The KHL has a new president, according to Igor Eronko of Sport-Express , and it is a name familiar to NHL fans — especially those who root for the Pittsburgh Penguins (or perhaps the New Jersey Devils). Alexei Morozov will take over from Dmitry Chernyshenko, who stepped down earlier this year to take a job in Russian government.
Morozov, 42, played parts of seven seasons with the Penguins between 1997 and 2004, and he was famously named as the one shooter that Devils’ goaltender Martin Brodeur didn’t want to face on a breakaway. Morozov would return to Russia during the 2004 lockout and have an outstanding career that included two Gagarin Cup championships, two World Championship gold medals and a RSL championship.
