The Carolina Hurricanes have placed forward Alexander Pashin on the waiver wire for the purpose of contract termination.

Alexander Pashin, drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2020 NHL entry draft, is parting ways with the team. The Hurricanes have placed Pashin on waivers with the intention of terminating his contract.

Pashin, selected in the seventh round as the 199th overall pick, had signed an entry-level deal with the Hurricanes in May 2022. Despite not playing in the NHL, he spent the 2022-23 season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves before returning to Russia to play in the KHL. This season, the 21-year-old played 47 games with Moscow Spartak, tallying 10 goals and 19 points.

The 21-year-old played the entire 2023-24 season in the KHL."

While it's unclear whether the decision was mutual or initiated by one party, it's noteworthy that Pashin returned to the KHL after the Hurricanes severed ties with the Chicago Wolves, their former AHL affiliate. However, the Hurricanes and Wolves have since reestablished their NHL/AHL relationship.

"What an absolutely comical waste of time for everybody involved."

I feel bad for prospects like Alexander Pashin and Tuukka Tieksola, who'd just came overseas for their first year and then had to uproot and go back home because of the Wolves management being clowns."

Overall, the termination of Pashin's contract highlights the complexities and challenges faced by young prospects navigating their hockey careers.
