KHL places moratorium on signing NHL players

From the NY Times:

According to an item on the web site championat.ru (translations by Jeff Klein), the Russian KHL has announced this morning that it is officially declaring a moratorium on signing NHL players except those who are free agents and will respect existing NHL contracts. According to the statement made today, the KHL recognizes the agreement of July 10, the day the KHL, NHL, NHLPA and IIHF worked out their most recent understanding in Zurich.

This seems to be an official announcement. That said, it doesn't address the Alexander Radulov issue. Instead, the agreement only limits the ability of the KHL to sign anymore NHL players who are currently under contract.

The Radulov saga continues on...

Ballhype: hype it up!
