Alexander Barabanov Hockey Stats and Profile at hockeydb.com
Seems like an AHL signing tbh, but sometimes guys surprise after coming over.
another player under 6' that Dubas couldn't resist!
Of the available Russians, I'm more interested in Grigorenko.
Alexander Barabanov, RW, 26 (KHL)
Barabanov’s stats were unspectacular with SKA St. Petersburg this season, but there’s still a lot to like about his game. Barabanov had 46 points in the KHL last season and has been a jack of all trades for Russia in international play the past few years, so it’s understandable why teams have taken an interest in bringing him over. Barabanov was linked to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Arizona Coyotes earlier this season with others also believed to be in the running, so expect him to move over to the NHL next season and fight for a spot on a team that needs extra speed and two-way reliability.

Not sure he is worth a roster spot...
Any lame size joke attempts made yet?
At best he is a 4th liner if we let go of a number of other players. I do not really see the fit otherwise, and even then it is probably not a great fit.
Reminds me of Leo Komarov. He seems to strongly built. Skating looks a bit average despite what they're saying. Seems to play intelligently. Good enough for their national team. Should we really sneer at this potential signing?
A small but very fast forward apparently. Kyle loves these mid 20's KHL players doesn't he?
Lol! 3rd post......
I salute the consistency of some folks to not look beyond height.
Purely an AHL signing right now but you know, everyone has to be 6'2 and 200 points to be any good or any use....
Ohp sorry @Cor didn't see your thread already
Damn with those whole Corona virus stuff going on dubas still has time for work. Good too see. He is mastering WFH
Cool. Sounds like Trevor Moore with better dangles.
I love the Euro UFA market; add some more please.
Lots of interesting names on that list. Okulov conspicuous by his absence.
Seems like he’s more of a two-way player, so just looking at his stat line won’t tell us much.
Worth a flyer.
Has some Jeff Skinner in his game.
Name a small player who is actually good?
I will wait
You might have to because it's a really long list
Kane? Point? Quinn?
Free wallet who can compete for a bottom of the roster spot.
Worse case he can fill a role as a high end AHLer.
Lol, going to give you the benefit of the doubt that this is a sarcastic post.
...... otherwise, you’ve stuck a Kick Me Hard sign an your derrière.
Nice. I see a little Petri Kontiola is his game too.
We need this guy in our system minimum. Maybe he is good enough already too.
Maple Leafs interested in record-breaking KHL goalie Timur Bilyalov - Sportsnet.ca
He is? I hope its Provorov!
