BANFF, Alta. — Prospect forward Ivan Telegin has been suspended by the Winnipeg Jets for not reporting to their AHL farm team in St. John's, NL, the NHL team confirmed this morning.
The 21-year-old winger, who has two years remaining on his entry-level NHL contract, told a teammate on social media he was heading back to Russia, his home country.
Telegin had been assigned to the AHL team early last week.
The Jets issued a brief comment this morning through their communications department that said: "The Winnipeg Jets have suspended Ivan Telegin for failure to report to the St. John's IceCaps due to personal reasons."
Telegin suffered through a concussion and post-concussion symptoms for much of last season, dragging into the spring and summer. The speedy forward managed just 34 games for the IceCaps as a pro rookie. He had reported to the Jets camp for the rookie tournament in Penticton, B.C., earlier this month and had played in three exhibition games for the Jets this month, recording one assist.
