Daniil Tarasov(19) Worcester Sharks

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.

He started the year with Worcester but was dispatched to their ECHL affiliate San Francisco Bulls to get some playing time in, because he wasn’t cracking the lineup.

In 17 ECHL games he scored 3 goals and added 11 assists. He was recalled to the Sharks in early January.

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.
