Continental Hockey League (KHL)
- One of Russia’s top centers, Sergei Zinovjev (Boston Bruins)
finally has a new team. The veteran forward, who finished the season with HC Dynamo after being traded there from HC Kazan was rumored to be going to St. Petersburg’s SKA. Those rumors are proven to have been unfounded, as Zinovjev is now one of the newest high profile acquisitions of the Ufa based club. The club has also acquired Washington Capitals center Viktor Kozlov (Washington Capitals)
, more than compensating for the off-season losses of Alexei Tereschenko (Dallas Stars)
and several other forwards. While undoubtedly a great talent, it remains to be seen how long Zinovjev will remain with his new club, as the forward has had a history of difficult relationships with his employers.
