Read: Pavel Valentenko Is A Good Family Man

Last week it was announced that the Rangers prospect Pavel Valentenko will return to North America for this coming season.

According to Dan David, who profiles Valentenko in the Rangers 20 Prospects In 20 Days Series, Valentenko only left for Russia because he needed to take care of his family and the contract he could get in the KHL could do that.

…Family comes first, and hopefully this gets rid of the stigma that comes with players who leave for the KHL.

Valentenko will be at the Rangers prospect camp in July and then at training camp which starts on September 17th.
