Classic case of an older Russian player returning to the KHL.
After not receiving his inflated offer of 12 million over 2 seasons, Andrei Markov will not return to Montreal or the NHL.
He spent five seasons from 1995-2000 playing in Russia, first with the Voskresensk Khimik and later with the Moscow Dynamo before joining the Canadiens. Most recently, he played 21 games with Chekhov Vityaz of the KHL during the 2012 lockout.
More to come.
