Had a slow start to the year. Since he's been paired with Quine, his game has taken off. Those 2 play extremely well with each other.

Zharkov is a big bodied player that has a physical edge to his game. He skates well and has (in my opinion) the best shot in junior hockey. Sometimes he tries to make the extra pass when he should just shoot. With a shot like his, if he got 8 to 10 shots a game (he doesn't), he would score 60 goals in this league. One thing that has really picked up, especially in the 2nd half, is his defensive play. I've seen him skate back on a number of occasions on odd man rushes to lift the stick of the player and scoop away the puck. The Oilers are lucky to have gotten him in the 3rd round.
