In spite of the recent news it looks like Alexander Avtsin will spend the 2010-11 season in the KHL with Dynamo Moscow. Dynamo’s General Manager Andrei Safronov declared through the team’s official site that all the young players remain property of the new formed OHC Dynamo and all contracts are valid.
“At the end of May the KHL confirmed that all the contracts with our players are valid. Our youngsters will stay. Avtsin and Dvurechensky have a contract up to April 2011 and 2012 respectively. Anton Krysanov (Phoenix Coyotes) and Andrei Plekhanov (Columbus Blue Jackets) are among the group of players that will skate in the team’s training camp in Belarus.
We will part with Pavel Valentenko. He has a big contract and we can’t afford that. According to my informations he plans to get back to North America.”
