Kevin Dallman

Quote:
Although he had a lack of success in the NHL, he became an offensive leader with Barys Astana, leading the KHL in scoring among defenseman with 28 goals, 30 assists for 58 points in 53 games.
Dallman considered becoming a citizen of Kazakhstan, but decided against it. In April of 2012, it appeared his family was banned from Kazakhstan because his wife criticized the government in a blog. Apparently, the team consequently discarded his new 3-year contract.[4] Kevin has also expressed interest in playing for Kazakhstan internationally.[5]
On May 18, 2012 Astana Barys team managers refused to extend the contract with Kevin Dallman. “We have agreed with his agent that if the team fulfills its task and reaches the final of the tournament, we will return to discussing the contract’s extension. But the team didn’t reached the final and Kevin, himself, didn’t show his best skills in the play-off. The issue in question was whether to prolong his contract or not. The hockey player asked for a four-year contract and the sum was quite large. That is why the decision was made not to extend the contract,” Barys president Nurlan Orabayev said. [6]

After a failed North American career, Dallman moved to Kazakstan to play in the KHL. For four years he dominated the league, scoring 192 points in 214 games. Now that his contract is up, and that his adopted home country has exiled him, is there a chance he signs in North America? Can any European fans or people who have seen him play shed some more light on the situation?

Ah ****. I was hoping the Islanders would sign him.

Edit: Do you have a link? I can't find it anywhere on the internet.
