Bulldogs Select Artyom Grushnikov in CHL Import Draft
HAMILTON, ONTARIO. With the 16th overall selection in the 2020 CHL Import Draft the Hamilton Bulldogs have selected defenseman Artyom Grushnikov from CSKA Moscow Krasnaya Armiya in the MHL, the top junior league in Russia.
Grushnikov, 17, has long been regarded a top prospect first appearing at the U16 level for CSKA Moscow at the age of 14. Since that time, the 6'2'', 185lbs defenseman has appeared for CSKA Moscow at the U17 & U18 levels and joined Krasnaya Armiya (the legendary Red Army program) during the 2019-20 season.
Internationally, Grushnikov has excelled appearing at the U16, U17 & U18 levels for his native Russia including a triple gold 2019 winning the U17 World Hockey Championship, Hlinka- Gretzky Cup and World Junior A Challenge proving to be a key contributor at each.
