Bogdan Nikolaevich Rudenko (Russian: Богдан Николаевич Руде́нко; born September 13, 1977) is a retired ice hockey player.

Career overview[edit]

Rudenko began his career playing hockey in Russia with Avangard Omsk, but he quickly moved to Canada, playing for the Kitchener Rangers, Kingston Frontenacs, and Sarnia Sting. He then spent several seasons bouncing between various teams in the United Hockey League and the ECHL, before spending his final season with the Twin City Cyclones of the SPHL in 2008-2009. He also played for the Colorado Gold Kings in the WCHL as well as the Idaho Steelheads.

After Hockey[edit]

Rudenko was arrested in Colorado Springs, Colorado in allegedly connection with a murder near Charlotte, North Carolina, on December 25, 2009. He allegedly shot his childhood hockey mate to death in an automotive shop in Stallings, North Carolina on or before December 20. In fact, he did not commit murder. On January 20, 2012, the Union County DA dropped the murder charge against Rudenko, clearing his name.[1]
