The Nipawin Hawks have traded Yan Kalashnikov to the Soo Thunderbirds of the NOJHL for future considerations.
Yan had a goal and 8 assists in 21 games this season, and I will never forget calling his first SJHL goal. He just couldn't find his scoring touch in the SJHL and now the Belarussian turned Coquitlam product is heading east.
I want to thank Yan for being such a beauty during his time here. The kid deserved a lot more points than he had, and I for one, wouldn't be surprised if he puts up points from here on out.
