The Calgary Flames have placed prospect Dmitry Zavgorodniy on termination waivers, per Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Zavgorodny (CAL) on waivers for purposes to terminate contract
— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) May 26, 2022
A 21-year-old right shot winger originally from Omsk, Russia, Zavgorodniy was drafted by the Flames in the seventh round of the 2018 NHL Draft and is currently in the second year of his entry level deal.
Zavgorodniy’s representative declined comment when reached by FlamesNation.
A speedy winger who played in the QMJHL with Rimouski as an import and put up good numbers, Zavgorodniy just hasn’t adjusted to North American pro hockey as well as anybody had hoped.
