He has what his agent, Mark Guy, calls a "minor injury" that kept him out of his game in the KHL tonight. What area is the injury? That we don't know at the moment. Just how minor is minor? Don't know that either. Good, accurate info out of Russia still isn't easy.
There doesn't seem to be much new with his contract talks. That can always change quickly but for now it seems the sides are still apart on money. Where have we heard that before?
