The Owen Sound Attack have acquired forward Kirill Nizhnikov from the Sudbury Wolves in exchange for a Conditional 4th Round Pick in 2022 and a Conditional 5th Round Pick in 2023.
The 19-year-old most recently played in the OHL with the Sudbury Wolves, but finished his 2018-19 season with Almaz Cherepovets in the MHL. The Russian forward was originally drafted 7th overall in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection by the Mississauga Steelheads.
Attack General Manager Dale DeGray thinks he’s ready to make a big impact: “He’s 6’2, 190. He has good size and a nice scoring touch. I think he’s ready for a big year in the OHL. We’re excited to have him come to Owen Sound and turn some heads around the league.”
Nizhnikov has scored 26 goals and added 40 assists in 126 career OHL games.
