The Olympiques select Evgenii Kashnikov in the Import Draft

With the 12th overall pick in the CHL Import Draft, the Olympiques have selected Thursday Russian defenseman Evgenii Kashnikov.

Kashnikov, 16, has split last season between the U17 and U18 CSKA Moscow teams, with whom he scored a combined five goals and 18 assists for a total of 23 points in 42 games. The 6-foot-4, 165 lbs defenseman also registered seven points in eight playoff contests with the U18.

Kashnikov will be the second European player on the Gatineau team in 2019-20, joining David Aebischer from Switzerland at the Olympiques’ blue line.
