Ullstrom to Russia

Jonkoping to Yaroslavl: After three years over here, David Ullstrom today signed with HK Lokomotiv in the KHL. He’d have had to clear waivers to return to Bridgeport, but he departs with spots in the Sound Tigers’ top 10 in goals, PPGs and game-winners (where, for a single season, his seven in 40 games in 2011-12 place him second behind Jeff Hamilton’s league-record 15 from 2003-04).

If I count correctly, that leaves 34 players under contract for next year (including Reinhart) plus seven restricted free agents, not counting Ullstrom.
