[Rumour] Pavel Datsyuk to sign with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL

Recommended Posts

Google Translation:



According to sources, 37-year-old hockey player will sign a two-year contract with the St. Petersburg CSKA after the World Cup-2016.


Earlier Datsyuk said that he could leave the NHL, despite the fact that its agreement with "Detroit" will expire only in 2017.


Pavel scored on 49 points (16 + 33) in 66 regular season matches held NHL-2015/16.


"Detroit" lost "Tampa" in the series of the first round of the playoffs, allowing Datsyuk to take part in the world championships.

Vintage all over the Russian feeds.

Maybe I shouldn't trust the Russian feeds? According to Datsyuk's agent, the rumour is false:



The agent representing Pavel Datsyuk says reports from Russian “sports portal” Sportfakt.ru — ones claiming Datsyuk will sign in the KHL after playing in the world hockey championships — are false, adding that his client still intends to meet with Red Wings management following the tournament.


The Sportfakt report claimed Datsyuk had agreed in principle to a two-year deal with SKA Saint Petersburg. It was believed the club wanted to get Datsyuk’s deal done now, amid rumblings that two of its top scorers — Vadim Shipachyov and Evgeny Dadonov — were asking to be released from their contracts, in order to secure new deals elsewhere. 


(Shipachyov, currently tearing it up at the worlds for Russia, is receiving a ton of NHL interest, per Eilliotte Friedman.) 


Earlier this month, we passed along news that Datsyuk would, as his agent said, return to Detroit following the worlds and discuss his playing future with Wings GM Ken Holland. 


Based on today’s development, that plan still appears intact.

I think we need a thread for Shipachyov. After the kind of numbers he has put up in the tournament, I expect him to be a hot commodity.

He'll be linked to many teams including Vancouver - then he'll sign in Edmonton and never be heard from again::D.
