According to a report out of Russia (non-Russian-speakers: Hit the translate button on your browser), Bruins 2011 second-round pick Alexander Khokhlachev will sign with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL next month.

Khokhlachev, who is still 22 and had 70 points (23 goals, 47 assists) in 63 games for Providence last season, vented his frustrations with the Bruins organization during training camp prior to this season. The Russian center has played in just nine NHL games, registering no points. The B's will retain his rights until he's 27 in the event that Khokhlachev returns to the NHL. Khokhlachev is the second player to leave the Bruins' organization for the KHL this offseason, as center Joonas Kemppainen signed with Sibiu Novosibirsk earlier this month.
