According to Russian newspaper Sovetsky Sport, Evgeni Nabokov's agent Sergey Isakov confirmed that Nabby signed a 4-year contract to play in the KHL. Nabokov will join SKA St. Petersburg and become a teammmate of such former NHL notables as Alexei Yashin, Sergei Zubov, Alexander Korolyuk, Andrei Zyuzin, Darius Kasparaitis, Oleg Saprykin and Sergey Brylin. The agent is quoted as saying that they've reached the agreement on the money a while ago, but had to sort out family questions. Nabokov and his family will move to Russia in August. Nabokov and the KHL is holding a press conference announcing the signing tomorrow. We'll post an update on Fear the Fin with his reaction and thoughts on making this move. Who knew that when we were watching Game 4 of the Western Conference finals between the Sharks and the Blackhawks, we were watching Nabby's last NHL game. До Встречи, Женя! Спасибо за годы воспоминаний.
