This morning the Quebec Remparts traded forward Dmytro Timashov to the Shawinigan Cataractes for 1st-round and 3rd-round picks in 2017 and a 3rd-round pick in 2018.

As of writing Shawinigan (25-11-3) is third in the QMJHL standings (as division leaders are seeded 1-2-3), while Quebec (23-13-4) is sixth. Shawinigan is looking for their second Memorial Cup, they won as hosts in 2012 and Timashov's offensive powers will help them with that goal.

Timashov has scored 18 goals, and 35 assists in 29 games for the Remparts this season, a 1.83 PPG pace, and hopefully he can keep that pace up for the rest of the season.

Timashov was drafted in the 5th round, 125th overall, by the Maple Leafs at the 2015 NHL draft. He was ranked 21st in the Top 25 under 25 this fall.

He'll join a high-powered offence that includes the likes of Tampa's Dennis Yan, New York's Anthony Beauvillier, and a pair of top draft eligible prospects (Brandon Gignac and Samuel Girard).
