by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks

SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has assigned forward Nikolay Goldobin (goal-DOBIN) to HIFK of the Finnish Elite League.

“Nikolay had a great training camp and showed us that he is a highly-skilled player, said Wilson. “He is going to be an important player for this organization moving forward but at this time, in conjunction with direction from his agent Igor Larionov, we feel his development is best suited playing in a league against men, similar to the path Tomas Hertl took.”

The six-foot, 185-pound native of Moscow, Russia was the Sharks first-round selection (27th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.
