Antropov, who himself hails from the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan, joined the Atlanta Thrashers as a free agent four seasons ago, and came with the team to Winnipeg. He became a UFA again after this past season, when the Jets elected not to re-sign him.

Antropov scored six goals and notched 18 points in 40 games last season. The 6'6" forward was a 1998 first-round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
