125th overall - Dmytro Timashov

Once again, the Leafs swung for the fences with their 105th overall selection by taking winger Dmytro Timashov.

He had blown away the QMJHL in his first North American season producing 19 goals and 90 points in 66 games and capturing the Q’s rookie of the year award.

His production would take a slight uptick the following year posting 22 goals and 85 points in 57 games between the Quebec Remparts and Shawinigan Cataractes.

He would also go point-per-game in seven games for Sweden at the World Juniors. 

He would turn pro the following year with the Toronto Marlies and would take time to find his scoring touch at the next level.

In his rookie season he only hit 24 points in 63 games but would steadily progress from there. He played three seasons with the Leafs AHL affiliate scoring 38 goals and 107 points in 202 games, helping capture a Calder Cup with them in 2018.

His progression would earn him a spot on the Maple Leafs roster in 2019-20 playing a primarily fourth line role.

He would amass nine points through 39 games before being picked off waivers by the Detroit Red Wings where he was held off the scoresheet in five games. 

He would be left unsigned by the Red Wings and have his rights deald and ultimately sign with with Lou Lamoriello and the New York Islanders for the next two seasons.

He would play one more NHL game before leaving to join Brynäs IF of the SHL in 2021-22. He stayed there one more season before going to the NL’s HC Ajoie this past season. Overall, he has played 45 games in the NHL scoring nine points.
