Former Leaf, Devil Alex Suglobov Traded To Spartak Moskva

Traktor Chelyabinsk have traded forward Alexander Suglobov to Spartak Moskva for a 5th round selection in the 2013 KHL draft.

Suglobov was drafted in the second round, 56th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Suglobov made his NHL debut with the Devils during the 2003–04 NHL season, playing one game in which he registered two shots. He spent most of that season with the Albany River Rats, the Devils’ American Hockey League(AHL) affiliate. He put up 22 points in 35 games with the River Rats in that, his first season.

On December 17, 2005, Suglobov scored his first NHL goal with the Devils in Carolina against the Hurricanes. On March 8, 2006 Suglobov was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Ken Klee and would split the season with the Leafs and Marlies of the AHL. Unable to break into the NHL, Suglobov left for Russia on May 21, 2007, signing with CSKA Moscow of the Russian Superleague and has played in Russia ever since.
