Kevin Poulin is leaving the pro hockey scene in North America to sign with the KHL’s Astana Barys.
It’s a one-year deal, per Igor Eronko of Sports-Express.
The former Islanders goalie spent last season with the Stockton Heat of the AHL, where he had a 14-11-3 record with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage in 29 games.
The 26-year-old last played in the NHL during the 2014-15 season. He made one appearance with the Isles that year.
He had a few opportunities with the Islanders, but it was usually the result of players ahead of him on the depth chart getting injured.
Poulin leaves the NHL with a career 18-25-3 record, a 3.07 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage in 50 games.
He’ll join former NHLers Vitaly Kolesnik and Henrik Karlsson in Astana Barys’ crease. Nigel Dawes, Brandon Bochenski, Martin St. Pierre, Cam Barker and Kevin Dallman are also on the roster.
