February 2020 – The Red Wings have claimed Timashov off the waivers.  Jokke Nevalainen

February 2020 – Timashov has remained with the Leafs all season long due to his waiver-eligibility, but has been in-and-out of the lineup as a 4th-line option. His 9 points and 75 hits in 35 games isn’t bad for a player seeing around 8 minutes per night, but he remains blocked on the depth chart and has reportedly suggested interest in being traded to a home with a more consistent spot ready for him. His decent 4th-liner contributions and his history as a high-rate scorer make him a good sleeper pick to stash away in your deeper leagues just in case the best case scenario pans out. Hayden Soboleski

September 2019 – One of the bigger surprises in Leafs camp has been Timashov’s relentless shine in pre-season, which appears to have earned him a day-one NHL roster spot. He has been dangerous both with the puck and while hunting it down, proving to be harder to knock off the puck than expected. He must clear waivers if he gets sent down at any point, so it’s safe to assume he will be given a proper audition on the 4th-line before the organization risks losing him. Don’t expect big numbers right away, he won’t be seeing special-teams time, but this is a big step of someone that we have been patient with. Hayden Soboleski

June 2019 – Timashov’s campaign was another one that gives us promise and patience. His career-high 49 points in 72 games was more than welcome, as was his promotion to the top PP unit and top line for good stretches of the year. The downside however was the fact that his offensive improvements came only on the powerplay, with almost no increase in even strength production despite getting more minutes than in the past. He also upped hos PIM game, which is good for poolies but bad for his real life value. He still has fantastic offensive vision and creativity, but he is not quite the dynamic threat that his talents could make him. Expect another full campaign with the Marlies. Hayden Soboleski

November 2018 – In his third season with the Marlies, it looks like Timashov is being leaned on as a go-to offensive player on the squad. 6 points in 10 games so far is his best production rate so far, but his shooting rate is down from the playoffs and 2/3 of his points are coming on the man-advantage. His skill is indeed best suited for the powerplay, but he needs to be more dangerous at even-strength to be a true offensive prospect.  Hayden Soboleski

January 2018 – Timashov is having a solid second season with the Marlies on the first year of his entry level contract. He is very skilled with the puck and a solid goal scorer he has progressed this year over last year and is now one of the key players with the Marlies. Among the young Marlie  prospects only Andreas Johnson is making a bigger contribution. Tiamshov has eight goals and eight assists in 25 games so far this year with the Marlies. He will be given a shot at making the Leafs next season but it will be an uphill challenge for the diminutive winger. Competition for a spot with the Leafs will be very intense next year with Soshnikov, Grundstrom, Johnson, Aaltonen, Rychel and Kapanen to compete with. It is likely he gets into a few exhibition games but will return to the Marlies for at least another season or two. Brian Harling 

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. Jason Banks

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
