So apparently Belarus players will still count as foreingers, that explains why platt was released :/
Because CSKA is going for the title and you need a lot of good players to win it. Platt is a 3rd liner on a contending team anyway.
And Sorokin playing in the VHL doesn't really harm anyone, he's not really a KHL starter yet anyways, on any team.
Geoff Platt signs 1 year deal with CSKA.
So Sibir finally gets their long awaited 1C in Tomas Vincour. Not great, definitely better than nothing.
Alexei Kaigorodov has signed a one year deal with Barys.
d-man cherepanov traded to amur can also earn some major minutes and impress.
not bad for them.
How come Erik Gustafsson didn't stay with Avangard, does anyone know?
From what I understand he just doesn't like playing in Russia all that much.
He hopes to come back to Avangard in 2016-2017. Right now he wants to be nearby to his newly born daughter
This is good news.
On another note:
Dan Spang has signed a one year deal with Torpedo.
Antropov said he conducts negotiations with couple NHL teams. But refused to name them.
The president of KHL Chernyshenko said that Belorussian and Kazakh players are not legioners in this season.
I guess the price for "Kazakh" players Bochensky and Dallman and "Belarussian" Platt just jumped up.
I heard it's Quebec Nordiques and Atlanta Thrashers. If it doesn't work out, I hear Hartford Whalers are ready to make a bid.
Thomas Larkin has signed with Medvescak, Big Defensman 1,96 plays for Italy and played last season in Springfield Falcons(Ahl)
Corey Trivino extends his contract with Admiral, signs extension after Try-out
Barys has had a couple of good Russians - Spiridonov and Glazachev. Kvasha, not so much. But, they should try and sign more.
Slovan released Matt Murley.
Signed with Nuremberg/DEL
Am I the only one surprised Skladnichenko stayed with the Marlies rather than return to the KHL?
No, Kuznya is the one KHL team where a forward won't get hindered. Skladnichenko doesn't have some amazing skillset, so it would be a better route for him back home IMO.
Saprykin to Avto.
Sochi has released Konstantin Koltsov, Torpedo has released Vyacheslav Makritsky, Vityaz has released Ilya Shinkevich and Spartak has released Dmitri Korobov and Andrei Antonov. This is most likely due to the new rule that counts players from Belarus as foreigners.
Here's an article with Alexei Zhamnov talking about the departures of Korobov and Antonov: http://tass.ru/sport/2214633
This IS due to this rule.
