Wings general manager Ken Holland said today that the club will head to salary arbitration with forward Jiri Hudler on July 30 in Toronto. Hudler’s agent, Petr Svoboda, told Holland the 25-year-old left wing intends on playing in Russia next season.
“They have no intention of negotiating a settlement, they want the case heard before an arbitrator,’’ Holland said.
The NHL apparently will not be able to prevent Hudler from playing for Moscow Dynamo.
Hudler has made it clear he wants to play in the KHL, the Wings are not really fighting his decision so we can expect the end result, Hudler in the KHL and the Wings will add another forward by signing someone or making a trade.
