October 2020 – Ponomaryov was drafted 53rd overall by the Carolina Hurricanes. Tony Ferrari 

September 2020 – The Russian forward found a nice home in Shawinigan as a QMJHL rookie in 2019-20. It didn’t hurt that he messed quickly with top 2020-eligible prospect, Mavrik Bourque. The two formed a deadly top line for the Cataractes. Ponomaryov is a north-south forward who has spent time at center and the wing. He enjoys creating havoc on the forecheck and has a keen sense for distributing the puck. A likely second-round selection, the 18-year-old has a lot of translatable skills. Cam Robinson
