Sergei Fedorov may come out of retirement to play in the KHL

I'm at the stage in my life when there are very few players from my childhood left around, so it's extra exciting when one of them is in the news for an on-ice activity. When Jaromir Jagr returned to the NHL in 2011-12, I think I ran around in circles screaming for two days straight. Which brings us to 43-year-old Sergei Fedorov, who appears to be set to hit the ice for the KHL team he is currently the GM of, CSKA Moscow.

I'm at the stage in my life when there are very few players from my childhood left around, so it's extra exciting when one of them is in the news for an on-ice activity. When Jaromir Jagr returned to the NHL in 2011-12, I think I ran around in circles screaming for two days straight.

Which brings us to 43-year-old Sergei Fedorov, who appears to be set to hit the ice for the KHL team he is currently the GM of, CSKA Moscow.

From Dmitry Chesnokov:

43 year old #KHL CSKA GM Sergei Fedorov is un-retiring, according to SovSport; will play this Friday in the #KHL.

Breathe, Rory, breathe.

It really wasn't that long ago Fedorov suited up in the KHL. He played three seasons with Magnitogorsk from 2009-2012 and posted 22 points in 43 games in his last campaign.

According to Andrey Osadchenko, the move has a lot to do with Fedorov's team "suffering with tons of injuries."

CSKA has won five of its 15 games so far this season and are in a four-way tie for seventh in the KHL's West Conference.

Fedorov won two Selke Trophies, a Hart and three Stanley Cups in his 18-year NHL career with Detroit, Anaheim, Columbus and Washington. In 1,248 games he notched 483 goals and 1,179 points.

He's not coming back to the NHL, but, still...awesome.
