THE NHL lockout entered its fourth week Sunday and the Flyers already have realized their biggest fear, watching one of their players sustain an injury while playing overseas. According to a report on his club's website, Flyers forward Jake Voracek sprained his right knee in the third period of a game Saturday night while playing for HC Lev Praha in the KHL. The severity of his injury remains unclear. "Early indication is he'll be out of the lineup about 4 weeks," Lev Praha said in a translated statement on its website.

RYAN GUNDERSON was intrigued by Russia, just not entirely sure he wanted to make the jump to the Kontinental Hockey League. The Bensalem, Pa., native heard all the stories. Plus, he'd been making a nice living in Sweden, where he was the leading scorer among defensemen in two leagues. He met a girl from Sweden. He won a Swedish league championship. The offers were tempting: a significant pay raise and a chance to play in the second-best league in the world. The catch: living and working in Russia.

For the second straight day, the Flyers signed a player from Russia's KHL. They added speedy 5-foot-11, 188-pound free-agent right winger Aaron Palushaj, a Michigan native, on Thursday. Palushaj, 25, played 68 NHL games earlier in his career. He split last season between two KHL teams, collecting a total of seven goals and 21 points in 53 games. A former player at the University of Michigan, Palushaj played briefly with Montreal, Colorado, and Carolina in the NHL, accumulating three goals and 14 points while averaging 9 minutes and 2 seconds of ice time in 68 games.

THE FLYERS signed free-agent right wing Aaron Palushaj to a one-year deal yesterday, with the hope that he can parlay a successful season in the world's second-best league into to a full-time NHL depth position. According to a source, Palushaj's deal is a two-way (NHL/AHL) contract that will pay him $575,000 in the NHL and $225,000 in the AHL. Palushaj, 25, is an American who spent the last season playing in Russia's KHL, scoring 21 points in 53 games. A precipitous drop in the Russian ruble last December halved the value of most contracts, making guaranteed American money a lot more attractive to players, especially those who hail from North America.

Nashville forward Alex Radulov was one of six players whose new contracts were suspended by hockey's international governing body yesterday until the legality of the deals could be probed. Radulov, under contract for another season with the Predators, signed a contract with a Russian team in the new Continental Hockey League (KHL). That deal seemingly would be in breach of a pact agreed to July 10 between the KHL, the NHL, the NHL Players' Association, and international hockey leagues in which contracts worldwide would be honored and respected.

NHL owners will gather in New York on Wednesday to vote on the tentative labor agreement reached with the union last weekend. If a majority approves, as expected, the NHL will move one step closer toward the official end of the lockout. A majority of the 700 players also must approve the deal for hockey to return to the ice. A 48-game regular season would then be expected to begin Jan. 19. The NHL has yet to release a schedule. According to TSN in Canada, teams will play two division opponents four times each, two other division opponents five times each, and the other 10 conference foes three times each.

" More than a month later, Bryzgalov has not yet found a home for next season. Last week, Bryzgalov was left off Russia's Sochi Olympic evaluation roster, even though he played for his country at the World Championships in May. Sergei Bobrovsky and 38-year-old Evgeni Nabokov were invited.

If Craig Button's ability to predict the future is to be trusted, the Flyers and their general manager, Ron Hextall, will face an interesting decision when it comes time for them to make the No. 7 overall pick in next month's NHL draft. Button used to the GM of the Calgary Flames, and he's the director of scouting for TSN, Canada's answer to ESPN. He knows his stuff, and according to his latest mock draft, the Flyers will have the opportunity to select an 18-year-old defenseman named Ivan Provorov, who spent the 2014-15 season with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League.

The NHL reached an agreement with a new Russian hockey league yesterday that temporarily ends the threat of players being lured away by big-money offers. The pact to respect player contracts across all borders followed offers made last month by teams in Russia's Continental Hockey League - which begins play in September - to entice Evgeni Malkin out of the final year of his deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was reached at a meeting of the NHL, the NHL Players' Association and international hockey leagues in Zurich, Switzerland, the home of the International Ice Hockey Federation.

SCOTT GOMEZ' season was over before the Montreal Canadiens held their first practice. The Canadiens sent their underperforming center home for the rest of the season before they opened training camp on Sunday, ensuring their ability to buy out the his contract next summer to remove his team-high $7.3 million salary cap hit from the books. Under the collective bargaining agreement signed Saturday, the cap is to plunge by about $10 million next season, but teams will be allowed two "amnesty" buyouts to help reach the cap. However, if a player is injured, he cannot be bought out. General manager Marc Bergevin said it was safest for the team that Gomez not play this season.

CARLO COLAIACOVO was getting antsy. The calendar was soon turning to November. He had already passed up multiple offers to NHL training camps on tryout contracts, holding out for a firm offer in Russia's KHL that never materialized. "They don't tend to do things there the way people do things here," Colaiacovo said with a smile. He might have dodged a bullet - perhaps both literally and figuratively, with all that's gone on in Russia. Colaiacovo, 31, will make his debut with the Flyers tonight against Edmonton after signing with the team as a free agent Thursday.

SHAYNE Gostisbehere will make his NHL debut tonight, the first step in determining his length of stay in Philadelphia. A permanent spot on the Flyers' roster is far from guaranteed - though an exceptional start could go a long way in convincing GM Ron Hextall he is ready for the bright lights. Before deciding on Gostisbehere last night, Hextall spent most of yesterday working the phones to try to acquire a veteran replacement for the injured Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald, both out for about a month.

FORMER FLYERS coach Mike Keenan has another Cup: The Gagarin Cup. Keenan, whose first NHL head-coaching job was with the Flyers in the mid-1980s, coached Metallurg Magnitogorsk to the Kontinental Hockey League championship yesterday. Metallurg beat Lev Prague, 7-4, in Game 7, making Keenan the first North American coach to win the Gagarin Cup and the first to win the NHL and KHL championships. Keenan won the Stanley Cup with the Rangers in 1994, his only season with the team.

He also never has been put in the position he will be in tonight, asked to stop the New York Rangers' momentum, buy some time early in the game for his team to establish its revised plan, all while shaking off nearly 2 weeks' worth of rust and any lingering fatigue from what most believe was a concussion suffered in the second-to-last game of the regular season. "After 2 weeks off, is it probable that he's going to go in there and be lights out?"

One day after he twice hung up the phone in a conference call with reporters who wanted to discuss his buyout, free-spirited goalie Ilya Bryzgalov issued a news release through his agent, thanking the Flyers; fans; and, especially, Ed Snider, chairman of the club's parent company, Comcast-Spectacor. Bryzgalov, 33, was bought out of the final seven years of his nine-year, $51 million contract on Tuesday. He will be paid $23 million over the next 14 years. By the time he stops receiving checks, he will receive a little more than $39 million for two years of work with the Flyers.
