NHL, KHL agree to player movement regulations
The KHL and NHL recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding that regulates player transitions between the two bodies.
The National Hockey League (NHL) and Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) announced signing a Memorandum of Understanding that regulates player transitions between the two leagues. The agreement respects the professional contracts of players from both leagues and obliges both sides to complete a range of procedures to avoid conflicts in the process of players moving from one league to the other.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly and KHL President Alexander Medvedev signed the memorandum, which is effective for one year until June 30, 2012.

"We believe that the achievement of a consensus on the status of hockey players in both leagues will reflect positively on the broader development of the sport of hockey," KHL president Alexander Medvedev said in a statement.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
