Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has average size, but he has good strength and gets a lot of power out of his physical game. He will also take the hit in order to make the play for his team. Offensively, Maksim showed good tools -- he has a powerful shot. He has a bit of a shoot-first mentality, but also displayed a willingness to set up his linemates and has the passing ability and the vision to create chances. He protects the puck well and shows the patience to make the play. He works hard in all three zones but was particularly strong on the fore-check putting pressure on opponents and finishing his checks." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
