Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the New York Times:
Alexei Morozov of Ak Bars Kazan, the leading scorer in the Russian Superliga, had an assist in the first period of his club’s 6-2 victory over Metallurg Magnitogorsk last Tuesday, giving him 80 points for the season. That broke the single-season record for points at the top level of Russian or Soviet domestic hockey, set in 1980-81 by Sergei Makarov of CSKA Moscow.
Later in that game, Morozov scored his 33rd goal of the season, which also led the league. But with two games left, he is well short of the single-season domestic record: Venyamin Aleksandrov had 53 for CSKA in 1962-63.
...plus a look at the Preds attendance…
Morozov’s an unrestricted free agent, so an NHL team could theoretically sign him, but they’d have to waive him per article 13.23 of the CBA.
