Sergei Fedorov, the 43-year-old unrestricted free agent, was signed to a one-year, two-way contract with CSKA Moscow of Russia's Kontinental Hockey League by Sergei Fedorov, the 43-year-old general manager, according to Igor Eronko of Sports.ru on Thursday morning.
Reports surfaced on Wednesday that Fedorov was going to return to professional hockey to play for CSKA while the club deals with injury issues. Fedorov skated for approximately 90 minutes and took repetitions at forward and defense, according to Pavel Lysenkov of Sovietsky Sport.
Early reports indicated that Fedorov would dress for the team's game against Metallurg Magnitogorsk on Friday night. However, that hasn't been determined at this time:
