A big defender that can contribute offensively but seems content on staying in Russia for the foreseeable future.

March 2020 – Edmonton still holds Paigin’s rights but his eye-opening 2015-2016 campaign is a thing of the past and he has not come close to duplicating the 0.73 points per game from that season. After five pointless games in the AHL in 2016-2017 and the seven more the following season, Paigin quickly decided to leave North America and go back to Russia. His willingness to leave North America seven games into the 2017-2018 season does not exactly strike confidence in him potentially coming back in the future. The 25-year-old has been a pretty steady defender in the KHL and that is not likely to change anytime soon. Jameson Ewasiuk
