Perezhogin goes home
Alexander Perezhogin is headed back to Russia.
There were reports last week Perezhogin had signed with Avangard Omsk, but agent Don Meehan said last night the forward has signed a contract with Salavat Yulayev Ufa, another Russian Super League team.
Meehan said that Perezhogin will net $1.7 million U.S.
Still, that's big money to get from the Russian league, and with no transfer agreement in place between the two sides, I expect the fight for players to continue between the North American and Russian pro leagues.
