Tuesday's Dump & Chase: To Russia With Love

New, comments

Taylor Aronson is playing professional hockey next year in Russia. Instead of sticking it out and improving his craft in an organization known for turning out quality defensemen, he decided to flee to where few current NHL'ers would dare to go: into the waiting arms of a bad KHL franchise. Good luck.
