Former Hart Trophy winner and current CSKA Moscow GM Sergei Fedorov is reportedly coming out of retirement to join his club as a player, according to Russian news outlet SovSport.
Fedorov, 43, last played for KHL Metallurg during the 2011-12 campaign, after which he transitioned to his current role as an executive.
CSKA — a team that employs ex-NHLers Alex Radulov, Brandon Reid, Sergei Shirokov, Viktor Kozlov and Alexei Morozov — is struggling with a number of injuries to key players, according to Andrey Osadchenko of The Hockey News.
It’s believed Fedorov will make his playing debut on Friday, against his old Metallurg club.
