More on Possible Hockey Defections: An update from a post from this morning- the Sports Business Daily quotes a story from the December 15 Sporting News stating that 19-year-old Nikolai Zherdev, who secretly left his Russian team to fly to the US to join the Columbus Blue Jackets, is fleeing Russian army obligations by coming to the United States.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that two other Blue Jacket players who currently play for CSKA (the Russian team) have been conscripted into the Army after Zherdev's departure.
