Soshnikov was recalled from AHL Toronto on Tuesday.

Per Sportsnet, Soshnikov's contract includes a clause that would allow him to play in another league overseas (most likely the KHL) if he was not on the NHL roster by Nov. 14, so Tuesday's recall was likely to avoid that from happening. The young Russian has five goals and seven assists through 14 games with the Marlies this season.
