Sergei Fedorov is about to resume his professional hockey career. The 43-year-old Fedorov is ready to make his return to the ice and will suit up for CSKA Moscow of the KHL on Friday. Fedorov last played for Metallurg Mg back in March of 2012 and now (if the reports are true) will abandon retirement after a little over a year and a half.
The move is a fascinating one considering Fedorov has served as the general manager of CSKA Moscow since 2012. The team has been reportedly short on centers and now Fedorov has found someone to fill the void – himself.
This Friday 43-yrs Sergey Fedorov (GM CSKA now) will resume hockey career – will play for CSKA vs Metallurg Mg (Mike Keenan team).

Fedorov's hockey career is already pretty legendary. He started playing for CSKA Moscow back in 1986 and then moved over to the NHL with the Detroit Red Wings in 1990. He stayed with the Red Wings through 2002-03 before spending time with Anaheim, Columbus and Washington. Fedorov then returned to the KHL where he skated with Metallurg Mg until 2012.
How will history remember Fedorov's return to professional hockey?
