Carter Ashton had a minor for holding late in the Third Period in Novgorod's elimination game 3-2 loss to CSKA. Ashton's penalty dampened a late game comeback from his club, and by going scoreless in 14:49 of ice time, he finished the playoffs without a point in 9 appearances. Ex-Blues second rounder Simon Hjalmarsson led with way with 2 goals, including a shorthanded goal, in the win. Given Ashton's fairly underwhelming season in Russia, it seems unlikely the Lightning will make any moves to retain his rights this summer.
