Failure To Thrive
Fedor Fedorov hobbles off
Everyones's favorite ex-Hartford Wolf Pack/New York Rangers forward, Fedor Fedorov, has made his way back from his Swedish hiatus and is returning to the Russian Super League to play for Dynamo Moscow this season, in a transaction that I inexplicably overlooked from about a month ago.
Still having a keen eye for these things on occasion, I did notice a couple of weeks ago that Dynamo posted a nice birthday greeting on their web site, to mark Fedor's 26th birthday on June 11th. Cute (or pretty fey, actually), but I didn't take it as meaning that he'd actually signed with Dynamo or anything.
Then, only today, I saw that Fedorov is now listed on Dynamo's roster page. Alerted, I quickly tracked down the lone Russian article (on kommersant.ru) that had the barest of mentions of Fedor's return to Moscow (and a pretty neat picture of Alexei Cherepanov, to boot-- thanks!), as well as the month-old listing on Eurohockey.net that I had failed to notice the first time through:
In any case, Fedorov enjoyed a moderate amount of success while in Sweden, posting 20 points (6g, 14a) in 18 games-- as well as a combined +5 and 106 penalty minutes-- for Malmö between the regular season and the HockeyAllsvenskan (Sweden's post-season relegation tournament). This is according to Fedor's player profile on Eurohockey.net, one of the only profile pages I've seen that actually has a sponsor-- BeKingOfPoker.com.
I probably should've had Sidearm Delivery sponsor his page when I still had the chance, but, you know, ten bucks is ten bucks.
