Fedor Fedorov to play in Sweden



I have yet to find a confirmation of this on any of the Russian sites (even Eurohockey.net doesn't have it listed yet), but an item has been posted on at least two Swedish sites (link here and link here), reporting that everyone's favorite former Hartford Wolf Pack/New York Rangers forward, Fedor Fedorov, has been sold to a Swedish team, the Malmö Redhawks.

Fedorov has been playing with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the Russian Super League this season. In 20 games for Lokomotiv this year, Fedorov has 8 points (4 goals, 4 assists), including a hat trick back in November, but he hasn't recorded a point in a game since December 6th.

To prove how cutting-edge internationally I am (that's a joke, son), one Swedish site is using some comments that were made on Sidearm Delivery as sort of an informal scouting report on Fedorov (the "Paris Hilton" crack is Alanah's, of Canucks and Beyond; the rest is mine):

At the very least, this gives wisp666 another jersey to buy.

Sweden's got a player ain't got no offensive moves
He ain't gonna pass the puck to his friends

An early front-runner for Comment of the Year, no doubt.

Two more Swedish links:

Fedorov nr 2 ska rädda Malmö

Fedorov ska ersätta Söderberg

(From as much as I can gather, Carl Söderberg is the player whose roster spot Fedorov is taking)

I just can't get enough of those umlats, as always.

Geez, that Paris Hilton crack was clever. I wish I could bottle my clever moments sometimes, store them up for all the slow days. :)

Well, take heart that at least this clever moment has been shipped overseas, for the benefit of a vast European audience.

Like a message in a bottle, of sorts.

Wow-- sounds like Fedor's on fire...

I gotta admit, those Redhawks jerseys look pretty hot. I'd be lost trying to track a game-worn one down, though.
