One of the Anaheim Ducks’ pending unrestricted free agents, Chris Wideman, has signed a deal to play with the KHL’s Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod for the 2020-21 season.

It’s not shocking to see Wideman moving on, after spending a full season in the AHL. It was somewhat surprising that he didn’t get into any NHL games this year and instead spent the entire year in San Diego, where he scored nine goals and 31 points in 53 games. That said, at 30 years old, his days of playing full-time in the NHL were likely over. If he doesn't return to the NHL down the road, Wideman ends his NHL career with 16 goals and 45 points in 181 games.
