KHL’s Avtomobilist Jekaterinburg announced on Tuesday that they have signed Pavel Datsyuk to a one-year contract extension.
Datsyuk is born in Jekaterinburg and he returned home to play for his hometown team last season, however, he ran into health issues. He took part in 47 KHL games and underperformed earning only 26 points (7G and 19A). After the season the player was unsure of whether or not to continue his career. However, Datsyuk is confident that he can continue playing.

The one-year extension appears to be worth around 140 thousand dollars.
As we reported earlier last month:
”Datsyuk himself and his agent have kept telling the media and people that were curious about players’ future that there is a lot to consider and we would eventually hear from them about their decision. Turns out there are people that blabbed and now we know what is going to happen.
Datsyuk is nearing a one-year contract extension with his hometown club according to multiple sources.”
