Richard Zednik is apparently celebrating his nomination for the Masterton Trophy by taking his game to Russia.

According to a report on RDS.ca, the veteran forward has signed a two-year contract with Yaroslavl of the KHL on Thursday, potentially ending his 12 year NHL career.  The contract was announced on the same day that Zednik was named as one of the finalists, along with the Red Wings' Chris Chelios and the Predators' Steve Sullivan, for the Bill Masterton Trophy.

The Masterton Trophy is awarded annually to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

The 33-year old Zednik returned to the Florida Panthers this season after missing nearly a year after his neck was sliced by a skate during a February 10th, 2008 game against the Sabres.  He finished the season with 17 goals and 16 assists in 70 games.

In 745 career games, Zednik has scored 200 goals and added 179 assists.
