  • Kings' Mikhail Maltsev: Loaned to KHL club

    Maltsev was loaned to Spartak Moscow of the KHL on Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Maltsev has 56 games of NHL experience, but at 25 years old and on a two-way deal with the Kings this year, it's fair to question if he'll ever stick at hockey's highest level. The forward is expected to finish the campaign in the KHL.

    Maltsev had two shots on net and won all three faceoffs over 6:43 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

    Maltsev was recalled by the Avalanche in time to make the trip east for his season debut. He skated on the fourth line, a unit that's not yet established, as head coach Jared Bednar tried multiple combinations, and been given little TOI early in the season. Tuesday's on-ice usage did not deviate from the pattern. Maltsev and his mates had just two third-period shifts.

  • Avalanche's Mikhail Maltsev: Secures one-year deal

    Maltsev penned a one-year contract with Colorado on Wednesday.

    Maltsev played in 18 games for the Avs this past season in which he failed to register a single point.

  • Avalanche's Mikhail Maltsev: Takes the body

    Maltsev had two shots on goal and five hits in Thursday's 4-1 win over Los Angeles.

That's compared to the three checks thrown in six games over two stints earlier in the season. Clearly, the fourth-line forward received the message that he needs to be more feisty.
