Fedorov Gone to Russia

The Capitals won't be getting the chance to bring Sergei Fedorov back into the fold this summer, as he has agreed on a 2-year deal in Russia with Magnitogorsk. This report comes over a month before he hits the open market as a UFA in the off-season.

Fedorov, 39, has had himself a whale of a career in the NHL, has now decided it is time to spend his remaining playing years at home, signing on to the same team where his two younger brothers are playing in Russia.

Fedorov's career numbers are certainly Hall of Fame worthy, scorng 483 goals and 696 assists in 1,248 career regular season games, having a career high of 120 points in the 1993-'94 season in Detroit. That was also the same season that he scored 56 goals, the only time he broke the 50-goal barrier.

Unfortunately, his point production has decreased over the years and he hadn't eclipsed the 50-point mark after the lockout.
