It will not be his first season in the KHL. Back in the 2020-21 season, he suited up for Traktor Chelyabinsk. From 2021 to 2023 he then traveled around quite a bit: he played in Canada, then in Sweden, then in Czechia, and ended up in Switzerland in mid-December.
For the SC Rapperswil-Jona Lakers, he recorded ten goals and twelve assists in 22 regular-season games. He added one goal to his tally in six playoff-games.
