International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented,
Ivan is an exciting player in his prime. He's got some goal scoring flare, along with a willingness to fearlessly enter the high traffic areas. His international, KHL, and playoff experience are all huge assets for him as he explores options outside of Russia for the first time in his career.
WELCOME TO THE IHM TEAM, Ivan!
