MOSCOW, August 16 (RIA Novosti)
KHL newcomer Slovan Bratislava has signed Miroslav Satan on a trial contract, the KHL said Thursday.
Satan won the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009, the high point of an NHL career that included 1,050 regular season appearances.
Satan previously played for Slovan during the 2004 NHL lockout and last season, when the team was in the Slovakian league.
His last stint in the KHL was with Dynamo Moscow in the 2010-11 season, when his contract was not renewed after the season ended.
Trial contracts in the KHL are effective only in the preseason and allow players to evaluate players.
A trial contract must expire no later than three days before the start of the regular season.
The new KHL season starts September 4.

While the sides continue to trade tough talk and symbolic sanctions, the Kremlin and the White House are also holding a parallel dialogue on the coordinated geopolitical revision of Eastern Europe.
