Sergei Fedorov has signed with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Continental Hockey League, the club announced on Thursday.

The deal is reportedly for two years, and unites Fedorov with his younger brother, Fedor.

According to his agent Pat Brisson, Fedorov wanted to fulfill his father's life-long wish of seeing his sons play on the same team.

The 39-year old played his first 13 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings before dividing the last five seasons between Anaheim, Columbus, and Washington. Fedorov leaves the NHL with 483 goals and 1179 points in 1248 games. His best season was 1993-94, when he scored 56 goals and added 64 assists to capture the Hart Trophy, along with the Selke and Lester B. Pearson awards as well.

The three-time Stanley Cup winner added 52 goals and 176 points in the post-season. He was selected by Detroit in the fourth round of the 1989 draft.
