This is an interesting prospect for the Oilers, Yakimov had a strong showing at orientation camp. At 6'5" 202 lbs, in a year or two, this could be the guy the Oilers need desperately to keep the big centers in the west in check. He seems to drive the net a lot which is something we could also really use. Lets hope he progresses really well under Nelson in OKC this year, and turns out to be the monster we need.  He could be that third line center that is just too much to handle and match up against.

Scouting report

Yakimov is a physical monster who is still finding out exactly what he can, and can't do with his frame... Pretty effective skater for his size and does a good job of getting where he needs to go... Has a good skill level but fails to really accomplish much at times... More of a swing-for-the-fence type of pick as a meddling compete level limits his ability to play a Bottom 6 role.

Imagine! Oilers in the playoffs
