NHL NIXES FEDOROV'S OFFER SHEET, CASE GOES TO ARBITRATION
Published February 24, 1998
The NHL ruled Monday that the Hurricanes' $38M offer sheet to Sergei Fedorov was invalid, according to Jason La Canfora of the DETROIT FREE PRESS. The case will be heard by arbitrator John Sands in a conference call Wednesday. The league based its ruling on a clause in the deal that would make a $12M portion of Fedorov's $26M signing bonus payable in whole should the team that signs him make it to the conference finals this year (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 2/24).
