Prospect round-up: Lokomotiv scratches Kadeikin; Ehn, Frolunda drop playoff opener

In the KHL, in playoff action, Alexander Kadeikin didn’t play as Lokomotiv Yaroslavl lost 2-0 to SKA St. Petersburg.

SKA got two goals from Ilya Kovalchuk, and SKA now leads the semifinal series 2 games to 1. If I may be impolite, barring a termination of his KHL contract, Kadeikin has likely played his last game as a Red Wings prospect.

In the SHL, in playoff action, the underdog had its day as Christoffer Ehn’s Frolunda Indians lost 2-1 to the Malmo Redhawks. Ehn finished at -1 with 1 shot, winning 33% of his faceoffs in 14:03 played.

Malmo leads the best-of-seven quarterfinal series 1-0, and Ehn is under contract to the Red Wings, set to join the Wings’ legion of checking forward prospects in North America next season.

  1. It’s a shame about Kadeikin. We never got a chance to see him over here. Hate to see prospects let go.

      1. I really don’t know the background, but did KH ‘over-ripen’ Kadeiken to extinction?

        1. No. I don’t understand why the assumption is that Ken Holland is somehow responsible for Kadeikin’s status–the Wings never got a chance to see him in person since he was drafted, and that’s because *Kadeikin* signed a long-term deal with his Russian team, got traded and signed a long-term deal with his current Russian team.

    1. My job isn’t to guess about who might come next, though as the draft nears, I’ll try to post stuff like Craig Button’s lists…
