Royals sign forward Nikita Kashirsky

READING, Pa. - The Reading Royals have signed forward Nikita Kashirsky. The Moscow native return to Reading after winning the Kelly Cup with the team last season.

Kashirsky played sixty-three games for the Royals last season—forty-one in the regular season and all twenty-two it took for the Reading to capture the Kelly Cup. That marked the second ECHL championship for Kashirsky, who was a member of the 2009 Kelly Cup champion South Carolina Stingrays.

Kashirsky proceeded to record forty-four points (17g-27) (sixth on the team) in just 41 regular season games—a 1.07 points per game average. Kashirsky's seventeen regular season goals came on just 92 shots—an 18.5% scoring ratio, which led the team for any player scoring ten or more goals.

Kashirsky played all twenty-two post-season games for the Royals, racking up twenty-points (5g-15a), which was third best on the team in playoffs. His fifteen assists tied for the league lead in that category. Kashirsky, who generated 60 shots on goal in the playoffs (second most on the team), played to a plus twelve (+12) in the post-season, which was fourth best in the league.
