Khomitski Returns To Russia

November 1, 2006


FRISCO, Tex. -- The Dallas Stars announced today that one of its prospects currently playing at Iowa of the American Hockey League, defenseman Vadim Khomitski, has returned home to Russia to tend to personal issues.

"Vadim approached us yesterday and informed us that he was returning to Russia to tend to some family issues at home," said Scott White, Iowa's Director of Hockey Operations.

Khomitski was Dallas' fourth round selection (No. 123 overall) in the 2000 Entry Draft and is in his first season with Iowa of the American Hockey League after spending the previous four seasons with CSKA Moscow in the Russian Super League.

In nine games for Iowa thus far, the 6-foot-2, 203-pound defenseman has recorded one goal and six assists for seven points along with 24 penalty minutes. He leads all Iowa defensemen in assists and points, and ranks tied for fifth overall on the club in scoring.

Khomitski, 23, skated for Team Russia in several international tournaments last year, including the 2006 World Championships, the ROSNO Cup, Four Nations Cup and the Sweden Games. In 51 games for CSKA Moscow during the 2005-06 season, the native of Voskresensk, Russia, posted 11 points (five goals and six assists) with 110 penalty minutes and a +6 rating.
