This is what it says in Friday's Edmonton Journal (print)
According to Joanne Ireland's Game Time notes,".... Mikhnov watched Wednesday's game, went for a skate, then headed back overseas to attend the Russian National team's training camp. The strapping winger was impressed by all that he had seen and experienced, but he still needs to be signed. That will be left in the hands of his agent and General Manager Kevin Lowe. The Oilers must first decide if they want to sign him. No immediate developments are expected."
