Andrew Ladd has changed his mind on playing in the Kontinental Hockey League.

The Winnipeg Jets captain has decided to stay in Winnipeg for family reasons.

Earlier on Thursday, Avangard Omsk of the KHL announced that Ladd had signed on with the team. Sources confirm Ladd agreed to terms with Omsk but did not finalize the deal before changing his mind.

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.
