The Nashville organization is parting ways with another AHLer, as Joonas Jarvinen has signed with the Sochi Leopards.

The Admirals lost another player to Europe today and have seen their Joonas count go from two to zero. Joonas Jarvinen has reportedly signed a contract with the Sochi Leopards, an expansion franchise in the KHL. Jarvinen played 54 games with Milwaukee this season, totaling four goals and eight assists.

The 25-year-old defenseman was a free agent signing by Nashville in 2012 and played two seasons in Milwaukee, never earning a call-up to the NHL.

With the move another spot has been freed up on the defense, a unit that will be with some new faces next season. If Jarvinen had stayed in North America, he would have been a restricted free agent. Jarvinen is the second player the Admirals have lost to Europe, as Joonas Rask signed in Finland last week.
