While the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues, many hockey players refuse to return to Russia to join their KHL team. This is the case of former CH prospect Daniel Audette.

The 5th round pick (147th overall) of the Montreal Canadiens in 2014 refused to report to his KHL team, the Podolsk of Vityaz.


According to journalist Alexei Shevchenko of Sportexpress, Audette made this decision under the influence of his father, who preferred not to see him go to Russia. An agreement was finally reached between him and the team that held his rights and the contract was terminated.


The 26-year-old played 45 games with Podolsk of Vityaz last season, accumulating 39 points, including 17 goals. He also joined Orebro HK in the SHL when the conflict between Russia and Ukraine broke out. In Sweden, he accumulated 6 points in 11 games.

Audette played 206 games in the Habs organization, with the St. John's Icecaps and the Laval Rocket. He will have accumulated 182 points during his time in the CH organization before adding 37 more in 58 games with the Springfield Thunderbirds in the 2019-2020 season, his last in the AHL and in North America.
