Datsyuk signs with KHL; Kindl heading to a Czech club

DETROIT — Pavel Datsyuk will be playing in the Kontinental Hockey League this season, but it won’t be for AK Bars Kazan, which was originally reported by Russia’s Sport Express.

Datsyuk will play for CSKA Moscow of the KHL.

This is being reported by Sovietsy Sport, the national daily newspaper in Russia.

During the 2004-05 lockout, Datsyuk played the entire season for Dynamo Moscow.

Defenseman Jakub Kindl is heading to the Czech Republic to play for Pardubice.

Kindl tweeted this morning that’s where he would be playing during the NHL lockout.

Also, before rookie Damien Brunner joins the Grand Rapids Griffins he will will play for his former team in Switzerland, Zug.

The Griffins’ season starts on Oct. 12.

The owners locked the players out as of midnight on Sunday since a new collective bargaining agreement could not be reached.

Datsyuk and Kindl will both return once the lockout ends.

Many other Wings are expected to sign overseas as well.
