Evgenii Dadonov recorded two goals and added one assist in a 4-2 victory for HC Donbass versus Dinamo Riga.

He played in 15 games with the Florida Panthers in 2011-12, but spent the majority of his time in the minors where he skated in 55 contests between San Antonio and Charlotte. Dadonov signed on with the KHL this past summer, so he's unlikely to return even when the lockout is over.

The Carolina Hurricanes received Evgenii Dadonov and A.J. Jenks from the Florida Panthers on Wednesday in exchange for Jonathan Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom.

The 22-year-old Dadonov has the most NHL experience of the players involved in the deal. In 55 games with the Panthers, he has registered 10 goals and 10 assists. After a poor showing at training camp, he started the 2011-12 campaign in the minors but he does have some offensive talent. Dadonov should get an opportunity with the Hurricanes before the end of the year and don't be shocked if he plays alongside Eric Staal when he is called up.

Sat, Nov 12, 2011 06:30:00 PM

Evgeny Dadonov was sent to the AHL because he wasn't going to get any playing time with the Panthers in the near future, according to Panthers coach Kevin Dineen.

"I look at Dads as a very effective player, he plays a lot of different roles in the lineup, but right now he wasn’t in the lineup; he can play on a skill line, a checking line but he needs to play," Dineen said. "I didn’t forsee him getting any playing time here this weekend and felt he should get to San Antonio, play some games. That’s what we need him to do. He didn’t have a great training camp, but we still respect his skill and talent that he has, and he needs to play some games early and help us as the season progresses." Dadonov should get another stint with the Florida Panthers before the end of the 2011-12 campaign.

Evgeny Dadonov has been assigned to AHL San Antonio.

He watched Florida's first two games of the season as a healthy scratch, so it will be better for him to get into some game action in the minors. Dadonov has offensive potential and he should be back in the NHL this year if injuries occur.

Evgeny Dadonov will not dress for Saturday's game against the Islanders.

This is a disappointment for Dadonov, who struggled to make the team out of training camp. The young winger looked competent towards the end of last season so we think he'll get an opportunity to play regularly later this season.

Evgeny Dadonov will remain on Florida's roster for the opening of the 2011-12 season.

However, he may sit as a healthy scratch in Saturday night's first contest against the New York Islanders. Coach Kevin Dineen wants to see more consistency in the 22-year-old's game, but he does view him as a versatile player.

Evgeni Dadonov is believed to be competing with Tim Kennedy for Florida's final spot at forward.

Kennedy was sporting a cut forehead after getting hit from behind by Dallas' Ryan Garbutt in exhibition action on Tuesday. Dadonov can probably bring more offense to the table, but it will be an interesting choice for the organization.

Evgeny Dadonov had two assists however Florida fell 4-2 to the Lightning.

Dadonov had a good game as he picked up two assists and a plus-two rating. Jason Garrison and Mike Santorelli both scored in the loss. Santorelli reached 20 goals in the season, a nice milestone for him. Florida finishes off their season Saturday against Washington.

The Florida Panthers will have a close eye on Evgeni Dadonov during their last three games of 2010-11.

"We're looking for top-six forwards that can do some things in the organization. The reality is you're not going to go out and sign four or five of those guys, they're just not out there," coach Pete DeBoer said. "[Dadonov] is a guy that has that type of potential, I think. But he's got to continue to develop." He has displayed flashes of that potential in the 33 games he has played in this season, with eight goals and 15 points over that span.
