Yesterday morning the Gwinnett Gladiators, the Phoenix Coyotes’ ECHL team outside of Atlanta, announced the signing of former OKC Barons defenseman Kirill Tulupov. Last season during the NHL lockout Tulupov played in Russia with the KHL teams Avtomobilist and Amur Khabarovsk, and he returned to the United States to finish out the season in mid February with the Coyotes’ CHL Arizona Sundogs. Tulupov was a third round pick (#67 overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils.

We wish you all the best Kirill!
