Andrei Markov is the latest Russian player to head to the KHL, as several reports indicate that the Montreal Canadiens defenceman has signed a lockout contract with Vityaz Chekhov.
Markov, 33, missed 133 regular season games and all of the 2011 playoffs over the last two seasons with injuries to his right knee. He played 13 games last season, tallying three assists.
The Canadiens signed Markov to a three-year $17.25 million contract two summers ago.
The six-foot, 209-pound defenceman has registered 369 points (81 goals, 288 assists) in 636 regular season games. He also has 18 points (three goals, 15 assists) in 49 career playoff games.

man all these signings should be in one specific thread instead of making a new thread everytime a player signs somewhere. Mods should take that into consideration.

Montreal must be hating this. You know that markov has 50 games tops per year. Now he'll burn most of those overseas.

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."
