      Analysis: The 35-year-old Ruslan Fedotenko played in the KHL last season for HC Donbass, scoring 17 points (7 goals, 10 assists) in 46 games. At this point in his career, he offers little by way of fantasy upside, since his career high in points (41) came way back in 2005-06 with Tampa Bay. If he does manage to land a roster spot with the Devils, Fedotenko will likely be deployed in a checking-line role.
    • Ex-NHLer Fedotenko Ponders Return to North America

      News: Ruslan Fedotenko, who signed a three-year, $9 million contract with HC Donbass of the KHL last summer, is looking to return to the NHL for the upcoming season, the Toronto Star reports.
      Analysis: HC Donbass, the only Ukrainian team in the KHL, will go on a sabbatical for the upcoming season in light of the ongoing political tumult between Ukraine and Russia, which was recent escalated following the downing of a civilian jet on July 17, resulting in 298 deaths. While the rest of the KHL is expected to proceed operations as normal despite the increasing unrest in the region, several players from Donbass are expected to defect elsewhere, with Ruslan Fedotenko representing the most recognizable name on the roster. The 35-year-old, who scored four goals and nine assists in 47 games with the Flyers in 2012-13, has already had "discussions with multiple NHL teams," according to his agent. Fedotenko would likely be ticketed for no better than a bottom-six role with any NHL club, should he eventually find his way back in the league.
