20 September 2012, 12:31

KHL President Alexander Medvedev has released a special announcement regarding the current lockout in the National Hockey League

“On the 15th of September 2012, the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the National Hockey League and the NHL Players' Association expired. As the two sides had failed to reach a new agreement, the NHL officially implemented a lockout, meaning the Association’s players currently have no legal obligations to their employers. The Kontinental Hockey League, in close observance of all the regulations governing player transfers set down by the International Ice Hockey Federation, completed the relevant transfer cards for representatives of the NHL and gave advance notice of an amendment to KHL regulations covering the signing of players currently under contract to NHL clubs. The Kontinental Hockey League has decided to allow the National Hockey League players to play in the KHL Championship from the 20th of September, 2012.”
