Kasparaitis Heads To Russia

from the Blueshirts Blog at the NY Daily News,

Stuck in the minors with virtually no chance of being recalled because of his contract and how it fits under the salary cap, Kasparaitis has agreed to play the rest of the season for SKA St. Petersburg of the Russian Elite League. He told the Daily News that he’ll join the Russian club next week.

Technically, heading to Europe will be a violation of Kasparaitis’ contract. However, as the NHL has no transfer agreement in place with the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, the Rangers would have to sue SKA St. Petersburg to prevent the move.
