01:54 PM ET 06.06 | Pending-unrestricted free agent Sergei Gonchar stated that he has not signed a contract with a club in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League. However, reports are surfacing saying that Gonchar is nearing a deal with Metallurg Magnitogorsk. Gonchar confirmed that he has received offers from KHL clubs. The 39-year-old defenseman finished out the final year of a three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Ottawa Senators in 2013. He previously stated that he was interested in playing two more seasons in the NHL and hoped to do so with the Senators. Whether he will be afforded that opportunity remains to be seen.

No one wants old Gonch.

Gonchar has enough in the tank for the KHL. He played for MM during the lockout. This thread really isn't earth shattering.
