March 2020 – As his outstanding QMJHL breakout season continues, Abramov has earned an ELC from the Toronto Maple Leafs. He currently sits 15th in the league with 76 points in 63 matches (25 coming with the man-advantage), but his main claim to fame has been his ability to continue to carry his team on his back offensively. He sits 23 points ahead of his nearest teammate, 35 points if you don’t count the mid-season acquisition brought in specifically to fix the problem. He is a crafty and fast offense machine at only 18-years-old, but still requires a significant amount of physical growth before he will fight for an NHL spot. Fantasy stock rising, but bank on another year in the minors. Hayden Soboleski


December 2019 – Abramov is sitting just over the point-per-game mark for Victoriaville of the QMJHL, but his 40 points in 35 games is even more impressive considering that his closest teammate has only 23 points. He is managing top-20 scoring on a bottom-five team which is not ideal but is an strong sign that he is capable of quarterbacking offense. He was likely deserving of an invite to Team Russia for the WJC, but was unfortunately snubbed of a chance to showcase himself on a strong squad. Hayden Soboleski


September 2019 – After a brief training camp, Abramov has been assigned back to the QMJHL for another season. Expect a long wait period on this talent. That being said, if his rookie campaign was any indication, we should expect him to be an offensive force in Junior for the next two-three years. Hayden Soboleski


June 2019 – The Maple Leafs have selected Abramov in the 4th Round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. At 115th-overall, this was considered a good value pick by most draft guides. Hayden Soboleski


A talented pass-first playmaker, Abramov managed 54 points in 62 games as a QMJHL rookie – his first season since crossing the pond from Russia. He has a long ways to go to fill out his frame and round out his game before we can expect to see him beyond training camp, and it remains to be seen if he will be better suited for center ice of the winger as he gets closer to turning pro. Not the best at anything, but very high ceiling here that will become fantasy worthy once he does more in Junior.
