General manager Jarmo Kekalainen says in a statement that ''there are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture. An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values.''
The 30-year-old Bobrovsky is 18-13-1 in the final year of his contract and so far has declined to sign a long-term extension.
Coach John Tortorella declined to comment on the matter.
