Playing careerEdit

Leading up to the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Yakimov was lauded as a top prospect[1] who was Ranked 11th in the NHL Central Scouting Bureau's Final 2013 International Skater Rankings.[2] whilst playing with Reaktor of the MHL, a junior affiliate, of HC Nizhnekamsk Neftekhimik.

After his first season in the Kontinental Hockey League with Neftekhimik, Yakimov was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Edmonton Oilers on 5 August 2014.[3]

On July 28, 2016, Yakimov was loaned by the Oilers to return for a third stint with HC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk of the KHL for the 2016–17 season.[4]

Continuing his loan into the 2017–18 season. He notched a career high 8 goals and matched his previous seasons 11 points in 56 games.

Unsigned from the Oilers, but his rights retained by the club, Yakimov opted to continue in the KHL with Nizhnekamsk. During the 2018–19 season, while stagnating with Nizhnekamsk in registering just 3 points in 27 games, Yakimov was traded to Avangard Omsk on November 26, 2018.[5] His stay with Avangard was brief, after going scoreless in 5 games, he was again traded, joining his third KHL outfit, Severstal Cherepovets, on December 23, 2018.[6]
