"Sergei Samsonov wants to return to the NHL and his agent is talking to a number of teams about the possibility but he hasn't agreed to a deal yet.
Reports on Tuesday morning suggested that Samsonov had agreed to a deal with the San Jose Sharks. But CSNNE.com said later, quoting agent Neil Abbott, that nothing had been finalized.
Samsonov, a 33-year-old from Moscow who was drafted eighth overall in 1997, didn't play at all last season. In 2010-11, he had 13 goals and 27 assists in 78 games with the Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers."
