Fedorov Involved in Controversy



One of the big stories of the summer was about Ivan Fedotov, who signed a contract in both the NHL and the KHL. The IIHF ruled that he was suspended until December and CSKA is banned from making international transfers for a year.

"An interesting story is developing. Ivan Fedotov, who has a valid contract with the NHL Flyers, is, as we speak, playing in CSKA Moscow's season opener. This means that, to my knowledge, it is the first time that an IIHF-affiliated federation, league, and club have defied an IIHF sanction.

The IIHF sanctioned Ivan Fedotov on August 14 and imposed a one-year ban on international player transfers on CSKA Moscow. The IIHF's aim with the sanctions is to force CSKA to release him to return to the Flyers."



Now, CSKA's head coach and former NHLer Sergei Fedorov has made a controversial comment on this issue.

Fedorov's Comments



Here's what Fedorov stated:

«Reading certain things over the past month, I can say with confidence, in my opinion, everyone needed to wake up a long time ago,» said Fedorov, as per Bob Duff. «A special military operation is underway; the world has changed. Therefore, here everyone needs to wake up and understand what realities we live in, and who rules in our country— we or some laws from the other side?»

With everything going on in Russia right now, making declarations such as this is a bit insensitive. It's safe to say he didn't make many friends with that statement.

Fedorov decided to go against the IIHF's ruling, and it looks like Fedotov will play even if he's suspended.

This will probably generate more consequences for the organization...
