Nashville Predators free agent Radek Bonk to sign with KHL team

Thanks to a pointer from Dmitri Chesnokov on Twitter, we have news that free agent Radek Bonk is apparently preparing to sign a contract with Yaroslav Lokomotiv of the KHL. The article comes from the Sovetsky Sport website, which unfortunately doesn't appear to offer an English version. It strains my one year of Russian classes I took in high school to get much more than that he's about to sign the deal, and that the news comes out of a website called Yaroslav Sport (which I couldn't find). It also mentions his previous stints in Montreal and Ottawa.

I don't think anyone should be surprised by this move, as Bonk has been rather ineffective during his two years in Nashville. Outside of good faceoff work last season, he failed to provide any consistent offensive punch, while not exactly shutting down the opposition, either.  If anything, this opens the door even further for young centers like Cal O'Reilly, Mike Santorelli, or even Colin Wilson to earn 3rd-line duty with the Predators this fall.
