Saturday's KHL schedule features four games involving NHL players, including Evgeni Malkin and Ilya Kovalchuk

There is still no end in sight for the NHL lockout, so the attention of hockey fans is again in Europe where several NHL players make their temporary homes in the KHL.

Saturday's six-game schedule features four matchups that involve NHL players. Highlights include an early tilt involving Metallurg Magnitogorsk, temporary home of Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Sergei Gonchar of the Ottawa Senators, as well as a nightcap between HC Lev Praha and SKA St. Petersburg, featuring five NHL players including Ilya Kovalchuk of the New Jersey Devils.
