The Calgary Flames have made their final selection at the 2021 NHL Draft. With their seventh round pick, 205th overall, they’ve drafted goaltender Arsenii Sergeyev.
Sergeyev was the 8th-ranked North American goalie by Central Scouting. He wasn’t ranked by FC Hockey.
A December 2002 birthday, Sergeyev is originally from Yaroslavl, Russia. He’s listed at 6’3″ and 192 pounds. He came over to North America in 2019-20 and split time between the NAHL’s New Jersey Junior Titans, the USHL’s Sioux Falls Stampede and the NCDC’s New Jersey Rockets.
He played his entire 2020-21 season with the amazingly-named Shreveport Mudbugs of the NAHL, where he posted an impressive 14-4-2 record with a 2.17 goals against average and .936 save percentage in 20 games. He led the Mudbugs to a championship.
Sergeyev is committed to the University of Connecticut for the 2022-23 season and will play with the USHL’s Tri-City Storm for the 2021-22 season.
