Steve Moses is back in the KHL.
Though it’s not with his old club.
Moses, who was unconditionally waived by Nashville last week, has signed with SKA Saint Petersburg, the club announced on Monday. SKA is the same big-money club that currently employs the likes of Ilya Kovalchuk, Alexei Ponikarovsky and Joakim Lindstrom — and now, it has one of the most prolific snipers in league history.
Moses, 26, set a KHL scoring record with 36 goals in 60 games last year for Jokerit.
The former University of New Hampshire standout opted to leave the KHL this summer for the NHL and, after being courted by a few teams, inked a one-year, $1 million deal with Nashville.
The contract, however, gave no guarantees of sticking in the NHL — only the $1 million was guaranteed, regardless of where Moses played.
The 26-year-old also didn’t require waivers to be sent to AHL Milwaukee, which is where he ended up after training camp.
Moses never appeared in a single regular season game for the Predators prior to getting waived. He did, however, score eight points in 16 games for the Admirals.
