According to Joe Yerdon of ProHockeyTalk, Blues forward Sergei Andronov has signed a deal with CSKA Moscow of the KHL. It is unclear at this time what the terms of the deal are.
Andronov, 25, was a third-round draft pick of the Blues in 2009. The Russian-born winger spent the past two seasons in the AHL, accumulating 21 goals and 24 assists in 112 games.
Andronov is listed as a restricted free agent on CapGeek.com. However, it is unclear if the Blues engaged in contract negotiations with him.
The announcement comes after the Blues signed forwards Jeremy Welsh, Benn Ferriero, John McCarthy and Peter Mueller all to one-year, two-way deals in the past month. Andronov- who seemingly did not fit into the Blues plans moving forward- must have seen the writing on the wall.
Andronov was recalled by the Blues three times last season, but was a healthy scratch each time.
