Dmytro Timashov Should Be A Fit For The Wings

06/11/2020 at 4:06pm EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

Timashov, 23, made his Wings debut Feb. 29 at Ottawa, playing 11 minutes. He had played in five games when the NHL shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic on March 12, averaging nearly 12 minutes.

He didn’t record any points, but he finished his checks and played with bite, something the Wings lack. Yzerman described him as a player " ... that can help create some offense and generate it … a strong kid that we think has a chance to be a regular in the NHL.”

Timashov is a restricted free agent, and should be a fit with a short-term deal in the range of $1 million annually. He projects as a bottom-six forward, someone who’ll push the likes of Adam Erne, Justin Abdelkader, Christoffer Ehn and Evgeny Svechnikov for a job. If Timashov can show he has a scoring dimension on top of being physical, he'll be a regular in the lineup.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
