MOSCOW, June 6 (R-Sport) – Fedor Fedorov has signed a two-year contract with CSKA Moscow, where his older brother Sergei serves as general manager.
The younger Fedorov appeared in 38 games for SKA St. Petersburg last season, recording six goals, four assists and 42 penalty minutes.
The 6-foot-5, 254-pound left wing has 92 points in 196 career KHL games after an unremarkable eight-year career in North America.
Fedorov, a sixth-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1999 and a third-round pick by the Vancouver Canucks in 2001, split 18 NHL between the Canucks and the New York Rangers, registering two assists.
Sergei Fedorov, 43, took over as general manager at CSKA in 2012 after retiring from a three-season career with Metallurg Magnitogorsk. He won three Stanley Cups over 18 seasons in the NHL and holds the league record for most goals scored by a Russian-born player with 483.
The Fedorov brothers played together in Magnitogorsk from 2009 to 2011.
CSKA also announced the signing of former Calgary Flames forward Oleg Saprykin, who spent the last three seasons with Salavat Yulaev Ufa, winning the Gagarin Cup in 2011.
Saprykin, a 32-year-old left wing, inked a one-year deal to play with last year's Western Conference finalists.
An 11th overall pick by the Calgary Flames in 1999, Saprykin spent five seasons with the Flames before moving to the Phoenix Coyotes and Ottawa Senators. He had a career-high 36 points in 71 for Phoenix and Ottawa in 2006-07.
