2020 Fantasy Outlook
Yelesin had an unremarkable first season in North America, picking up five points in 38 appearances with AHL Stockton. He also made four appearances for the Flames, but failed to get his first NHL point. The undrafted Russian blueliner has only reached double digits in points once, in 2018-19 with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL. He's unlikely to make the Opening Night roster in 2020-21, and his physical, low-scoring style translates into very little long-term fantasy appeal. There's no reason for dynasty managers to track Yelesin's progress. Read Past Outlooks

Yelesin signed a contract with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL on Thursday, Ryan Pike of Flames Nation reports.
ANALYSIS
Yelesin is a pending restricted free agent, so the Flames could retain his rights by extending a qualifying offer. That may not be likely, as he played in only four NHL games in 2019-20. He was limited to AHL action in 2020-21, notching seven points in 28 contests with Stockton. At 25 years old, a solid performance in Russia could get Yelesin back on an NHL team's radar, but that is probably a long shot.
