The #Oilers have acquired centreman Klim Kostin from St. Louis in exchange for defenceman Dmitri Samorukov. Kostin was drafted 31st overall in 2017 & has scored 11 points (5 goals, 6 assists) in 46 career NHL games.

Can carry defenders around the ice with his power and balance, or stickhandle around them with a deke or two as he goes to the net, Futureconsiderations.caHe is a smooth skater with a deep knee bend that produces a long, powerful stride and he can generate speed with very few strides, Hockeyprospect.com
Kostin has been an enigma since being selected at the end of the first round in the 2017 NHL draft. He has good size, skates well for his size, and has an NHL-caliber shots. But somehow the parts have never meshed together. On more than one occasion, Berube has lacked the consistency from game-to-game and even shift-to-shift that you need on the NHL level.When asked if he was basically down to his regular-season roster, Berube said: “Yeah, for the most part. Looking at a couple things still, but for the most part it’s pretty narrowed in.”
The #LetsGoOilers could keep Kostin (750K) in minors and Malone (762.5K) on roster through Monday's submission. Then subsequently they could flip them & gain 12.5K cap space.https://t.co/yC72vfjRQy https://t.co/wvGK4baqCD
