My only thought would be that him being a RFA nullifies the KHL restrictions and psuedo-lawyers him as having a contract in the NHL allowing him to sign a lockout deal. But I doubt anyone makes an exception for him this late into the season so I have to keep a healthy dose of reservation that this rumor has any truth behind it.
