The 28 years old would be free as his Senators just lost the first round NHL playoffs series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Anton Volchenkov: "Now I'm not planning of doing the trip to Germany to play on the World Championship. I need some rehabilitation. There are some problems with my health. I will discuss about this with National Team's head coach Vyacheslav Bykov."
