Artyom Andreyevich Chubarov (Russian: Артём Чубаров) (born December 13, 1979) was a professional ice hockey player. He last played with HC Dynamo Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He also played for the Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Artyom Chubarov was selected 31st overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He was the 2nd selection for the Vancouver Canucks. Prior to this, he spent four years playing in Russian ice hockey leagues, including the Torpedo organization in Nizhny Novgorod and HC Dynamo Moscow. Chubarov would spend one final season with Dynamo, which was highlighted by playing for the gold-medal-winning Russian team at the 1999 World Junior Championships in Winnipeg. Chubarov scored the winning goal in overtime of the final game against Canadian goaltender Roberto Luongo in the final game to give his team a 3–2 victory.

He then joined the Canucks for most of the 1999–2000 season, spending the rest with Syracuse of the AHL. He missed most of the 2000–01 season, playing only one game, after a shoulder injury while with Kansas City of the IHL.

Between the 1999–2000 and 2001–02 seasons, Chubarov would switch from the Canucks to their farm teams, playing for Syracuse, Kansas City, and Manitoba. He set a new NHL record by becoming the first player in NHL history to begin his career with four consecutive game-winning goals.

By the 2002–03 season, he finally earned a permanent spot with the Canucks as a faceoff specialist and defensive centre, helping them to the playoffs in both 2002–03 and 2003-2004.

With the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Chubarov joined his former team Dynamo Moscow. At the end of the lockout, it was reported he had refused to rejoin the Canucks, instead choosing to play in Russia. On August 22, 2005, he was signed by Avangard Omsk of the Super League, leaving Dynamo.

Chubarov joined Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod of the newly formed KHL to start the 2008–09 season.
