Jack Skille is on his way to Russia to continue his playing career, according to a report Thursday.
The former seventh overall pick spent last season with the Vancouver Canucks after making the club on a professional tryout last fall. He appeared in 55 games for a struggling Canucks team, scoring five goals and nine points while playing on a one-year contract.
After becoming an unrestricted free agent at the end of last season, the 30-year-old winger has since agreed to terms with Dinamo Minsk in the KHL, according to Igor Eronko of Sport-Express.
Skille has played 368 regular season games in the NHL, with stops in Chicago, Florida, Columbus, Colorado and Vancouver.
