It was a tough season for Chicago Blackhawks forward Artem Anisimov. 

Anisimov was bounced up and down the lineup and saw his goal production dip from 20 to 15 goals.

He was surrounded by trade rumors throughout the season and those likely won't go away this summer as the Hawks will be up against the salary cap once again. 

He did receive some good news on Wednesday as he's been officially named to Team Russia's 2019 IIHF World Hockey Championships' roster. 

Anisimov registered three gaols and five assists for Russia at the tournament last year and hopefully this will help get him ready for a great 2019-20 season.
