Future Watch: Egor Korshkov Hockey Cards, Toronto Maple Leafs – Egor Korshkov was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft. The 6-4 right winger was always looked at as a talented player who needed the proper time to develop.
Korshkov has been playing in the KHL since 2014-15 but had trips up and down to the MHL which isn’t uncommon. Prospects have cold streaks, and many times they’re sent down. That’s the price of playing against men in professional leagues.
Leading up to his draft year, in 2015-16, the Russian played in 41 games for Lokomotiv and tallied six goals and six helpers in 12 games. During that season, he starred for the national team in the U20 World Junior Championship, producing eight points in seven games and brought home a silver medal that season.
From 2016-17 to 2018-2019, Korshkov put up 50 points in 107 games for Lokomotiv. Following the conclusion of the 2018-19 KHL season, Korshkov joined the Toronto Marlies for their playoff run. He played in nine games scoring one goal.
In 2019-20, Korshkov started with the Marlies and got in 44 games scoring 16 goals and nine assists. During that season, he got called up to Toronto and played in one game, scoring his first NHL goal. When the NHL returned to play, Korshkov didn’t see action.
Here’s a look Korshkov’s his first NHL goal:
For the start of the 2020-21 season, Korshkov was loaned to the KHL’s Lokomotiv. In his first 21 games, he had six goals and eight assists. He’s worth collecting, and he’s going to put up points when he gets his chance.
