Florida Panthers prospect goaltender Kirill Gerasimyuk got the start in SK Neva St. Petersburg’s 3-1 win over fellow VHL club HC Yugra in a preseason game played on Saturday.

Ludvig Jansson saw action in Luleå HF’s 6-3 exhibition win over EV Zug of the Swiss National League on Saturday. The 19-year-old defenseman did not figure in the scoring.

Stepan Zvyagin suited up in Dinamo Minsk’s 2-1 overtime loss to Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod in a Sunday KHL preseason game. The 19-year-old forward did not figure in the scoring.

Reserve Yegor Korshkov collected an assist in Amur Khabarovsk’s 4-3 shootout loss to Kunlun Red Star on Sunday. Korshkov, who played on the first line missed did not convert on his chance in the skills competition.

Sportsnet’s Biggest unanswered question for each team in the Atlantic Division article had this on the Cats:

How are the top two defencemen feeling? Both Aaron Ekblad and Brandon Montour had shoulder surgery in the off-season. The former definitely won’t be ready to go when camp opens and it’s unclear if Montour will be at a point where he can fully jump in to on-ice activities, either.

Montour is also one of three important Cats — along with defenceman Gustav Forsling and centre Sam Reinhart — who are entering the final year of their deals before becoming UFAs. Any late-summer extensions coming after the big post-season run?
