Nabokov No Longer In The KHL

from TSN,

Goalie Evgeni Nabokov has been released from his contract with SKA St. Petersburg of the Russian KHL due to what the team is calling “family circumstances”.

The announcement was made on the SKA St. Petersburg website on Monday.

The former San Jose Sharks netminder was 8-8-5 in 22 games this season, with a save percentage of .888 and a 3.02 GAA. He played in the team’s most recent game on Friday, and was pulled after giving up a pair of goals against Nizhny Novgorod during a 5-2 loss.

So does this open the possibility for him to come back to the NHL this season?  There is a free agent cut off date isn’t there… thought it was in Dec…

Though with those numbers, perhaps not too many interested anyway wink

I believe that since he played in another professional league that he would have to clear waivers if signed.
