After one year in the Bruins' organization, Josh Hennessy is reportedly departing North America once again.
Finnish writer Matias Strozyk tweeted earlier today that the Rockland, Mass., native has signed a one-year deal with Vityaz Chekov of the KHL.
Hennessy, 27, appeared in three games for Boston in 2011-12 after signing a one-year deal with the team last summer. He did not pick up a point, had two penalty minutes and was plus-1 during his stint with the big club.
A second-round pick of the Sharks back in 2003, Hennessy put up big numbers for the Senators' farm team in Binghamton but could never nail down a spot in Ottawa's lineup. He left to go play for Lugano in the Swiss-A league in 2010-11 before returning to North America.
In 2011-12, he ranked second on the P-Bruins in both goals (19) and points (41), appearing in 69 games for the club.
Hennessy made $200,000 at the AHL level and $600,000 at the NHL level during his one-year deal with Boston. The details of his one-year contract with Vityaz Chekov are unknown.
Vityaz Chekov was the worst team in the KHL last season, as they finished 2011-12 with 44 points in 54 games.
