Pats Sinitsyn signs in KHL

Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats Senior VP and General Manager Chad Lang announced today Pats import defenceman Dmitry Sinitsyn has signed a professional contract with the KHL’s Dynamo Moscow.

Sinitsyn was the Pats’ 16th Overall selection in the 2013 CHL Import Draft and played his first WHL season in 2013-14.  The Moscow, RUS product suited up for 69 games while posting 44 points (10G, 34A) to lead the Pats defence in scoring over his rookie campaign.  His 44 points were tenth among WHL rookies and third among rookie defenders.  That performance led the Pats defender to be named the Pats’ Rookie of the Year.
Drafted in the 7th round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars, Sinitsyn attended Dallas’ Development Camp in Frisco, TX July 9th-12th.

Including Sinitsyn, the Pats currently have three import players on their roster with the other two slots being held by German forward Maximilian Kammerer and Russian defender Sergey Zborovsky.

looks like that's the end of Sinitsyn now... too bad was really hoping he would return as a 20yr old euro and help out our backend.

wish him the best of luck with his hockey career he was a treat to watch with the puck.

Just a quick question though Phil maybe you can get some info on it from Lang but what does the 2 way deal mean in the KHL? Is it just a rights deal for when his junior career is done with?

a two way deal is the same as the NHL and AHL with the KHL and their minor development league. I think its the JHL so he could play in the K or the J but he will not be back in the dub
