Unable to find an offer he deemed suitable, it appears as though unrestricted free agent defenseman Denis Grebeshkov is heading back to Russia.

KHL club SKA St. Petersburg is reporting on their website that Grebeshkov has agreed to join the team and will sign a two-year deal by the end of the week.

While financial details were not released, the deal is believed to be in excess of the $3.15 million he earned last season while splitting time between the Nashville Predators and the Edmonton Oilers.

The 26-year old had seven goals and 14 assists in 51 games last season, missing significant time with a torn MCL and a lower-body injury.  He also was part of Russia's disappointing Olympic side, picking up one assist in four games at the 2010 Vancouver Games.

Originally a first round pick, 18th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Grebeshkov had 17 goals and 67 assists in 227 career NHL games.
