Sharks Select Goldobin 27th Overall

SAN JOSE - With the 27th overall selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson and Director of Scouting Tim Burke selected right wing Nikolay Goldobin (goal-DOBIN).

San Jose acquired the 27th and 62nd overall picks from Chicago in exchange for the 20th and 179th overall selections, meaning the team will make four selections in the top-62 and holds five picks in the first three rounds.

Goldobin, 18, spent last season with Sarnia of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), where he led his team in scoring, recording 94 points (38-56=94) and 21 penalty minutes in 67 games. His 94 points ranked seventh in the OHL, and he recorded at least a point in 22 consecutive games from Nov. 14, 2013 to Jan. 11, 2014. Goldobin recorded 43 points during the streak (21-22=43), including three four-point performances.

"His strengths are his offensive ability," said Burke. "It kept coming back to this guy. He has a lot of offensive ability, scoring, playmaking."

The six-foot, 185-pound native of Moscow, Russia, scored a goal and an assist and was named Team Cherry's Player of the Game at the 2014 CHL Top Prospects Game. He also added an assist in two games for the Russian Selects at the 2013-14 Junior Super Series.

Goldobin led all OHL rookies in both goals (30) and points (68) in 68 games during his first season in North America in 2012-13. He tallied an assist in four playoff games with Sarnia and was the runner-up for the OHL Rookie of the Year award while earning OHL All-Rookie Second Team honors.

In 2011-12, he tallied 22 points (13-9=22) in 50 games for Chekhov of Russia's Junior Hockey League (MHL) and represented his country at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament, collecting three points (1-2=3) in four games.

Goldobin was ranked 24th among North American Skaters by NHL Central Scouting.

The Sharks hold six selections on Day Two of the 2014 NHL Draft, which will resume tomorrow at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. Currently the Sharks have picks in the second (51st and 53rd overall), third (62nd and 81st overall), fifth (149th overall) and sixth rounds (171st overall).
