One of the loudest transfers has been made by KHL’s Torpedo Nizhny-Novgorod team. They announced that they have signed Chris Wideman to a one-year deal. The 30-year-old American had spent most of his professional career playing for the Senators organization, both in NHL and AHL. Wideman spent the previous season in the AHL playing for the San Diego Gulls.
KHL veteran Dmitri Kagarlitsky has returned to Dynamo Moscow after spending a year with SKA. After an impressive season with Dynamo the previous year, leagues powerhouse – St.Petersburgh acquired the player to boost their squad. However, now he has been traded back to Dynamo. It’s expected that Kagarlitsky will play on the same line Vadim Shipachyov and Dmitri Jaskin creating the top trio. The Moscow team will have to hope that he will be able to repeat what he did during the 18/19 season when he recorded 61 points (24G+37A) in 61 games.
SKA has also said goodbye to their long-time winger Maxim Karpov who has joined Metallurg Magnitogorsk on a two-year deal. Ilya Kablukov has followed his teammate’s path signing a one-year deal with the Magnitogorsk club.
Meanwhile, Eric O’Dell has found himself a new home. He’s headed to Novosibirsk after spending a year with Metallurg and having his worst KHL season to date earning only 17 points in 46 games.
