Soshnikov inked a two-year contract with KHL club Salavat Yulaev Ufa on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Soshnikov spent much of the 2018-19 campaign watching from the press box, as the winger appeared in just 16 combined games between the NHL and AHL. In his five outings with the Blues, the winger notched a mere one shot on goal, five hits and two blocks while averaging a paltry 7:10 of ice time. Some early success with AHL Toronto kept the 25-year-old in the mix for a spot on the 23-man roster, but his inability to break into the lineup will see him return to his native Russia and likely marks the end of his NHL career.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Soshnikov was involved in one of the less flashy trades last February, coming to St. Louis after playing only three games in Toronto. Despite being 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Soshnikov isn't afraid to get his nose dirty, posting 24 hits in 15 games while averaging 11:10 of ice time. The 24-year-old should see an uptick from his 2017-18 offensive stats if he can secure a full-time position on the fourth line, but it won't be enough to vault him into fantasy stardom since chances for a top-nine role are slim-to-none.
Soshnikov put in a respectable rookie season with the Leafs in 2016-17, scoring five goals and adding four assists in 56 games as the team's fourth-line right winger. He's small and feisty with a real knack for killing penalties, which is what he'll do for the team in 2017-18. Soshnikov will also crash the net and drive opponents crazy, and his never-stop work ethic will keep him on coach Mike Babcock's favorite list. It just won't be enough to make him a fantasy fave.
