2012 CHL Import Draft results
Soo Greyhounds take Sergei Tolchinsky, making splash at CHL import draft (VIDEO)
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-7½ , 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.
