2012 CHL Import Draft results (CHL.ca)



Soo Greyhounds take Sergei Tolchinsky, making splash at CHL import draft (VIDEO) (Y! Sports):

Just one look was all it took for Kyle Dubas to know Sergei Tolchinsky is worth the calculated risk for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Small-market Ontario Hockey League teams typically don't land players such as Tolchinsky, a 5-foot-7 , 150-pound speedster who basically plays like a mini-Nail Yakupov is definitely the latter. However, if Yakupov and Alex Galchenyuk (who went through the regular draft, not the CHL import draft) could goes Nos. 1 and 3 overall in the NHL draft after starring for the Sarnia Sting, why shouldn't the Greyhounds try with a player who is also advised by Igor Larionov?

"I'd rather swing for the fence with a kid we know we is an elite player than bring in anybody who is average and below," Dubas said.
