ARTHUR KALIYEV BECOMES FIRST OHL BULLDOG TO SCORE 50 GOALS IN ONE SEASON

 

Arthur Kaliyev has hit the 50-goal mark becoming the first Hamilton Bulldog to accomplish that feat since the team re-located to Hamilton for the 2015-2016 season.

The 17-year old scored on a patented Arthur Kaliyev one-timer Saturday against the London Knights. The goal came fittingly on the power-play, Kaliyev’s league leading 20th power-play goal of the season.

Kaliyev now joins some elite company on the list of OHL players who have scored 50 goals as a 17-year old.  The list includes Tony Tanti (81), Eric Lindros (71) Steven Stamkos (58) and the last player to do it, Alex DeBrincat (51) of the Erie Otters in the 2014-15 season. Of note, John Tavares scored 72 goals as a 16-year old for the Oshawa Generals in the 2006-07 season.

Arthur is also closing in on 100 points (97) which would also be a first in Bulldogs OHL franchise history.

Kaliyev has been red hot since the calendar flipped to 2019 with 24-goals in 25-games and a total of 43-points over that same 25-game stretch.

In his rookie season (2017-2018), Kaliyev had 31-goals and 48-points

Kaliyev was the Bulldogs 2nd round pick (26) in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection and is rated by NHL Central Scouting as an “A” prospect (potential 1st round pick) for the 2019 NHL Entry Draft in June.
