Nikolay Goldobin is planning to leave the NHL and return to his homeland to continue his hockey career.
The Russian forward, who played in the Vancouver Canucks organization this season, confirmed as much to TSN 1040's Rick Dhaliwal on Saturday.
"The Canucks did not want to sign me," Goldobin said. "I was disappointed how it turned out in (Vancouver) but I am happy to sign in (the) KHL and will try (the) NHL again in two years."
Sport-Express' Igor Eronko reported earlier Saturday that Goldobin was "set to sign" a two-year contract with CSKA Moscow.
