After an unsuccessful season in New York, Alex Frolov has decided to leave the NHL and sign with Avangard Omsk of the KHL.
Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos confirmed the signing Thursday afternoon. Frolov, an unrestricted free agent, reportedly signed a three-year deal with the Russian club after making $3 million with the New York Rangers last season.
Frolov was a major disappointment with the Rangers, finishing with only 16 points in 43 games before tearing his ACL in January. The two-time 30-goal scorer was brought in to support Marian Gaborik but struggled to fit in with head coach John Tortorella.
The Russian forward played with the Los Angeles Kings from 2002-2010 after the team selected him 20th overall in the first round of the 2000 draft.
