Dmitri Simashev's Player Profile

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 7th: "Simashev isnít a swing from an ability standpoint as heís big, mobile and showed more offensive capabilities as this season wore on. He very well could be a top-four defenseman that moves pucks and defends at a high level."

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - June 5th: "Simashev has all of the tools. He is an excellent skater, physical force, deft puck-handler, crisp passer and an intelligent defender with a booming shot."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 5th: "Itís hard not to like the way he way he can play in transition, whether defending the rush with his feet and reach or skating through neutral ice or out of the defensive zone in possession. But I donít see a ton of skill/smarts in control, where his game can simplify."

Chris Peters - Flo Hockey - June 1st: "Size, skating, maturity and confident puck-moving capabilities, it's all there for Simashev. His offensive numbers were somewhat troubling this year, but they improved as the season wore on and he showed a more aggressive offensive skillset when playing among his age peers as opposed to playing with pros."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 30th: "Simashev is a toolsy defenseman as a 6-foot-4 blueliner who skates quite well for his size. Heís not dynamic offensively, but he has good puck skills, can beat checkers one-on-one with his hands, makes a solid outlet pass and makes some plays from the offensive blue line."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - May 29th: "Against his own age group, he can carry the load on the blueline and can be physically intimidating. Scouts are all over the place with him, but I like his potential."
