Sources tell TSN another NHL player may be about to jump to the KHL.

Carolina Hurricanes forward Dan LaCouture is believed to have left the team for Russia, however, the Hurricanes remain unclear as to which Kontinental Hockey League team LaCouture is attempting to join.

The Hurricanes intend on suspending LaCouture, who was signed as a free agent in October, if he doesn't have an immediate change of heart.

If LaCouture walks away from his contract with the Hurricanes this will fuel the ongoing feud between the KHL and the National Hockey League as, once again, the Kontinental Hockey League would have apparently abandoned its policy of respecting NHL contracts.

The 31-year old veteran has played in 11 games this season with the Hurricanes and has scored two goals.
