Timashov signed a one-year, two-way contract with Timashov on Wednesday, Puck Pedia reports.
Timashov was waived by the Islanders earlier Wednesday. The 24-year-old winger was a restricted free agent before signing the deal. After posting nine points over 44 NHL games last season, Timashov has enough experience at the top level to add value to the team's taxi squad until the AHL season commences.
The Islanders waived Timashov on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Timashov garnered praise from coach Barry Trotz early on in camp, but evidently didn't impress enough to earn a spot on the Opening Night roster. It wouldn't, however, be surprising to see him end up on New York's taxi squad. The 24-year-old forward picked up nine points in 39 games split between the Maple Leafs and Red Wings last season.
Timashov stood out to coach Barry Trotz on the first day of training camp, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Trotz stated that Timashov is stronger than he looks and can play multiple positions. Timashov is likely playing for a spot on the third line and battling players like Michael Dal Colle and Leo Komarov for the right to play with Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Even if Timashov were to win a job out of camp, Trotz could keep rotating wings on this line until he finds a combination he is comfortable with.
The Islanders acquired the rights to Timashov from Detroit in exchange for future considerations on Friday.
Timashov is currently a restricted free agent after scoring nine points in 44 games last season with the Maple Leafs and Red Wings. The 24-year-old winger showed steady improvements in three years with AHL Toronto -- scoring 24, 35, and 49 points during that span -- prior to making his NHL debut last season. Assuming he agrees to a deal with the Islanders, Timashov will likely be a depth bottom-six winger during the 2020-21 campaign.
Timashov has racked up seven hits in two games since the Red Wings claimed him off waivers from Toronto.
Timashov logged 11 minutes of ice time in his Wings debut against the Senators last Saturday, and he ultimately settled a visa issue in time for Monday's clash with the Avalanche. Born in Ukraine, the rookie winger partially offsets the team's loss of Andreas Athanasiou, as both players are known for their explosiveness and ability to fly through the attacking zone. Timashov is undeniably more physical than AA, though it'll take some time for the former to get up to speed at the top level.
Timashov will play in Saturday's game against Ottawa, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Timashov had been dealing with a complicated visa situation, but it appears as though he's figured everything out. He'll play Saturday and then plans to finalize the remaining off-ice paperwork before rejoining the Red Wings in time for Monday's game against the Avalanche.
Timashov won't be available versus the Devils on Tuesday due to visa issues, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
According to coach Jeff Blashill, Timashov may miss a couple of games as a result of a complicated visa situation. After being snagged off waivers from the Maple Leafs, the winger should see a significant uptick in ice time with his new team.
The Red Wings claimed Timashov off waivers from Toronto on Monday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Timashov has played 39 games with the Maple Leafs this year, accruing nine points (four goals, five assists) and 83 hits. The 23-year-old will add depth to the Red Wings' lineup during its rebuild, and he'll likely slot into the bottom six.
Timashov was placed on waivers by the Maple Leafs on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
The 23-year-old has seen a limited role with the big club this campaign, accumulating nine points, 34 shots and 83 hits across 8:06 of average ice time in 39 games. Timashov will likely finish the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Toronto should he go unclaimed on waivers.
Timashov tallied a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Jets.
He tapped in a pass from Adam Brooks in the second period. More notably, Timashov skated a season-low 2:49 over seven shifts. The 23-year-old is no lock for the lineup in any given game, and rarely sees much playing time under head coach Sheldon Keefe. Despite the limited role, he has nine points and 69 hits in 31 games this season.
Timashov has three goals and five assists in 30 games this season.
His ice time is limited -- it's ranged from 8:43 down to 4:51 in his last five games. Timashov's offense is limited, but he does have 69 hits in 30 games. That might be helpful.
Timashov had a two-game point streak snapped Saturday in a 2-1 overtime win over the Sabres.
Overall, Timashev has just six points in 19 games, so his fantasy value is limited for now. New coach Sheldon Keefe is turning the Leafs' offensive weapons loose. That means Timashov's ice time will be restricted -- there's only so much to go around.
Timashov delivered a two-assist effort Saturday in a 5-2 victory over the Red Wings.
He also finished plus-2 and delivered three hits. Timashov moves in and out of the lineup on the Leafs' fourth line, so this performance might earn him a little extra playing time. After all, he does have three points in three games so far. We'll see. Timashov has no fantasy value until he can score regular playing time.
Timashov recorded a secondary assist in his NHL debut Wednesday, contributing to a 5-3 home win over the Senators.
The 23-year-old winger is an interesting fantasy option since he played extensively in the Swedish Hockey league, QMJHL and AHL before this successful NHL debut. Last season, he finished third on the Marlies in points with 49 (14 goals, 35 assists) through 72 minor-league contests. It's going to be difficult for him to consistently generate offense as a fourth-liner who'll be hard-pressed to hit 10 minutes per game most nights, but so far, so good.
Timashov has been sent to the AHL Marlies.
Over the last two seasons with the Marlies, Timashov has experienced modest offensive growth. He increased his output from 24 points (2016-17) to 34 last year. The small forward needs to take a step forward this season to prove his QMJHL scoring totals were real.
