He recently refused an AHL assignment from the #CBJ and the sides mutually terminated his $900,000, one-year NHL contract.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) October 17, 2021

At least he tried, good for him. I think he could have stuck on a team like Arizona, but there is no place like home.

He couldn’t stick with a not very good Columbus team. Other than Buffalo, I don’t think he cracks any NHL roster.

I know KHL defensemen don't normally make a great transition to the NHL but man, that was a colossal failure.

I wouldn't call Zaitsev a colossal failure. He's overpaid, but he stuck in the league. Zaitsev also didn't have that level of offensive output as Lehtonen.

Yeah. Zaitsev isn’t a particularly good NHL defenceman, but he is good enough to play in the league. Lehtonen? Not so much.
