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?
He probably makes a lot more in Russia right now and I don't think he can even get out of his contract to come here mid season. Maybe next year?
