Report says Sushinsky to stay in Russia

According to a story that appeared this afternoon in Sport Express, Maxim Sushinsky has agreed to a deal with SKA St. Petersburg after nearly two months' of negotiations, and will be signing a contract with the Russian Super League team within the next few days.

SKA team president Boris Vinokur had made it a priority to sign Sushinsky away from Dynamo Moscow at the start of the current off-season (see: SKA Vows To Sign Sushinsky, May 23 '06). Sushinsky, a St. Petersburg native and a former captain of Team Russia, had previously announced an interest in returning to the NHL next season, possibly with the New York Rangers or his former team, the Minnesota Wild.

Sushinski: Been there, done that. He's basically the Russian Pavel Patera.

Well, I needed to fill my quota of "Some Russian guy might sign with the NHL, or maybe not" stories for the week, anyway.
