Pavel Datsyuk Signs with CSKA Moscow says Chesnokov

Bye NHL! See you when you end the lockout!

Update news on Pavel Datsyuk today from Yahoo! Sports' Dmitry Chesnokov

Chesnokov also reports that Philadelphia's Ilya Bryzgalov will join with Datsyuk in playing for Moscow. This looks to close the loop on the issue brought up a few days ago when the Russian Press erroneously reported Datsyuk's signing with his old Superleague team (now with the KHL) AK Bars Kazan. Chesnokov was among the first to break the news that it was a false report and now is among the first to break the Moscow signing.

Hopefully (or maybe not, depending on your take), it won't take weeks for Datsyuk to get his player transfer card. As a Wings fan, I definitely don't want Datsyuk to get hurt playing in the KHL, but I also want the players sharp when the season finally does start.

CSKA's next KHL game is tomorrow night. It's unclear as to whether Datsyuk will be in the lineup, but I would doubt it. It's also important to note that CSKA Moscow is home to one other prominent Russian you may know about: one Alexander Radulov.
