March 2013 – In his second season with the Blades, Makarov has shown tremendous improvement in his statistics. Despite being away from the team to join Russia for the World Junior Tournament, he has improved in wins, losses, GAA, save percentage and shutouts. Makarov is quick across the crease and has a great glove hand but has a tendency to stay in net and not challenge shooters enough. If he can take away the angles from his opponents, his numbers will only get better
Fantasy Outlook: C+
Makarov has shown flashes of brilliance in net and as he matures, they may become more consistent. Once he learns to challenge shooters and cuts their angles he could take his steps to Buffalo quicker.
Great save vs. United States in the World Junior Championship
