Andrei Markov’s Agent Confident He Will Play In The NHL This Season

from NHL.com,

Andrei Markov will play in the NHL this season, according to his agent.

"I'm very confident there will be a deal for him, and he'll play somewhere this year," Allan Walsh said during the Jonathan Drouin Golf Tournament at Le Club Laval-sur-le-Lac in Laval, Quebec on Thursday.

Markov hired Walsh as his agent Wednesday.

"Things were busy yesterday," Walsh said. "Numerous teams called. They're asking questions about his conditioning, forwarded teams a bunch of videos of him training. There are people who have actually been out to see him skate in Florida and train."

The 40-year-old defenseman played the past two seasons for Kazan in the Kontinental Hockey League. He had 14 points (two goals, 12 assists) in 49 games last season.

Haha, judging by the timing to complain about Ken Holland’s contract renewal.

Markov is a month younger than I am, so more power to him if he can pull it off.
