I’m actually a bit disappointed to see him heading to the KHL, as I think he could’ve been fairly successful with a permanent spot in the lineup. That said, he would’ve already been 27 years old next season and he probably wasn’t going to get that opportunity. His departure means another young forward will get more ice time and while it’s too bad to see him go, this won’t impact the Kings in any major way.
