The two Russians who were released by the Hartford Wolf Pack on Wednesday have, as expected, signed with KHL teams.

Maxim Kondratiev, who was released after failing in his bid to earn an NHL contract with the New York Rangers, has signed a two-year deal with CSKA Moscow.  He’ll join the team on Tuesday and is expected to play in their next game, against AK Bars, on Friday.

Sergei Demagin, who signed an AHL contract with the Wolf Pack earlier this summer, will return to his former team, Dinamo Minsk.  Demagin, who played parts of the past four seasons with Dinamo, was expected to join the team on Saturday, but did not play in in their 3-0 loss to SKA St. Petersburg.  Dinamo Minsk have lost six games in a row and are currently in last place in the KHL.

    I’m a bit confused how demagin can bolt from an AHL contract without any fuss?

    Amos – I suspect it may have been a mutual decision, but I have nothing to back that up. All the article says is that Dinamo was able to “reach an agreement” with the team for his return.
