The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed defenseman Dmitry Korobov to a two-year, two-way contract today, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced.

Korobov, 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, played in a career-high 39 games last season. He also scored one goal and established career highs for assists with 10 and points with 11. Korobov also led all Dynamo defensemen, and was fourth on the team, with a plus-12 rating. He was also fifth among Minsk defensemen in average ice time with 18:52 per game.

Lee is the insurance for Salo. Also, I doubt he'll jump Oberg, Barberio and Gudas on the organizational depth chart to become first in line for a cup of coffee with the big club.

I was thinking the same thing. There was one thing that stood out to me in the article:

I'm no rocket scientist, but teams typically dress 6 defensemen a game, and he was fifth among defensemen on his team. I doubt he gets called up anytime during his first year. And depending on how he develops in that year, maybe he gets his shot in the second year.

dima is our arguably best defenceman, since we've lost rusty...

his upside - 2nd pairing with good pp skills, though i'm biased as you see

these stats don't tell the truth as it seems sometimes. he lost some playing time due to injury and return of podhradsky (marek sykora (our former head coach) favorite) who took his pp-time. but i think he WAS and IS capable to be the top-2 defenceman in khl which he was at the beginning of the previous season, while pairing with more-famous lukas krajicek.

he's not so defensive-minded as i've seen someone wrote. he has all the potential to become a solid two-way force

he often noticed in interviews that his biggest dream is to play in the nhl and he'll do anything to make that true

so, to sum it up:

strengths: size, attitude, makes safe plays, good first pass and ice vision, loves to set up teammates, makes good checks with his stick, not afraid of blocking shots (seen alot of pk time), and very good wrist shot.

weaknesses: physical play, doesn't use his size effectively enough (though he really progressed during last two years and started to hit the body ), so he may look some soft; has some tendency to giveaway the puck in own zone, though rarely;
and also this one, which sometimes drives me crazy - though, as i mentioned, he has really good wrist shot, he doesn't use it often even if he has good position to fire the puck he'll be looking for a teammates - i think there is some issues with confidence

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...qeUP5-M#t=140s
just watch his pass to kalyuzhny vs usa this year and i think you'll realize what i'm talking about

if you want to know something more - feel free to ask, since i'm following him since his junior days

Thank you for all that, kunabai. It's usually difficult to dig up any info on players coming from overseas, good thing HF's got members all over the world

Number five defenceman with 18:52 per game? Math doesn't work.

Yeah it does. As long as the four are all relatively close to him in TOI/G. Or one may be a defenseman who didn't play often, but when he did, he played a lot (injuries, for example)
