Klimovich is a tremendously skilled forward who dazzles with the puck on his stick, showcasing fantastic one-on-one finesse and the ability to weave through opponents with quick cuts and flashy stick handling. More often than not, Klimovich is decisive with the puck on his stick, able to identify attacking lanes as they open, and is able to find his way into high danger scoring areas for scoring opportunities. With the puck on his stick, he attacks with the mindset of a flashy and dynamic skilled finisher, constantly challenging defenders with one-on-one finesse while prodding for space in the offensive zone. While carrying the puck through the neutral zone, Klimovich is able to find lanes for zone entries with his ability to use skill and agility to weave through traffic, though his overall awareness with where he was on the ice seemed to be lacking at times. At times, there are instances of Klimovich stickhandling his way into trouble, seemingly having tunnel vision while in the offensive zone which can lead to offensive-zone turnovers when a simple dump off to a teammate would have preserved offensive zone possession. Klimovich’s tendency to play a somewhat selfish game with the puck on his stick also feeds into his identity as a shoot-first player. His playmaking awareness seems to be somewhat lacking in his play, and far too often he decides to fire the puck into blocked shooting lanes rather than looking for a pass to one of his teammates, and this tendency to do so showing up in the box score with a large number of his shots getting blocked and not reaching the net. When shooting the puck, however, it’s clear that Klimovich is well-versed in this area of the offensive game, as his shot release is quick and he more often than not generates good power on his wrist shot. While playing away from the puck, Klimovich routinely performs slightly underwhelmingly, as he was ends up coasting on both the forecheck and backcheck. He seems to be disinterested in the play when the puck was not on his stick. All-in-all, Klimovich showcases some offensive flash that allows him to be an effective situational offensive player, but he will need to show much further development in his overall 200-foot game in order to have success at the next level.
