Viktor Tikhonov On His Way To The KHL

from TSN,

It appears as though Nikita Filatov has started a trend.

According to an online report Phoenix Coyotes’ prospect Viktor Tikhonov has left the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL and has returned to Russia to join CSKA Moscow of the KHL.

“My son has been sent to the KHL, he has already landed in Moscow and he’s ready to play for CSKA” - Tikhonov’s father, Vasily Tikhonov, told Sovetsky Sport. “The only problem is that the league is investigating where his rights belong to. He left the NHL playing for Severstal Cherepovets, but that was two years ago”.
