According to Newsday, the Islanders put forward Kirill Kabanov on waivers for the purpose of releasing him.
Kabanov, a 3rd round pick by the Islanders in 2010 played 48 games for their AHL affiliate in Bridgeport between 2011/2012 and 2012/2013. About half way through last season Kabanov was loaned over seas to a Swedish team.
It is a shame that it didn't work out here for Kabanov as I really grew to like him and felt he matured a lot more then people gave him credit for. However, this is a part of the business, an unfortunate part but a part none the less.
