The Senators centre was officially suspended by the club yesterday when he balked at being sent to the club's AHL affiiliate in Binghamton and jumped on a flight back to Russia.
Kaigorodov, who has already received part of his $600,000 signing bonus from his $2-million contract, will rejoin his club Magnitogorsk after his failed experiment to play in the NHL.
Kagorodov, 23, a much-ballyhooed signing by GM John Muckler in the off-season, simply wasn't good good enough to be the club's second line centre and didn't look like he has the desire to compete.
Does this have any impact on the salary cap if his ~$1 M is effectively declined or is it a sunk cost?
