Worcester Sharks‘ undrafted Russian-born rookie right wing Daniil Tarasov(19) signed a one-year AHL contract straight out of the USHL, where he tore up the scoresheet for two straight seasons before committing to a pro career.
In 11 games played since returning he’s put in 3 goals and 5 assists. He just kept on showing up on the scoresheet and even has a couple of multi-point efforts in there. No doubt, he’s on a roll.
At 5’11” 192 lbs. he never really looks like the biggest guy on the ice but finds his spots for scoring chances.
No doubt if the 21-year keeps it up at this pace, he will on the San Jose radar for an entry level deal. He should be.
One thing about this player: his helmet never seems to fit on his head too well.
