According to Russian media sources, Sergei Fedorov, of the Washington Capitals has agreed to principal to play for two seasons in the KHL for a reported $3.8 million per season. Earlier we reported that the 39-year-old Fedorov sounded set on returning to the Caps but it looks like he will be joining Metallurg Magnitogorsk.
If he does in fact leave he would be the all-time point leader for a Russian born player in NHL history with 1,179 points. According to Caps beat writer Tarik El-Bashir, Fedorov’s people are waiting for a counter offer from the team. It is also plausible that Viktor Kozlov will too go back to Russia with reports suggesting he is destined for St.Petersburg
