Kabanov Sent To ECHL Stockton

Sound Tigers website: Announced Kirill Kabanov has been sent to Stockton of ECHL

Ct Post had article on move. 

Ct Post Michael Fornabaio had following:
 They’re framing it as a hockey decision; get him more minutes, work on his game in both ends, and so forth, sing along, and playing on the third line, he probably could use some more time. His “personal-reasons” absence this morning suggested more, and a source said Kabanov was late for a meeting and it wasn’t the first time.
NYIFC Comments:
No issue if conduct related. Having written that Kabanov (who scored) was the third line right wing Sunday, with no prospect on the top two lines at right wing.

Bridgeport had Joey Diamond as the first line right wing, Chris Bruton the second right winger. 

This is another reason you don't trade a franchise pick RW Niederreiter for Clutterbuck.

With Ullstrom in KHL, Joensuu in Edmonton, Niederreiter in Minnesota, and Nelson in New York the top drafted prospect depth has gone down significantly with Strome, Lee, Persson, Sundstrom, Quine.

Jason Clark was in the ECHL last season, he was on the same line as Kabanov Sunday.
