Sergei Fedorov has reportedly decided to end his retirement and play in the KHL.
Fedorov has been serving as the general manager of CSKA Moscow. The 43-year-old had six goals and 22 points in 43 KHL games in 2011-12. Assuming this report is true, it will be fun to see how Fedorov's comeback goes. However, there's little chance that he'll end up back in the NHL and even less that he'll have any fantasy value if he does. Wed, Oct 9, 2013 02:14:00 PM

Sergei Fedorov is reportedly considering a return to the ice as a player.

He is currently working as CSKA Moscow's general manager, but according to head coach Vyacheslav Butsaev Fedorov he is thinking about lacing up the skates again. CSKA lost Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk and Toronto's Mikhail Grabovski when the lockout was settled, so he would help fill some holes at center if he decides to play. In 43 contests with Magnitogorsk Metallurg last season, Fedorov had six goals and 16 assists.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland hopes fans cheer for Sergei Fedorov when he plays in the Winter Classic alumni game.

Fedorov has been a target of boos since he rejected a five-year, $50 million offer in 2003 and signed with the Ducks."I think Sergei has been one of the great Red Wings in the last 20 or 30 years," Holland said. "Maybe in the history of the Red Wings. He was a tremendous player, a tremendous talent. My feeling is this alumni game is to honor the history, and Sergei has been a big part of our history." Fedorov helped the Wings win the Stanley Cup in 1997, 1998 and 2002.

Four members of Detroit's "Russian Five" are currently on the Winter Classic alumni game roster.

Sergei Fedorov, Igor Larionov, Viacheslav Fetisov have all agreed to play for Detroit. Vladimir Konstantinov's hockey career ended in 1997 because of injuries sustained during a limousine accident, but he will be in attendance. Vyacheslav Kozlov, who is the only member of the "Russian Five" not already on the roster, might participate in the game, but he wants to see what the KHL schedule is like first.

Sergei Fedorov expects to play Sunday after missing Friday's practice with an undisclosed injury.

Fedorov has looked good on Russia's third line at the games with his calming influence and solid defensive play. That skill set will be needed to slow down the Czech's, whose veteran lineup has been impressive thus far.

Sergei Fedorov has won a default judgment against former financial adviser Joseph Zada.

Fedorov took Zada to court in late July for reportedly cheating him out of $43 million and was awarded $60 million (due to interests) on Monday. Zada was accused of embezzlement, fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud by the former NHLer. "Fedorov is a Russian-born individual who has limited knowledge of, and experience in, investment, legal and financial matters," according to the suit. "Zada is an individual who by deceit and fraud worked his way into the confidence of Fedorov and has defrauded him of tens of millions of dollars."

Sergei Fedorov is suing his old financial adviser Joseph Zada for embezzlement.

Fedorov claims Zada cheated him out of $43 million, but Zada says the money was a loan and not an investment and he intended to pay him back. He said he agreed to pay Fedorov $60 million earlier this year to settle the dispute, but the money was never given according to Fedorov's camp.

Sergei Fedorov has signed with the Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL.

There was a report on Thursday that the deal was only 90% done, but now it looks like Fedorov is definitely going to Russia. Fedorov scored 483 goals and 1,179 points in 1,248 NHL games with the Detroit Red Wings, Anaheim Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets, and Washington Capitals. Fedorov will turn 40 in December and it's very possible that this deal will mark the end of his NHL career.

Sergei Fedorov's deal with a Russian KHL team is only 90% done, according to the Washington Post.

Metallurg Magnitogorsk announced on their website that Fedorov signed a two-year deal worth $3.8 million per season. Who knows what that means, but Fedorov returning to the motherland isn't official just yet.

Multiple reports out of Russia have Sergei Fedorov signing with KHL team Metallurg Magnitogorsk.

Fedorov has reportedly signed a two-year deal with the Russian club, who posted the news on their official team website and where Sergei's younger brother, Evgeny played last season. This will be big loss for Washington as Fedorov, although not a great offensive player like years past, was a big leader and great influence on younger Russian Alexander Ovechkin. The Capitals will also miss his defensive awareness - he was always among the best defensive forwards in the game, even this past season.

Sergei Fedorov is continuing to talk with the Capitals about a deal for next season.

Fedorov confirmed that he didn't sign a two year deal with a Russian KHL team, but didn't deny that talks were held. The Caps do want to re-sign the veteran, but not for the $4 million he earned last year. If he's willing to come down a bit, that may secure his future in DC.

Sergei Fedorov is negotiating with both the Capitals and Russian KHL teams.

The veteran is exploring all his options at the moment. He would likely have to take a pay cut from the $4 million he earned last year in order to remain in Washington, but a KHL team may be willing to offer more money and more years. Plus Fedorov may want to play in his home country. Stay tuned.

Sergei Fedorov hasn't signed a deal with a Russian team, according to the Washington Post.

Fedorov's agent, Pat Brisson, said he is still discussing a contract with the Capitals for next season. The agent didn't completely deny the rumors out of Russia that Metallurg Magnitorosk is interested in his client's services, but maintains that nothing has been signed. Tune in shortly for more of this developing soap opera.

Sergei Fedorov is set to sign with Metallurg Magnitorosk of the Kontinental Hockey League, according to Russian reports.

He will reportedly sign a two year deal worth $3.8 million annually, much more than he'd likely sign for if he remained in Washington next season. There may be some truth to this as one of his brothers, Evgeny, plays for Metallurg while his other brother, Fedor, plays for another KHL team. If this is true, this will be a big blow to the Capitals. While he may not have the offense he once did, he remained the smartest player on the team, as well as it's best defensive forward, allowing for Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin to take defensive liberties to concentrate on offense. Stay tuned.

Sergei Fedorov would like to re-sign with the Washington Capitals.

Fedorov, 39, has no intention of retiring following the completion of his 18th NHL season. "I cannot imagine myself retired; I don't know why," Fedorov said. "I still have got some legs left and I'm still enjoying the game and I'm certainly enjoying this group of young and very talented players. I didn't think about retiring. By saying that, I would like to continue to play. With the young legs around me, it's really helpful." Fedorov is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but it sounds like the Capitals will probably re-sign him. At this point he doesn't have much fantasy value, but he can still play an important role in shaping the Capitals 2009-10 season.
