While there has been no direct official confirmation from either the Nashville Predators organization or Avangard Omsk, reports are floating that Predators forward Sergei Kostitsyn is close to signing a one-year deal with the team he played with during the most recent lockout.

Izvestia, a long-standing publication in Russia, is already reporting that Kostitsyn and Omsk have agreed upon the contract and are close to signing it. The original source for the first Kostitsyn rumors, Izvestia noted that the Predators winger had already been in talks to return to the KHL only six days ago. This was confirmed by David Poile yesterday at his media availability prior to the NHL Draft this weekend in Newark:

From Josh Cooper at The Tennessean:

While Poile said that “nothing has been done or finalized,” he indicated he will not stand in Kostitsyn’s way if he decides to play in Russia, where he spent the NHL lockout this past season.

“I’m talking to his agent, so I’m not exactly sure how that’s going to play out,” Poile said. “I know he’s had some overtures from there, and we will work this out with Sergei if it’s appropriate.”

Kostitsyn’s agent, Don Meehan, spoke with Chris Johnston of Rogers Sportsnet:

We’ll have more information on this as it becomes available, however it’s quite possible that Kostitsyn may be on his way to the KHL very soon.
