Sergei Fedorov to Play for CSKA Moscow
Once he was arguably the best player in the world. The owner of three Stanley Cup rings, he also won two Selke Tropies and the Hart Trophy during a distinguished playing career.
Now, at 43, Sergei Fedorov is set to return to the ice!
Fedorov will ‘lace ’em up’ for CSKA Moscow, where also serves as General Manager, but is no stranger to playing in the KHL. After more than a decade in Detroit, he had stints with Anaheim, Columbus and Washington before joining Metallurg Magnitogorsk in 2009.
The Russian superstar played more than 1,200 NHL games before his move ‘home’ and was a stalwart for the Russian national side for more than 20 years, winning three World Championship gold medals, two World Junior gold medals and Olympic silver and bronze medals in that time.
He was appointed General Manager of CSKA in the summer of 2012, following his retirement, but is set to face-off on Friday night, against his former club Metallurg Magnitogorsk; who are now coached by Mike Keenan.
