NHL Lockout Day 16

Hey there, time traveller!

YAKUPOV RELEASED

Did Hockey Canada and/or the OHL cave?

It seems that way, as Nail Yakupov, the first-overall pick of the 2012 draft and assigned by the Edmonton Oilers to the OHL's Sarnia Sting, has been cleared to resume playing in the KHL. Yakupov went to Russia before he had his release and could be in Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk's lineup by Monday. The team was fined by the IIHF for having the youngster in its lineup without proper clearance. He was believed to have agreed to play for the Sting through to the end of 2012-13 if he wasn't in the NHL. Hockey Canada released the following statement, so you may judge yourself what happened: "Nail Yakupov has been released to play in the KHL. Hockey Canada and the Russian Ice Hockey Federation have announced that the OHL has determined that Yakupov had no independent legal advice when, at the age of 17 years old, he signed his contract with Sarnia. His release goes into effect immediately."

HOCKEY NIGHT IN KHL

Saturday's action saw Winnipegger Nigel Dawes score the only goal for Barys in a 5-1 loss to Metallurg NK. One of Dawes' teammates is Jets centre Nik Antropov.

One-time Manitoba Moose forward Eric Christensen scored for Prague Lev in a 5-2 loss to Traktor Chelyabinsk. Traktor had a goal from former Nashville and Montreal forward Andrei Kostitsyn. Among the Traktor skaters is 36-year-old D Deron Quint, a three-year veteran of the team who broke into the NHL with the Jets in 1995.

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has joined CKSA Moscow but played just one game and lost it. CKSA has a hot goalie at present, Rastislva Stana, who has two shutouts in eight starts.

Among other KHL notes, the league's leading goal scorer as of Saturday was one-time Moose Alexander Korolyuk, who has seven for Vityaz Chekhov, while sharing the lead for goals among defencemen is one-time Jets prospect Arturs Kulda with six.

NASH BASHED

New York Rangers forward Rick Nash was pulled from a game in the Swiss League on Friday with a shoulder injury. It's said not to be serious, that the sniper didn't return to Davos's game for precautionary reasons. It's a sharp reminder for players why they have been urged in the strongest possible terms to get insurance for their NHL contracts before they play anywhere else during the lockout.

ON THE MOVE

Locked-out NHL player movement, confirmed or rumoured:

Philadelphia's Claude Giroux in talks with Avangard Omsk (KHL) but not signed

No other signings reported on Saturday.
