He's signed by the Red Army for another season. He will need to establish him as a top pairing defenseman in the KHL if he wants to be considered a legitimate prospect a year from now. The kid will be 23 years old at the end the upcoming season and if he can't play at the KHL level at that age, the odds of him cracking the NHL are slim to none. Unless he's a top-shelf blueliner in the KHL next year, I doubt the Rangers give him a contract.
