Defenseman Roman Derlyuk has rejoined KHL team Dynamo Moscow after a season in the Florida Panthers organization with the AHL team San Antonio Rampage, Dynamo said Monday.
The Russian defenseman has signed a two-year deal with Dynamo after his one-year entry-level contract with the Panthers expired.
“Defenseman Roman Derlyuk has signed a two-year contract with Dynamo,” the KHL team said in a website statement.
Prior to joining the Panthers organization last year, Derlyuk spent a total of five years with the Dynamo and MVD teams, which merged to form the current Dynamo KHL team in 2010.
Florida drafted Derlyuk as a sixth-round pick, and 164th overall, in the 2005 NHL entry draft.
While in San Antonio, he played 69 AHL games, scoring two goals and registering nine assists.
In 123 KHL games for Dynamo and MVD, St. Petersburg-born Derlyuk has notched up 10 goals and 25 assists.
Dynamo won the Gagarin Cup in April with a 4-3 series victory over Avangard Omsk, becoming the first team from the Western Conference to win the KHL's highest honor.
