Matt Dalton(30) Vityaz Chekhov / Providence Bruins
With nowhere to go in the Bruins‘ system, undrafted, 3rd year pro, goaltender Matt Dalton(30) packs his bags and heads to Russia joining Vityaz Chekhov of the KHL for 2011/2012.
The Bruins decided to not give him a qualifying offer. He’s been mostly uneven in between the pipes for the last couple of seasons with the P-Bruins so that wasn’t surprising.
Providence should make a big Calder Cup playoff bid this year (they’ve missed it two straight seasons) with Anton Khudobin getting signed.
