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.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
