The only thing being an RFA effects is his ability to sign with other NHL teams. Since he doesn't have a contract with Colorado, he doesn't have to tell them anything. Just like he wouldn't have to tell them if he got up quit hockey and got a job as a janitor. The KHL is just another job for him, he is not required to tell Colorado anything.


Although he probably did because he lost likely wishes to return.
