2024 NHL Draft

Michigan State's Artyom Levshunov thriving on unconventional path before 2024 NHL Draft

EAST LANSING, Michigan – Around the Michigan State hockey offices they jokingly call it “Arty Time.”

About an hour later he swaggered into a conference room with a big smile, shoeless, for one of his first-ever interviews in English. He was slightly delayed because he was getting in an additional set of wrist curls.
