Flint, Mich. – The Flint Firebirds announced today they have acquired defenseman Artem Guryev, a 2024 2nd round pick (owned originally by Hamilton), a 2023 3rd round pick and a 2026 3rd round pick for forward Brennan Othmann.
“We’re happy to welcome in Artem to the Flint Firebirds,” Head Coach and General Manager Ted Dent said. “He’s a big defenseman with a lot of skill and toughness that we believe complements our team well.”
Guryev stands at 6-foot-4, 220-pounds and was a 5th-round pick (#153 overall) of the San Jose Sharks in the 2021 NHL Draft. He has played in 45 games the last two seasons for Peterborough and has recorded 1 G and 11 A. The left-hand shot defense was a 2nd round pick (#22 overall) in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection.
“We’d like to thank Brennan for everything he did for us here in the Flint Firebirds organization,” Dent said. “He was a cornerstone piece of this franchise since being selected as the 2nd overall pick back in 2019 and his accomplishments here were record-breaking. We wish him nothing but the best the rest of the way in his hockey career.”
