One of the Flyers' top prospects has been suspended for months.
Fedotov Suspended By The IIHF
It was recently announced that Ivan Fedotov of the Philadelphia Flyers had a valid contract.
With the IIHF deeming Fedotov had a valid contract, some suspensions will come into effect with some foul play from Fedotov and CSKA.
Fedotov will face the following suspension:
- A four (4) month suspension on playing in official national and international games during playing periods. The suspension shall take effect on 1 September 2023 (first CSKA regular season game) and conclude on 31 December 2023.
While it is not any NHL games, it is still a long-term suspension that will prevent Fedotov from representing Russia on the international stage. He previously represented Russia at the 2021 Winter Olympics earning a Silver Medal.
Fedotov was originally selected by the Flyers in the 7th round of the 2015 draft and has developed into a star goaltender in Russia.
