Fantasy Summary

Hamaliuk is a big power forward who possesses good speed for his size and an above average shot. His size makes him a safer bet to at least land a bottom six NHL gig in comparison to his peers.

June 2022 – Hamaliuk has struggled to replicate the offensive streak he showed in his draft year and has been plagued by a litany of injuries. His foot speed has always been a question mark and it continues to cause him problems at the pro level. Hamaliuk is still young however as a depth player in the AHL, he is certainly behind schedule from what you’d expect from a second-round pick. He has the size and defensive consciousness to play a lower line role however I think it’s unlikely he’s ever utilized in a scoring role at the NHL level. Donesh Mazloum

June 2019 – The Sharks selected Hamaliuk with the 55th pick in the second round of the 2019 NHL entry draft. They must have had him targeted for a while as they moved up in the draft to select him. Hamaliuk has a projectable frame and a toolbox that you can easily see in the NHL one day. He suffered a head injury this season which limited him to only 31 games, so we’ll have to wait until his D + 1 season to get a true feel for his development. Chris Legg
