Alex Ovechkin turns 27 today. Will he celebrate by signing with Dynamo Moscow? Will he team up with former Caps teammate Sergei Gonchar?
On Day One of the NHL lockout, Evgeni Malkin and Sergei Gonchar signed contracts to play in the KHL. Others are expected to follow.
In a statement, the NHL says it is committed to reaching a "fairer" deal than the one it agreed to seven years ago.
The NHL lockout became official at midnight when the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement with its players expired.
