Report: Nikita Filatov Returning to NHL

According to Yahoo! Sports, Nikita Filatov will be returning to the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets after spending most of last season in Russia.

He was frustrated with then head coach Ken Hitchcock last season, who did not like the way Filatov played. The young russian often found himself planted on the bench, which made him decide to leave for his home land.

Hitchcock’s firing may have something to do with Filatov’s decision.
