Breaking: KHL Team acquires rights to multiple NHL stars to prepare for potential 2020 lockout

Sebastian Aho David Pastrnak

CSKA Moscow, a team that currently sits atop the KHL’s West Conference, has reportedly acquired rights for Sebastian Aho, David Pastrnak and Joel Armia. These moves have been made for a potential lockout in 2020, and would position CSKA to acquire top notch talent.


It’s believed that CSKA Moscow obtained the rights to these three current NHLers from Severstal Cherepovets for cash. It's a low risk move for potentially high reward. If the top league in the world isn't operating, the KHL will be the next best option for stars. For the last 25 years, the NHL has gone through three lockouts, two of which shortened the season to 48 games while the other wiped out a full season.

Do you think there will be an NHL lockout in 2020?
