Yohann Auvitu put on waivers by his Russian club in KHL

Is this already the end of the Russian adventure for Yohann Auvitu? The KHL (the Eurasian league) announced this Thursday that Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk had placed the French international defender on the “rejection list”, the equivalent of waivers in the NHL, when a team waives the rights of a player. Now the other 21 franchises in the Russian Hockey League have less than 48 hours to claim the player trained in Mont-Blanc.

After this time, the former NHLer (Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils) will be sent to SHL, the Russian Second Division, until his contractual situation is settled.
