Pavel Datsyuk: Re-ups with KHL club for one year

Datsyuk signed a one-year contract extension with SKA St. Petersburgh of the KHL on Tuesday, hockeybuzz.com reports.

It was widely speculated that Datsyuk -- who'll presumably be a first-ballot NHL Hall of Famer -- would return to the Red Wings, but instead, he's returning to the club with whom he's played the past two seasons. The prolific two-way legend amassed 918 points (314 goals, 604 assists) through 953 games with Detroit between 2001-16.
