Russian defector told not to come back!

I'm sure you all have lost sleep worried on weather Russian sensation Nikolai Zherdev would have to be returned to his junior league equivalent team because he left to play for the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets too early!

According to the two major sources, Canada's TSN and NHL.com both have article headlines saying that Zherdev can stay in the NHL. The Russian military's team, CSKA Moscow, claimed he did not get IIHF approval and still had time on his military commitments.
