Anton Babchuk: Another Solid Year in the KHL

Could Anton Babchuk and his lethal shot return to Raleigh next season? (photo by LTD)

Ex-Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Anton Babchuk is having a very good season over in the KHL.  His statline is (46GP 9G 13A 22P +17) and he recently made the KHL All Star team, (and scored a goal in that contest). 

After having a career year last season in Carolina, (72GP 16G 19A 33P +15) he had a disappointing playoffs and left several fans with a sour taste in their mouths.  But those regular season stats do not look so bad right now and the team has missed his booming shot from the point. 

Last summer, the Hurricanes reportedly offered Babchuk a million dollar contract, but the youngtser felt he deserved more and ended up bolting to the KHL.  The good news is, he still is property of the Hurricanes and they could try to bring him back again next season, or trade him in the coming offseason. 

What do you think?  Should the Canes try to bring him back?

By the way, Canes Country will not be taking a break during the Olympic "shut down".   We have some very interesting interviews coming up which we will be publishing within the next few days.  Of course, we will also be keeping up with the current news and trending topics, as always.  Stay tuned.
