Columbus’ Tyutin signs with KHL Atlant

Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin is set to join Atlant Mytishchi of the KHL, according to the team website.

News of the signing was confirmed by Atlant head coach Alexander Smirnov, who said Tyutin would be joining the club “in the nearest future.”

Tyutin, 29, has spent the last four seasons in Columbus since being acquired from the Rangers in 2008.

He signed a whopping six-year, $27 million extension with the BJs in 2011…and, in the kind of luck seemingly only experienced by Columbus players, suffered a broken hand that cost him the final 16 games of the regular season.

Prior to that injury, Tyutin had only missed four games over the last four seasons combined.

Once the deal with Atlant is finalized, Tyutin will become the fifth Blue Jacket to sign with another club during the lockout, joining goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky (St. Petersburg, KHL), defenseman Nikita Nikitin (Omsk Avangard, KHL) and forwards Artem Anisimov (Yaroslavl Lokomotiv, KHL) and Brandon Dubinsky (Alaska Aces, ECHL).

In Atlant, Tyutin will be joined by Bruins goalie Anton Khudobin and, ironically enough, the guy he was traded for back in 2008 —  Nikolai Zherdev.
