Talent Analysis:
A physically gifted player with good technique...a fast skater with a very good stride, effectively uses it to create chances in the offensive zone...thanks to his good size he can play with an edge, even if he isn't a power forward...very good wrist shot which gets him rather easily on the score sheet...can work on his passing game, although he can distribute the puck rather well...needs to work on his positioning and defensive play...good strength, but has to work on the way to use it on his own advantage, and could also get some additional muscle...needs to work on his consistence...a good project player who still needs some seasoning in Russia before getting a true chance with his NHL team...
Back In Russia:
Maxim Shalunov is a product of the Traktor Chelyabinsk hockey school. His name started spreading around during the 2009-10 season, where he skated at the U18 WJC as underager, scoring three goals during the tournament. The following season Shalunov had a very good season in the MHL and had a cup of coffee in the KHL near the end of the season, and he get his first point in professional hockey.
NHL Outlook:
Maxim Shalunov is definitely a player with a future within the Blackhawks organization. He still needs a couple of years of seasoning in Russia in order to address some of the problems within his game, especially his unconsistency.
