Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said this morning that he hasn’t yet received the arbiter’s decision, but made it clear that this ship has sailed. Hudler is playing in Russia next season.

“The story’s over. He’s going to play in Russia,’’ Holland said. “We’re waiting on the terms (of the salary arbitration case) he has to (honor) if and when he returns to the NHL.’‘

Detroit Red Wings forward Jiri Hudler was awarded a two-year deal worth over US$5 million in arbitration on Friday, a source told Sportsnet.
