Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman on Tuesday signed to play with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League for the duration of the work stoppage.

The second pick of the 2009 NHL Draft, Hedman had a career-best five goals in 61 games last season, and his 23 points were second among the team's blueliners.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
