From John Shipley at the Pioneer Press,
Roman Voloshenko’s stint as a Wild prospect appears over after he quit the club’s top minor league team to play in Russia.
“I told him, ‘I think if you go home, you’ll never play in the NHL,’ ” Wild general manager Doug Risebrough said Saturday.
Voloshenko was the Wild’s second-round pick in the 2004 entry draft, 42nd overall. A 6-foot-1, 200-pound wing, he made a splash in his debut with the Houston Aeros, earning 33 goals among 60 points in 69 games in 2005-06.
