NHL sets July 30 hearing for Russia-bound winger Jiri Hudler

DETROIT - The NHL has scheduled an arbitration hearing July 30 for Jiri Hudler, who says he's leaving the Detroit Red Wings to join Dynamo Moscow of Russia's Continental Hockey League.

Hudler signed a two-year, US$10-million deal to play for Dynamo Moscow. The Red Wings are seeking to retain rights to the 25-year-old winger should he return to the NHL in the future.

Red Wings spokesman John Hahn says the arbitration hearing will be in Toronto and Hudler will be represented by his agent, Petr Svoboda.

Hudler made $1.15 million with the Red Wings last season, and he reportedly turned down Detroit's offer of $3 million per year for up to five years.
