Newsflash: former Washington Capitals center Sergei Fedorov is playing hockey again. The Russian legend — who retired two years ago after spending two seasons with KHL’s Metallurg Magnitogorsk to become the general manager of CSKA Moscow — played in a Spengler Cup game today against the Rochester Americans. Fedorov played on the second line with Ilari Filppula and Igor Saprykin.

CSKA won 4-3 and Fedorov didn’t do much. He had two shots on goal. But who cares? He played an actual hockey game again. That’s worth celebrating.

After the game, the 44-year-old stated that he isn’t planning to play in the KHL.

Bummer. But congrats to you, Sergei. We will always love you.

    I have nothing but respect for Fedorov. I’m really enjoying the Spengler Cup. It’s exciting to see how an AHL team matches up to KHL, Swiss, and Czech clubs.

    After watching that game I watched Fedorov’s goal in game 7 against the rangers like 20 times in a row.

    Fedorov scored in the next game! Amazing!
