Dmytro Timashov

Darren Walker

Timashov is an electrifying forward who makes plays out of nothing. He is a very fluid skater
and he is always moving his feet. He has very good hockey sense and seems to always be in
the right place at the right time. He is small in stature but makes up for it with his quickness and
hockey smarts; he is always aware of his surroundings. He also seems to avoid hits and rolls off
potential checks thanks to his agility. Everything with this guy is at top speed. He sees a lot of
powerplay time and does major damage with the extra man. Spins off checks and makes clever
passes. Timashov gets to top speed very quickly and his patience with the puck is impressive.
He is willing to mix it up in the corners and along the wall, showing some spunk. Defensively, he
is responsible, but his area of expertise is truly in the offensive zone. He is a pass first player
and would be even more dangerous if he attacked the net more often with a shot of his own.
He shows a quick shot release and the impressive ability to shoot mid-deke as well. He is a bit
of a perimeter player as he does not regularly venture into high traffic areas with the puck. He
needs to learn that even though he has great hands, he does not always need to try to put on
a stickhandling clinic.  (May 2015)
