Bobrovsky talking to SKA Petersberg and Columbus

Ironic if he wins the Vezina and leaves for $8M/year in the KHL.

Vezina Trophy-nominated goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, a restricted free agent at the end of the season, is talking contract with two teams.

Bobrovsky told Russian media outlet Sport-Express he's negotiating with the Columbus Blue Jackets and SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL. The 24-year-old didn't comment further but previous reports have said SKA is willing to throw big bucks, upwards of $8 million per season, to sign him.

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen has already said he'd match any NHL offer for Bobrovsky, one of three nominees for the NHL's goalie of the year award. But he can't do the same for a KHL deal.
