Contract of top Flyers prospect has been terminated

This is an odd turn of events!



Well, this is one out of left field.

Philadelphia Flyers goaltending prospect Ivan Fedotov has just had his contract of CNKA Moscow of the KHL terminated, and he's now a free agent. However, his NHL rights are still currently held by the Flyers. 

The reason being is that he reportedly violated an IIHF ruling that found in favor of the Flyers, with whom he signed a $1.1 million deal. However, he was thrust into military service in his native Russia and missed all of last season, and returned to play for CSKA Moscow after signing a deal with them. 

"Based on the evidence provided to the IIHF by the involved parties, the IIHF has determined that Ivan Fedotov has a valid NHL Contract with the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey Club for the 2023/2024 season," the IIHF saidin its ruling last year. "Accordingly, the IIHF has determined that Ivan Fedotov was in breach of a Professional Player Contract per Article II.4.1 of the IIHF International Transfer Regulations when he signed a contract with CSKA hockey club for the 2023/2024 season."

This past season with CSKA Moscow, he racked up a record of 21-22-1 with a 2.37 goals-against average and .914 save percentage.
