Lupul officially signs with Avtomobilist
The league originally considered Lupul ineligible to play in the KHL because of rules the league implemented in September. The KHL yielded this week, giving Lupul permission to sign with the league's last place team, RSport.ru reports.
Lupul logged 25 goals and 42 assists in 66 games for the Maple Leafs last season before he was shelved because of an injury, according to the Toronto Star.
Avtomobilist will need all the help in can get after ranking last in the KHL with only 15 team points in 23 games.
Nikolai Kulemin, a forward with the Toronto Maple Leafs, said that most top-tier KHL teams have already reached their limit of three players from the locked-out NHL. As a result, players like Lupul who waited until now to sign with the KHL will have to settle for teams at the bottom of the standings.
