Oil Kings Select D Ibragimov in Import Draft


July2,2014(ISN) – EDMONTON, ALTA. – The Edmonton Oil Kings selected Russian
defenceman Marsel Ibragimov with the 58th pick of the first round in
the CHL Import Draft Wednesday.

Ibragimov is a 6-foot-2, 185-pound defenceman who played
with the Moscow Dynamo under-18 team last season.

“He’s grown since last year and plays a simple game,” said
Oil Kings general manager Randy Hansch. “We felt it was important to add some
depth to our young defensive corps.”

The 16-year-old Ibragimov doesn’t turn 17 until August and
joins the Oil Kings’ group of 1997-born prospects looking to make the team for
next season.
