Alexander Pashin, taken by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2020 NHL entry draft, is having his contract with the team terminated via waivers

The Carolina Hurricanes and a prospect taken in the 2020 draft are ready to part ways. It has been announced that Alexander Pashin has been placed on waivers by the Carolina Hurricanes for the purpose of terminating his contract.

#CauseChaos Alexander Pashin unconditional waivers for purpose of contract termination."

Pashin was taken in the seventh round in 2020, 199th overall. He was in a year two of an entry-level deal he signed with the Carolina Hurricanes in May of 2022. He has yet to play in the NHL. Pashin spent the 2022-23 season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves, and then returned home to Russia to play in the KHL. The 21-year-old played 47 games with Moscow Spartak this season, scoring 10 goals and 19 points.

"The #Canes have placed 2020 seventh round draft pick Alexander Pashin on unconditional waivers for the purpose of contract termination.

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

There's no word on whether this was a mutual decision or whether one side initiated the contract termination. However, it's worth noting that Pashin returned to the KHL when the Hurricanes ended their affiliation with the Chicago Wolves, leaving them with no farm team. The Hurricanes and Wolves recently reached a new deal and have resurrected 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."
