Hamilton Bulldogs prospect Arthur Kaliyev will continue his busy off-season by getting some international experience.
Kaliyev will compete for Team U-S-A in the 2017 Five Nations Tournament that will be held from August 23-27 in Ostrava, Czech Republic. The tournament sees the United States compete against the host Czechs as well as Germany, Slovakia and Switzerland. Team USA finished with a perfect 4-0 record in last year’s event that was held in Dallas, TX.
The 16-year old was the Bulldogs 2nd round pick (26th overall) in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection. He was very impressive at the Bulldogs Rookie Orientation Camp in April and then signed a standard player agreement with the club in May.
The Russian-born Kaliyev played last season for the Detroit Compuware U16 where he scored 13 goals and added 5 assists, for 18 points in 19 games. He then went on to lead the team to the USA Hockey Youth Tier 1 U16 National Championship where he led the tournament in scoring.
