December 2018 – Kayumov has been suspended for 13 games following an illegal check to the head of an opponent and “accidentally” punching an official in the resulting scrum. Kayumov was having a decent season with Lokomotiv of the KHL. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when he returns to the lineup. Tony Carr
December 2017- Kayumov will be representing team Russia at the IIHF World Junior Championships. This is good news for fans of the Hawks second round pick in 2016, as he suffered through a broken collarbone in October, forcing him to miss the CIBC Super Series against CHL all star teams. This injury has since fully healed, allowing him to participate in the tournament. Possessing the ability to both finish and create plays, Kayumov will be one to watch for the offensively gifted Russians. Tony Carr
