Vorobyov has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with KHL club Salavat Yulaev Ufa, per Gorobzor.ru. According to Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the club will retain the center's rights by offering him a qualifying offer. Vorobyev spent the bulk of the year with AHL Lehigh Valley, where he registered 12 goals and 16 helpers in 45 appearances. With the Flyers, the Russian saw action in 20 games, picking up one goal, two helpers and 15 shots while averaging 10:26 of ice time.
Philadelphia reassigned Vorobyov to AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday. The Flyers recalled David Kase in a corresponding move, so Vorobyov will remain in the minors for the foreseeable future. He'll likely get another shot with the big club later this season, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.
Vorobyev posted an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Kings. Vorobyev had the lone helper on Justin Braun's second-period tally. The Russian center is up to three points and 13 shots on goal in 17 contests this year. He plays on the fourth line -- fantasy owners likely won't need to dig as deep as Vorobyev to fill out their rosters.
Vorobyov has a goal on one shot with an even rating in the last three games. The 22-year-old has played in a lot of games since being promoted back to the NHL early in December. He's matched last season's total of one goal and two points in 14 games during 2019-20. Vorobyov is mostly trending in the right direction, but he doesn't receive enough playing time or get enough shots on net to be considered even a deep fantasy league option.
The Flyers recalled Vorobyov from AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Michael Raffl is expected to be sidelined for four weeks with a fractured finger, so Vorobyov could be in for an extended stay with the big club. The 22-year-old has racked up five goals and 14 points in 19 games with Lehigh Valley this season.
