08/28/2008 Blue Jackets sign draft pick Maxim Mayorov (Columbus Blue Jackets)

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  The Blue Jackets yesterday signed right winger Maxim Mayorov (Columbus Blue Jackets) to a three-year, entry-level contract worth $1.8 million. The deal will pay Mayorov base salaries of $525,000, $600,000 and $675,000, and it also includes bonus money if he plays a certain number of games in the NHL.

07/14/2008 Dmitri Kosmachev (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Maxim Mayorov (Columbus Blue Jackets) in Columbus

Russian prospects Dmitri Kosmachev (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Maxim Mayorov (Columbus Blue Jackets) have been invited for the annual rookie camp in Columbus, where Filatov was still missing since he is back home in Russia finalizing his departure. In the five-day camp the two players have seen significant action, but have been a bit shadowed by the great performances of Blue Jacket’s top prospect Jakub Voracek.

Maxim Mayorov’s skills have pleased the crowd attending the camp. Reported to have filled the papers to be out of obligations with his home club, Ak Bars Kazan, Mayorov was chosen in the last Import Draft by a WHL club, the Brandon Wheat Kings, so it’s likely that he will spend the next season in North America, in either the juniors or the AHL. During the training camp though, Mayorov had suffered a sore hand because of an on-ice collision, though that didn’t stop him from reporting and delivering some eye-grabbing moves. Mayorov will likely adapt well to the North American game also because of his good size and hockey sense. Other than being gifted with an accurate wristshot and good hands. It’s mandatory to say that he was also among the last players to left the ice after the practices, and Columbus’ coaches spent some additional amount of time talking to him. Still, he had some difficulties when the team approached defensive and physical drills, but in an interview with a local newspaper he confirmed his interest in learning and eventually playing in the NHL.

However, if Mayorov was expected overseas, the same can’t be said about Dmitri Kosmachev (Columbus Blue Jackets). His appearance on the training-camp roster as a surprise, but he gained crowd and coaches’ respect for his size and politeness of play. The 23 year old appeared to have an NHL body completed with a good point shot and interesting technique that made him naturally comparing with country mate Plekhanov – who made the jump last season to have a strong AHL campaign being now talked practically as a member of Jackets’ lineup for the 08/09 season – and the hope is to repeat what they managed to made with him, from a surprise signing to a potential NHL player. Andrei Plekhanov (Columbus Blue Jackets) was there too for a little bit of time, serving as a translator for Kosmachev and Mayorov. Ironically, all the three Russian players missed their penalty-shot attempts in the shoot-out training.
