The Ogden Mustangs have added former teammate of star goaltender Artur Ogandzhanyan and fellow Ukrainian national player Gleb Krivoshapkin for the 2019-20 season.

Ogandzhanyan and Krivoshapkin are both from Kharkov, Ukraine and grew up playing on the same teams. While Ogandzhanyan made his way to the US a few seasons ago, Krivoshapkin stayed in Ukraine. For the past two seasons, Krivoshapkin has played for HK Kremenchuk in Ukraine’s top professional league, alongside much older players, some of which have KHL experience. He’s racked up an impressive 47 points in 75 games and was named an assistant captain, as an 18 year old last season. He also has international experience, playing alongside Ogandzhanyan on the Ukrainian national U-18 and U-20 teams. Krivoshapkin has 12 points in 18 games of international competition.

Krivoshapkin describes himself as a serious competitor and a leader.

“I’m ready for work and big wins,” Krivoshapkin said.

Krivoshapkin stands at 5-feet-10-inches and 176 pounds. Born in 2000, he still has another season of eligibility remaining after this season. He’s a speedy forward, with good hands, who can see the ice well, get into scoring areas and put the puck in the net.

Here’s how the 2019-20 roster stands, as announced, up to this point:

G – Artur Ogandzhanyan
D – Johan Zöllner
D – Christian Phinney
D – Oliver Wieringa
F – Harry Gulliver
F – Alex Engan
F – Nick Garza
F – Gleb Krivoshapkin
