The injury occurred when CSKA forward Greg Scott checked Kayumov, who plays for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in the KHL, into the boards. The 19-year-old winger has been placed on injured reserve until Nov. 20.
Kayumov, who was selected with the No. 50 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NHL draft by Chicago, will miss the CIBC Canada-Russia Series due to the injury. The 5-foot-11, 168-pounder played in 11 KHL games this season with little ice time. He also has one goal in four games in the MHL, the KHL’s top junior league.
Kayumov was ranked No. 25 in this year’s Second City Hockey’s ‘Blackhawks Top 25 Under 25’ series.
He spent most of last season with Loko Yaroslavl in the MHL, where he recorded 19 points in 33 games. It was a drop in production from the previous season, when he recorded 31 points in 39 MHL games. This season he has been trying to breakthrough Lokomotiv’s KHL roster and earn a full-time role with significant minutes.
