Fedor Fedorov Looks Toward Lokomotiv

Former Hartford Wolf Pack/New York Rangers forward Fedor Fedorov, an NHL unrestricted free agent, is in contract negotiations with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Russian Super League, according to a report that just popped up on the Sport Express web site. The report states only that "Sport Express correspondent Igor Larinu has learned that Lokomotiv is conducting negotiations with Fedor Fedorov." No other information was given.

In 50 games in the AHL last season, split between the Wolf Pack and the Syracuse Crunch, Fedorov tallied 22 points (4 goals, 18 assists) and 102 penalty minutes. Fedorov also appeared in three games for the Rangers, collecting no points to go with six penalty minutes and a highly celebrated broken nose.

It would not be a suprise if Fedorov did make a return to the RSL this season, considering that his less-than-indifferent play in recent years has pretty much insured that there's no spot waiting for him in North America. Lokomotiv has already lost at least three forwards from last year's team (Alexei Mikhnov, Andrei Taratukhin and Petr Schastlivy), indicating that the 25-year-old Fedorov could be a good fit.
