As reported by various sources last week, the Vancouver Canucks have indeed signed Russian winger Sergei Shirokov to a two-year entry-level contract at a base salary of $875,000 per season plus bonuses.
However, James Mirtle of From the Rink is reporting that Shirokov's Kontinental Hockey League team, CSKA Moscow has launched legal action over the signing. This could explain why the signing has not been formally announced by the team yet.
Comments: What can the court do to stop a player from wanting out? They couldn't stop Evgeni Malkin from coming over to North America and couldn't stop Alexander Radulov from bolting to Russia.
