That's actually not what happened...
He played for CSKA in the KHL all the time till they were eliminated from the playoffs. Then he was sent to the MHL along with another 8 CSKA players under 23 year old, to help the CSKA farm team "Red Army". He played in the MHL only 2 games and after the loss in the 1st playoffs game he was kicked out of the team.
Looks like he didn't play hard enough cause he had 4 points in those 2 games, but the coach said "he was only skating around". Now he doesn't play anywhere.
He sticked in the KHL, but didn't stick in the MHL with the junior CSKA team.
