Evgeny Artyukhin appears to be in the clear

From Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune:

I know a lot of you guys have been asking about what in the world is going on with Evgeny Artyukhin. I too have noticed that his name does not appear on any active rosters for the team and with the whole mess involving players signing out of Russia or into the new KHL in Russia, I wondered if there was any kind of a hang up on his two-year contract.

I’ve spoken to at least two different people today who are not aware of any kind of a problem. I have been informed by one person that the contract has already been approved by the league. Another who is connected with the league said they were not aware of any kind of a problem with the deal.

If these reports are true, I am sure the Bolts are happy they don’t have to deal with any kind of transfer issue.
