league scoring, 3rd if you pro rate the top 10. He is currently on a run of 28 points in his last 12 Rampart games including a five point night. Timashov is expected to be a force on the Swedish World Junior squad in the upcoming tournament where we will get more exposure to him and see how he stacks up in a more competitive environment and big stage. He actually had a very strong camp for the Maple Leafs showing off his passing and puck protection skills along the boards. Should turn pro next season, despite having overage junior status. He is a dangerous player to take a chance on as a manager, his production is extremely impressive to many, but it is very questionable if he will be an offensive force when he goes pro.

June 2015 - The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Dmytro Timashov with the 125th pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

June 2015 - Ukranian born Dmytro is one of the older players available for the 2015 draft. He went from Ukraine to Sweden and joined Modo. He worked his way through the ranks of Modo appearing in the SHL for three games picking up an assist, that same year he posted 41 points in 40 games at the U20 level, he was 17 at the time. This past year (2014-15), Dmytro took his talents to the Memorial Cup hosting Quebec Ramparts. Timashov was the QMJHL rookie of the year and offensive rookie of the year, Michel Bergeron trophy, after posting a gaudy 71 assists and 90 points in 66 games. Timashov’s production dipped a bit in the playoffs posting 18 points in 22 games but in the memorial cup he posted three goals, an assist and eight penalty minutes in five games. Timashov has shown a bit of an aggressive side, which is unexpected out of many European players. His skating and especially his acceleration make him a dynamic player while his ability to stickhandle while travelling at those speeds makes him all the more impressive. While Timashov’s skating and stickhandling make him great he needs to work on his shot, adding some mass, and his defensive play. Benjamin Gallant

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

 

Timashov is an electrifying offensive player that could see himself slip into a top six. In a purely offensive role. Boom/Bust prospect
