Evgeni Nabokov Off To Russia - Signs Deal With The KHL

San Jose SharksWhen San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson announced that the team would not be offering Evgeni Nabokov a new contract, one of the bantering comments was that Nabokov would sign with a team we’d face somewhere in the playoffs where he’d have a ‘career series against his old team.’ Well, that ain’t gonna happen.

From ESPN.com:

Russian goalkeeper EVGENY NABOKOV.

“Evgeni Nabokov confirmed to ESPN.com on Wednesday he signed a four-year deal with SKA St. Petersburg. He said playing in his native Russia and for a league that’s trying to make a name for itself is an exciting proposition.”

“Nabokov earned $6 million this year in San Jose. While he refused to discuss financial details of the new deal, Russian media reports pegged the total contract at around $24 million.”

Too bad Versus doesn’t carry KHL games….

  1. Nabby - Thanks for the memories. Do they have a Cup in the KHL? I bet they put Vodka in it.
