Earlier this morning, we had reported that Andrei Markov would not be suiting up for the Montreal Canadiens this upcoming season. Quickly followed a memorable thank you by the hockey team and an explanation by Geoff Molson.
Well, Arpon Basu, director of redaction at NHL.com, has just announced that Markov will not be pursuing his career in the NHL. Rather, he has opted to look to the KHL for his future.
According to Basu, this was a personal decision by Markov, who made it clear that there had been NHL offers.
More details to come as the story unfolds.
