Goldobin was released by CSKA Moscow on Monday.
In 21 games this season, Goldobin registered four goals and seven helpers for CSKA. After spending the past season primarily in the AHL, Goldobin inked a two-year deal with the KHL club but it seems has worn out his welcome. It's not immediately clear if the 25-year-old winger will rejoin the Canucks organization, yet the timing would suggest he is preparing to attend training camp.
Goldobin agreed Saturday to a two-year contract with KHL club CSKA Moscow, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.
Goldobin appeared in a Nov. 27 game for the Canucks but has otherwise spent the 2019-20 campaign with Vancouver's AHL affiliate in Utica, putting up 50 points in 51 contests. With the AHL season under an indefinite suspension that isn't expected to be lifted until at least May, Goldobin will be allowed to pursue an opportunity in his home country of Russia. Goldobin, who appeared in 125 regular-season games at the NHL level between San Jose and Vancouver the past five years, said he plans to explore a move back to North America once his contract with CSKA Moscow comes to an end, per Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver.
Vancouver reassigned Goldobin to AHL Utica on Friday.
Goldobin's demotion suggests Tyler Motte (lower body) or Michael Ferland (concussion) may be ready to return soon. The 24-year-old was a healthy scratch for all but one of the five games he was with the Canucks for, and he only logged 8:37 of ice time during his lone appearance, so he can be ignored in all fantasy settings.
The Canucks recalled Goldobin from AHL Utica on Tuesday.
Goldobin has been fantastic in the minors this year, leading Utica with an impressive 20 points in 18 games. The 24-year-old winger could make his season debut with Vancouver as soon as Wednesday against the Penguins.
Goldobin was waived by the Canucks for the purpose of reassignment Monday.
Goldobin played in 63 games for the Canucks last year mainly in a third-line role, producing 27 points with nine on the man advantage. The Canucks brought in J.T. Miller this summer to man the second line, and Goldobin lost the battle for the remaining right-wing roles to Jake Virtanen and Josh Leivo. The 23-year-old will start the season with AHL Utica if he clears waivers.
Goldobin signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Canucks on Wednesday.
Goldobin was pretty productive while skating in a middle-six role with the Canucks last campaign, notching seven goals and 27 points in 63 contests. The 23-year-old Russian will have a similar role with Vancouver in 2019-20, and could threaten the 35-point mark if he's able to play a full 82-game season.
Vancouver extended Goldobin a qualifying offer Tuesday.
Goldobin had his best season yet as a pro in 2018-19, setting career highs in games played (63), assists (20) and points (27). The 2014 first-round pick should step into a middle-six role for the Canucks next campaign.
Goldobin will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's matchup with Dallas, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.
Goldobin has just four points in his past 23 appearances. This isn't his first trip to the press box this season. The coaching staff is trying to send a message, but Goldobin hasn't been able to meet expectations. He'll need to make a positive impact in more areas of the game if he's to remain a regular in the lineup.
Goldobin recorded his 20th assist on a power play in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win against the visiting Maple Leafs.
The 23-year-old has eight power-play helpers in 2018-19, and Goldobin logged an impressive 3:22 of PP ice time in Wednesday's win. Through 58 games, the young winger is averaging 15:01 of TOI per night, nearly three minutes above his career high from last season (12:20).
Goldobin scored his seventh goal of the season in Monday's 4-0 win over the Ducks.
Goldobin has played in 10 of the Canucks' 12 games in February, scoring twice and adding an assist. His production has dipped since the calendar flipped to 2019, with only three of his 26 points this season coming since Jan 1. The first-round pick from 2014 will need to regain his scoring touch to avoid being healthy scratched, especially with the Canucks trading for left wing Tanner Pearson on Monday.
Goldobin has been a healthy scratch for the past four games.
This isn't the first time Goldobin has been scratched this year, but it's definitely the lengthiest. His prior trip to the press box only lasted two games. Despite not being in the lineup, Goldobin remains fourth in team scoring with 23 points in 44 games this season.
Goldobin registered two assists in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.
The 23-year-old Russian now has 18 assists and 23 points in 2018-19, putting him on pace to finish the year with 48 points. Averaging close to three minutes of power-play time, Goldobin has seen his fair share of scoring opportunities in his second year as a member of the Canucks. He should continue finding the scoresheet in the second half of the season, provided he remains in Vancouver's power-play equation.
Goldobin had an assist during Sunday's 4-2 win over Edmonton.
The creative winger is on a bit of a roll right now, with assists in three straight games, upping his season total to 16.
Goldobin will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Wild.
This will be the first game of the season Goldobin won't hit the ice for, he played in all 29 games compiling 16 points in the process. He has gone pointless in the past three games, but had a stretch of six points in the five games prior to that. Goldobin will need to work on the other aspects of his game in order to stay in the lineup and play a meaningful role.
Goldobin chipped in a goal and a power-play assist Monday, but the Canucks lost to the Jets at home, 6-3.
Goldobin's on pace for 11 goals and 36 assists this season. He's benefited from averaging a career-high 15:18 of ice time and setting up shop on the No. 1 power play. When it comes to the Canucks, Elias Pettersson is hogging most of the attention -- understandably so, as he's up to 12 goals in his first 17 NHL games -- but Goldy getting overshadowed by his own teammate is actually a good thing if you're using him as a value play in DFS, where the most successful players think outside the box in order to cash in.
Goldobin tallied his first point in 11 games during Monday's win over Minnesota.
Goldobin had been struggling to produce, and while it was just a secondary assist, it's still nice to see him finally crack the scoresheet. He's getting plenty of ice time, including an abundance on the top power play unit, so he needs to start contributing more on a regular basis, before those minutes are handed out elsewhere.
Goldobin will look to snap out of his seven-game point drought in Wednesday's game against the Knights.
Goldobin started the year on a strong note, netting three points in the opening two games against the Flames. He showed good chemistry with rookie standout Elias Pettersson, but can't seem to get much going on his own with Pettersson on the shelf. Goldobin is known for showing flashes of brilliance, but has yet to do so with consistency. This year he's getting a bigger opportunity than he ever has before, and needs to prove that he can be a reliable source for secondary scoring.
Goldobin recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Flames.
Entering Wednesday's game, the 22-year-old Russian had only 61 NHL games to his name, tallying 19 points along the way. He played the fewest minutes of any Canucks player (7:53) and is likely to spend some time out of the lineup this season. However, if Goldobin keeps up this production, it'll be hard to take him out of the lineup.
Goldobin provided the Canucks' lone goal in Saturday's 4-1 home loss to the Coyotes.
The crafty winger, whom the Canucks selected 27th overall in the 2014 draft, seeks a full-time role with the parent club this season. Goldobin stacked eight goals and 14 points against a minus-14 rating over 38 games in 2017-18. If you squint hard enough, you can look past his team's defensive shortcomings and come to realize that Goldobin shouldn't be overlooked near the tail end of fantasy drafts.
Goldobin was reassigned to AHL Utica on Monday.
As 2017-18 wrapped up, Goldobin was able to put on a small surge in his last 10 games notching three assists and three goals, and will look to carry over the momentum for AHL Utica's run at the Calder Cup. The transaction is in no way a demotion for the 22-year-old, but a way to give him experience and playing time in a playoff environment.
