Evgeny Artyukhin (born April 4, 1983) is a Russianmarker professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career

Artyukhin was drafted in the 3rd round, 94th overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to be selected, Evgeny played with Podolsk from junior to the top level Russian Super League. One year after being drafted by the Lightning, Evgeny made his North American debut with the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) for the 2002–03 season. Artyukhin also skated in 6 games with Russia at the 2003 World Junior Championships, recording 1 goal and 10 penalty minutes, helping Russia capture the gold medal.

In the 2003–04 season, after signing with the Lightning on July 15, 2003, Evgeny made his professional debut, appearing in 36 games with the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League (AHL), recording 3 goals and 3 assists for 6 points while racking up 111 penalty minutes, which was good for 3rd on the Bears in penalty minutes. He also played in 6 games with Pensacola of the ECHL, scoring 1 goal and adding 14 penalty minutes.

For the 2004–05 season, Evgeny spent the entire season at the AHL level with the Springfield Falcons, recording 9 goals and 19 assists in 62 games. His 28 points ranked 5th on the team and he was tied for 3rd in assists. He also was tied for 3rd on the Falcons with 3 power play goals. His 142 penalty minutes ranked 6th on the team.

After spending most of the 2005–06 season with the Lightning, Artyukin left for Russia after contract negotiations soured with Tampa Bay.

When the 2006–07 season ended with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, Artyukhin rejected a $475,000 contract from the Tampa Bay Lightning. His agent, Mark Gandler, asked Tampa Bay to trade him, claiming that the Lightning were punishing Artyukhin for not resigning a year before. It is believed that Evgeny was seeking a $1 million contract. In 2007–08, Artyukhin played for HC CSKA Moscow, recording 9 points and 99 penalty minutes in 23 games. On July 7, 2008, the Tampa Bay Lightning officially re-signed Artyukhin to a two year deal worth $1.9 million.

On August 13, 2009, he was traded to the Anaheim Ducks for Drew Miller and a 3rd round draft pick.

Suspensions

On March 7, 2006, Artyukhin was suspended two games by the NHL for an incident that occurred while he was in an altercation with the Ottawa Senators' forward Antoine Vermette. After hitting Vermette into the boards, he got into a shoving match with him. During the altercation, he ripped the helmet of Vermette off his head and hit him with it. He received a Match Penalty on the play.

On January 19, 2009, he was suspended another two games for hitting Florida Panthers forward Ville Peltonen with a knee-on-knee hit. He was assessed a minor penalty for tripping on the play.
