Kaliyev becomes Bulldogs’ all-time points leader


Arthur Kaliyev used his signature quick release to fire home his 44th goal of the season on Saturday afternoon and in doing so, became the Hamilton Bulldogs new all-time points leader.

Kaliyev, who became the club’s all-time leading goal scorer on February 1st, surpassed Matthew Strome with his 248th career point in a Bulldogs uniform on Saturday as they fell 8-6 to the visiting Saginaw Spirit.

An 18-year-old from Staten Island, NY, Kaliyev has 98 points (44-54–98) in his third season with the club after being selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the second round (33rd overall) of the NHL Draft last summer. The 6-foot-2, 190Ib. right-winger is fifth in OHL scoring and second in league shots on goal with 288.

Kaliyev won an OHL Championship with the Bulldogs as a rookie in 2017-18 after being the club’s second round (26th overall) pick from the Detroit Compuware U16 program. He proceeded to record the first 100-point season in Bulldogs history in 2018-19, recording 51 goals and 51 assists as a sophomore.

Kaliyev represented the United States at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship this past January, recording six points (4-2–6) over five contests.
