As first written about as a rumor last night, multiple sources are saying that Nikolai Zherdev is about to sign with Atlant of the KHL.
Puck Daddy is reporting directly that Atlant will make an announcement of the signing tomorrow.
With Atlant playing away, Zherdev was visiting Atlant’s offices to discuss the terms of the contract. The terms and the length of the deal are not yet known.
Zherdev scored 58 points for the Rangers last season. He was awarded $3.9 million in arbitration and the Rangers walked away. Over the weekend, reports came out that Zherdev asked the Rangers to come back at his qualifying offer of 3.25 million.
…Best of luck to Z over in Russia. Maybe he can find his game their and be a stat.
