Andrei Loktionov Wikipedia
Andrei Vyacheslavovich Loktionov (Russian: Андре́й Вячесла́вович Локтио́нов; born 30 May 1990) is a Russian professional ice hockey player currently playing on a try-out basis with the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). Drafted by the Kings in the fifth round, 128th overall, at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Loktionov has also previously played in the National Hockey League (NHL) within the New Jersey Devils organization and the Carolina Hurricanes.
A product of the HC Khimik hockey school in Voskresensk, Loktionov then skated for Spartak Moscow's system before signing with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. He is also a longtime member of the 1990-born Team Russia. He was drafted 123rd overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings.
During the 2010–11 season, Loktionov scored his first career NHL goal on 19 October 2010, against Justin Peters of the Carolina Hurricanes. He was with the Kings during their 2012 Stanley Cup championship season, but did not have his name engraved on the Stanley Cup as he only played 39 regular season games (less than half of the season) with the team.
On 6 February 2013, Loktionov was acquired by the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He was then assigned to the Devils' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Albany Devils.
On 5 March 2014, Loktionov was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, along with a 2017 conditional third-round draft pick, in exchange for winger Tuomo Ruutu. At the end of the season, the Hurricanes opted not to provide Loktionov with a qualifying offer and as a result, he became an unrestricted free agent on 1 July 2014.
Without a club midway into the 2014–15 season, Loktionov signed for the remainder of the season to return to Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in the KHL on 28 November 2014.
After three seasons in the KHL with Lokomotiv, Loktionov as a free agent following the 2016–17 season, opted for another attempt at the NHL in accepting a professional try-out to attend his original draft club, the Los Angeles Kings training camp on July 14, 2017.Won gold with Team Russia in the 2007 IIHF World U18 Championships
