The St. Louis Blues have reportedly lost another forward to the KHL.

According to RSport out of Russia, forward Sergei Andronov has signed with CSKA Moscow. Andronov spent the past two seasons in the Blues farm system with the Peoria Rivermen and Chicago wolves.

In his two AHL seasons, Andronov scored 21 goals with 24 assists over 112 games. He was recalled three times by the Blues last season but did not appear in a game. He was a third-round pick by the team in 2009. Before coming to North America, he played three seasons with CSKA.

The Blues had already lost forward Vladimir Sobotka to the KHL when he signed a deal with Avangard Omsk. Seeing Jori Lehtera bolt the KHL for the Blues hit hard for the Russian league.
