Denis Shvidki (Florida Panthers) signed a contract today with Super League’s (Russia 1) Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. The contract is for the duration of one year, and likely includes a NHL clause that will allow the young forward to return to North America once the NHL season resumes. This specific clause will most likely be in the contract, because while Shvidki’s three year rookie contract with Florida expired this summer, the Panthers have tendered the talented winger a qualifying offer of $1.239 million per year. During his young professional career, Shvidki has battled some injuries a couple of seasons ago, including a serious concussion and a leg injury. However, he made his return to the NHL during the spring of 2003, and has remained injury free since then, delivering a solid, 54 point 2003-04 season in the AHL with the San Antonio Rampage.
