#2 Danila Klimovich

Danila Klimovich is a right winger who could also play center. In 37 games with Minskie Zubry of Belarus Vysshaya he recorded 52 points with 28 goals and 24 assists. He also was on Dinamo-Molodechno of Belarus where he played in six games and had a goal. Additionally he scored six goals in five games with the Belarus U18 team in the WJC.

In the playoffs with Minskie Zubry he recorded 14 points in 12 games with nine goals and five assists. The previous season he played on Team Blarus on the U17, U18 and U20 teams.

Here’s what Elite Prospects says about Klimovich:

"Klimovich moves on the first touch and cuts inside on most opponents. He plays his game in between the dots as much as possible, uses teammates, and plays with a hard, and violent energy."

His best stretch came on the U20 team that 2019-20 season. In 32 games he recorded 23 points with 13 goals and 10 assists. He also had 19 points in 16 games with the U17 team with 13 goals and six assists. With the U18 team he had three points in five games with a goal and two assists.

That is four players and now there is one more sleeper left that we will profile.
