The soon to be 26-year-old right-winger scored 40 points (17G, 23A) for the KHL powerhouse, and added another four points (2G, 2A) in eleven playoff games. Shumakov also led the KHL in plus/minus last year at +28, tying with former Rangers draft pick Mikhail Pashnin.

Here is @aj_ranger‘s scouting report on the Russian forward.

Update

According to Rangers insider Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the Rangers won’t be pursuing Shumakov.
