Dmitry Chesnokov of Puck Daddy is reporting that Leo Komarov is likely to sign with Moscow Dynamo of the KHL on Tuesday. There were rumours a few weeks back that Komarov was in negotiations with the club, but a Dynamo official has apparently stated the two sides have come to terms.
According to Michael Traikos of the National Post, the Leafs made an offer to Komarov of $1.3M a season, but the KHL squad offered a deal of reportedly over $3M per year. Komarov spent three-plus seasons with Dynamo and will likely play a larger role there than he would with the Leafs.
Although it appears he is heading back to Russia, Komarov’s deal apparently does have a clause in it that allows him to continue to evaluate NHL options.
