ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Maxim Kondratiev refused assignment to the Anaheim Ducks' AHL affiliate in Portland and was suspended Tuesday by the minor league team.

The 24-year-old defenseman, who remains the property of the Ducks, has returned to Russia and intends to play for St. Petersburg of the Russian Superleague. He was with Lada Togliatti in that league last season.

Kondratiev made his debut for the Ducks on Oct. 6 and played in four games overall. He has no points, and was a healthy scratch for Anaheim's last four games.

The Ducks acquired him from the New York Rangers on Jan. 8, 2006, for Petr Sykora and a fourth-round draft choice.
