Sergei Fedorov is considering a return to competitive hockey.
Fedorov, who is currently serving as CSKA Moscow’s general manager, is said to be in top shape and mulling a return to the ice, according to CSKA head coach Vyacheslav Butsaev.
“We’ve talked to him about it [returning to ice rink],” Butsaev said in a report from the R-Sport news agency.
CSKA lost three key NHL players when Pavel Datsyuk, Mikhail Grabovski and Ilya Bryzgalov returned to North America last week after a new collective barganining agreement was agreed upon.
The 43-year-old Fedorov has been training and could fill a void for the team at the centre position.
Fedorov played with Magnitogorsk Metallurg of the KHL the last three seasons. He scored six goals and 22 points in 43 ganes last season.
During his NHL career, Fedorov won three Stanley Cups while becoming the first European to win the Hart Memorial Trophy.
