Sergei Fedorov: “We would like to sign a contract with Orlov”


The Kontinental Hockey League’s CSKA hockey club would like to sign a contract with the Russian national team defender Dmitry Orlov.

In a story posted by, former Washington Capital player and current General Manager of the KHL’s CSKA hockey club, Sergei Fedorov, stated that the team would like to sign Orlov.  CSKA obtained the KHL rights to Orlov three years ago in a trade with Metallurg Novokuznetsk.


However, Fedorov would go on to say in the interview that “Dmitry (has) other plans, he wants to play in the NHL, and rightly so, it tends toward this goal. Our club, owning the rights to Orlov, is always ready to engage in dialogue with the player.”

Having the KHL rights to Orlov, it’s not surprising that CSKA is making a push, however meager the push may be.
