The North Bay Battalion selected Russian forward Matvei Petrov first overall in the CHL Import draft this morning.

The 17 year old right winger is from Moscow.

He scored 5 goals and 4 assists in 21 games with his Russian club last season.

The team’s two imports are both from Russia.

The Troops acquired forward Matvey Guskov from London earlier this month.
