Breaking: Russian Flyers Prospect Suspended by IIHF

One of the best prospects of the Philadelphia Flyers is in trouble with the IIHF!

Fedotov Gets Suspended by the IIHF

The Flyers' promising goaltender Ivan Fedotov has been suspended after he signed a contract in both the NHL and the KHL.

"The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) has ruled that G Ivan Fedotov has a valid NHL contract with #Flyers for the 23-24 season. The IIHF determined that Fedotov broke a rule of the IIHF International Transfer Regulations when he signed a contract with CSKA Moskva (KHL) for the 23-24 season.

The IIHF Regulations state that Fedotov was given two weeks to go back to PHI, or obtain a release from PHI. Fedotov did not do either in that time span, and he has now been given a four month suspension on playing in official national/international games, starting on September 1st.

CSKA Moskva has also been banned for a year from completing international transfers.

It is unclear if Fedotov will report to the Flyers for the 23-24 season, or if he will report to CSKA on a loan from the Flyers. PHI originally signed Fedotov to a one-year ELC prior to the 22-23 season, but it was moved to beginning in 23-24, due to Fedotov being required to complete military service in Russia."

We'll have to wait for updates before knowing where will Fedotov play next season, but we'd certainly like to see him in the NHL soon!
