Yesterday the news broke out of Russia, and Kravtsov himself took to Instagram to thank the fans for their support of him over the years. You can check out our story on that, everything regarding his original assignment to Hartford, and his return to the KHL here.
It is unknown when Kravtsov will re-enter the lineup, and I am sure we’ll learn more at the Rangers’ next media availability before the game in Anaheim.
Today the Wolf Pack take on the Lehigh Valley Phantoms at home, and will play them on the road tomorrow. They then travel to Charlotte for two games vs. the Checkers on Tuesday December 17, and Wednesday December 18, and will return home for a matchup vs. the Providence on Saturday December 21.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
