There's a legal tussle going on right now between the Kings and the KHL about Nikolai Prokhorkin's contract status, but it's hard to find much information about it.
Almost all of the details we have come from Russian sources, when CSKA of the KHL learned of Prokhorkin's contract with Los Angeles in early September, and went public with its objections about it. Across the pond, our usual sources for Kings info--the team's own website, the Insider blog, and the Los Angeles Times--have been curiously silent. There was not even an announcement about his contract, though he could hardly have been assigned to Manchester without one.
So, what's going on?
