The Russian goaltender Ivan Fedotov signed a massive contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Fedotov, who left the KHL and joined the Flyers for the last stretch of the regular season, has agreed on the terms of a two-year contract with Piladelphia.
The deal, valued at $3.25 million AAV, surprised many people. Fedotov's performances in the three games he played with the Flyers generated mixed opinions from fans: he has not-so-good numbers of 4.95 GAA and a .811 SV%.
However, he still has great potential, which is probably what convinced Briere to give him so much money.
"Ivan Fedotov agrees to 2 year extension with the @NHLFlyers. $3.25 mil AAV."

According to a report, the deal was already in place before Fedotov left Russia, which explains why he got so much:
I know the Fedotov AAV is higher than expected, but the contract was agreed upon prior to the player coming over from Russia.

I'm told that the contract had to be a certain number to get Fedotov to come to North America.

Not ideal, but understandable given the circumstances."

Fedotov, 27, could play a valuable role in Philadelphia as soon as next season. Let's hope he uses the off-season to work on his game and adapt to North-American hockey.
