from Peoria to St.Petersburg?
He's not loaned. The ssignment to Peoria is to close out any legal issues in the NHL. It doesn't matter for the KHL. For KHL he's a STL player signed by SKA within the 3 NHLers limit. There is no difference between a player with a one way contract and a two way in this case.
