There are always loopholes and as someone said about the IIHF with the games being in Russia can you honestly see them excluding them from the hockey tourney I don't.
Depends on how the laws are written overseas. From my understanding, he has to fulfill the last year of his KHL contract and if he wants to play pro hockey after that, he has to finish out his ELC with the Preds whether it's with them or with another team. If he re-signs in Russia the IIHF will get involved and the cold war will start all over again.
