The thing that blew me away though is he's 16 years old and already 6'1''/212lbs!

That's one scary big family
.
He's much much bigger than Jujhar was at his age, which could mean he's going to be huge.

Don't know if this had been discussed anywhere, but Yakimov had been training in Edmonton all summer. I havent seen it on the oilers website or oilers nation, but on Instagram it shows he's in Edmonton.

Most guys don't come to Edmonton till mid August. So great that hes over. I wonder if him and LD are training together

I honestly wouldn't be shocked if Bogdan made the team out of training camp.

All summer? He posted that he was leaving Moscow to come back to Edmonton a week ago.

If you need any confirmation Yakimov is a mammoth, he makes LD seem normal size

Funniest thing is that the regular guy in that photo isn't necessarily even a small guy, but he looks like a wimp compared to the other 3.

No homo but this is pretty impressive for a U20. This is what I call a true 6'4/6'5 frame. Just a massive frame.

That was 14 months ago too, right around when he turned 19. Crazy

Not soon enough!


I think it starts after the Penticton tournament, which ends Sept 15th. The first preseason game is against the Flames on Sept 21st.

Oof, my bad, I meant the Rookie All-Star tournament.

I met Yakupov, Yakimov, and Draisaitl at Original Joe's the other day. All of them are pumped and ready for the season. When I went to shake Yakimov's hand, it felt like he was going to crush it LOL. Strong kid!

How big did they look in reference to each other? Cool to see them equate themselves before training camp.

I couldn't compare very well since all of them were sitting when I went over to say hi. Yakimov and Draisaitl were definitely taller than me, and I am close to 6'0 tall. Yakupov was about my height.

That's pretty encouraging to hear. It's all hearsay, but it seemed like Yakupov didn't fit in with the other "kids".

If we play bad this season I can already see articles about how the team is divided into two groups, on one side Hall & his boys and on the other double Yak and Draisaitl. How dare that lazy russian make friends.

Moroz apparently played with a blown out knee and a separated shoulder during the playoffs this year.

Warrior.

Given how he still managed to produce despite those injuries I'm pretty optimistic about this guy.

He's a guaranteed Oiler with those injuries already on his resume.
