FUTURE WATCH: Maksimov

EdmontonOilers.com caught up with 2017 fifth-round draft pick Kirill Maksimov for a brief update

by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

EDMONTON, AB - It was a long summer for Niagara IceDogs forward Kirill Maksimov. The Russian winger was selected by the Oilers in the fifth round (146-overall) at the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago, then joined fellow Oilers prospects at Development Camp in Jasper, AB, in July where the forward got acquainted with many of the franchise's future hopefuls. In September, Maksimov suited up in the 2017 Young Stars Classic. The club ended the tournament a perfect 3-0-0 to win the circuit for the fourth year in a row and Maksimov had a major hand in that, having scored an amazing individual effort overtime tally to beat the Canucks 5-4 in overtime.

Last season, Maksimov posted 15 goals and seven assists in 29 games with the IceDogs. The skater is now back with the team and already off to a hot start registering three goals and four assists in five games to begin the campaign.

EdmontonOilers.com caught up with Maksimov for a brief update.
