The Windsor Spitfires announced Tuesday that 2020 import draft selection Daniil Sobolev has signed an Ontario Hockey League standard player agreement with the Hockey Club and is set to suit up for the 2020-21 season.

With the 40th overall selection in the 2020 CHL Import Draft, the Windsor Spitfires claimed the rights to a two-way defenceman.

The Moscow Spartak defenceman had 6 points in 48 games and was able to suit up at a national/international level in the U16-U18 age groups for team Russia.

"We were excited when we drafted Daniil and now are ecstatic to announce his signing. He will be an immediate fan favourite with his two way play. He is an NHL prospect with that type of ability, and an addition that bolsters our roster immediately." Said General Manager Bill Bowler on the signing.

Sobolev said, "I am very excited to have been signed by the Windsor Spitfires. I look forward to making an impact with the team this season."
