It appears Washington Capitals forward Mikhail Grabovski has already found somewhere to play - it's just not with a hockey team.

According to a report from Belarus-1 TV, Grabovski has signed a deal to play soccer with Krumkachy Minsk, a club in Belarus' second league.

Chairman of Krumkachy, Denis Shunto, said Grabovski will start playing for the team in late July.

The 30-year-old, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, is using the soccer stint as a way to keep in shape over the off-season.

With the Capitals last year, Grabovski tallied 13 goals and 22 assists for 35 points in 58 games.
