A bizarre power struggle continues to unfold in the KHL between Omsk management and head coach Wayne Fleming.
Fleming, who was (according to russiatoday.com) reportedly fired in-game this week, met with Omsk general manager Anatoli Bardin on Saturday and was told he hadn’t been fired even though Bardin asked Fleming not to coach the third period of game on Thursday night.
“I guess they didn’t fire me,” Fleming said. “But I told him at the time, if I’m not coaching the third period obviously I’m fired.”
Fleming says he didn’t return for the final period, changed his clothes and left the arena under the assumption his KHL days were over.

Flames General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today that the organization has accepted the resignation of assistant coach Wayne Fleming.
Fleming will assume the head coach position with Omsk of the Russian Continental Hockey League.
“We have great respect for the work Wayne did with us and appreciate his contributions,” said Sutter. “We understand that the opportunity to be the head coach of a significant team such as this represents the very best opportunity for him and his career at this time.”
