Why would he not? Do we know what his aspirations are? Maybe he does want to stay in Russia all his life, or maybe he wants to try NA and he knows he ain't gonna be in the NHL even as a back up anywhere off the bat, therefote the AHL is the logical place to start for a young goalie like him to try to make it in NA. He's still young and is a beast at least physically, if I'm not mistaken he's Markstrom's size. Like I said he seems to be doing decent in arguably the 2nd best league in the world, I take it as both a quality and quantity depth move. Clemmensen gets traded, we have Markie and Theodore with the Cats and Sergei/DGM in the AHL why not?
