Whats going on? Is he under contract with his KHL next season or not?
Zuke has an NHL-out clause in his contract with Metallurg.
However, i think that out clause only goes into effect after the KHL season ends (officially 30th of April or something), so i guess that Zuke was technically still theirs, and they could have made life difficult for the transfer.
They solved that in what appears to be an unusual manner. Instead of ending the contract due to the clause, they apparently "loaned him" to the Rangers for the remainder of the season (note, this is just what i've read, i've not seen anything official on it).
If that is true however, Zuke should still be under contract with Metallurg for next season (there has also been some writing in Norwegian papers on Metallurg wanting clarifications on this and that as they are restructuring the team).
Unless he uses the clause once the KHL season ends.
That is my understanding of it at least
