Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk will be in Russia for a little bit longer.

Datsyuk's agent, Gary Greenstin, told the Detroit Free Press that his client has been granted permission to play in the KHL's All-Star Game Sunday in Chelyabinsk, Russia.


“Pavel loves Red Wings organization. He make his name in Detroit,” Greenstin said. “He belongs to them, and Detroit belong to him.

“He has permission to play in All-Star Game. He had reservation to fly the 11th; now I believe he will fly on the 14th.”

The Red Wings are expected to open training camp Sunday. Datsyuk will then join them either Monday or Tuesday.

Datsyuk has played 31 games for the KHL's CSKA Moscow, where he recorded 11 goals and 25 assists.
