News: Loktionov will sign with Yaroslavl of the KHL, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Impact: After undergoing shoulder surgery in May, Loktionov noticed a cool market in free agency this summer, never even earning a training camp invite with an NHL team. Though the 24-year-old boasts 155 games of experience, he's never been much more than a third-pairing player during stints with the Kings, Devils and Hurricanes. In returning to Russia, he'll look to demonstrate he's healthy in an effort to earn an NHL contract next season.
