Winnipeg Jets captain Andrew Ladd has signed with Avangard Omsk of the KHL, the club announced Thursday.

The 26-year-old is just the second Canadian-born player to join the Russian-based league since the beginning of the NHL lockout last month.

Fellow Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane made his debut with Dinamo Minsk earlier this week.

Ladd had 28 goals, 22 assists and 64 penalty minutes in 82 games with Winnipeg last season.

A two-time Stanley Cup winner, Ladd has 120 goals, 138 assists and 283 penalty minutes in 484 NHL games with Carolina, Chicago, Atlanta and Winnipeg.
