Tucson Roadrunners first Russian player gives Russian lesson

Posted: Updated:

Artur Tyanulin is the Tucson Roadrunners' first Russian player as the team enters its second season.

Tyanulin is considered to be one of the top Russian forward prospects and dominated for the Ottawa 67s last season, scoring 24 goals and putting up 85 points in just 67 games. The 20-year old has a shot to help the Coyotes Wing depth, and turned down the opportunity to stay in his hometown of Kazan, Russia to take play in North America again.

News 4 Tucson sports reporter Ari Alexander, who speaks Russian, and Tyanulin teach you some hockey-related Russian words and Alexander learns about one of the team's newest players.
