There have been many complaints regarding the CHL’s rule of not allowing 16-year-old imports to play in their league. The annual import draft allows CHL teams to have up to two foreign players on their roster, assuming they are at least 17 years old.

Well, the Saint John Sea Dogs are not complaining anymore, as with the first pick in 2009 CHL Import Draft, the Sea Dogs drafted Stanislav Galiev, a 6-foot-1, 177-pound forward from Moscow, Russia.

“He's a really crafty player,” Sports Illustrated says. “Strong on his feet and really creative with the puck. He's having trouble finishing right now, but he's piling up points with his playmaking skills.”
