September 2013- Shalunov will in fact get a chance to show what he's made of at the North American pro level. He was sent down to Rockford and will spend the season gaining needed experience. Rex Doty


June 2013- Shalunov wasn't able to latch on with the KHL's Traktor Chelyabinsk, only seeing one game without a point. He spent
the season with Traktor's minor league teams. Between the two minor league teams he put up 19 points in 26 games. It's most likely that Shalunov will remain with Traktor for the coming season. Rex Doty

November 2012 – Shalunov is currently a member of the Russian national junior squad competing in a six-game series versus CHL all-star teams in the SUBWAY Super Series and he has been one of Russia’s most effective weapons.  After four games, Shalunov sits tied with Nail Yakupov for the team’s scoring lead with 2 goals and 4 points and will be a vital member of the Russian 2013 WJC roster. Brendan Ross


November 2012 –Maxim Shalunov is in the typical mold of a Russian high-flying forward as he possesses the elite skating ability, shiftiness and offensive puck skills that makes him a constant offensive threat.  Shalunov has improved his defensive awareness substantially since being drafted in the fourth round (2011).  Shalunov owns the size, skill and creativity to become a true offensive weapon at the next level.  Brendan Ross


Fantasy Outlook: C+


Shalunov plays an offensive-oriented skilled game and should probably be owned in deep keeper leagues.
