Wasn’t he the center for Lafreniere in the Q? Had some nice numbers if I recall. I wonder why they are terminating the contract?

Pretty extreme way to jump off the Flames bandwagon.

Could be personal reasons....

That, and an over-abundance of smallish forwards in the system. Probably felt that the NHL isn't happening for him.

He was "Loaned" to his Russian team for part of the season.

This sort of thing would be mutual, so I'd guess he has a contract offer from the KHL that he wants to sign that pays better than his minor-league salary with the Flames, and he needs to be free of his NHL contract before he can sign it.

The Flames have loaned him to the KHL in each of the last two seasons, so it doesn't seem like he's in the plans.


With a lot of non-Russian players leaving the KHL due to everything that's happening, there might be a good opportunity for bubble Russian players to go back home.

He heard that Big Z likely isn't going to be back next season, and said to himself, "If Big Z can't make it, what chance is there for Little Z?"

Makes room for a Ryan Francis and/or Daniil Chechelev contract. Flames sitting at 46/50 right now.

I don't think Francis is getting signed. Think they're looking at him with a touch of apprehension, considering his trajectory isn't far off from Zavvy's.
