Maple Leafs' Joffrey Lupul signs with KHL club

As the NHL lockout drags on through the fall, another Leaf is choosing to land overseas.

Joffrey Lupul is the latest member of the Maple Leafs that will soon be skating for a European club after he agreed to terms with Avtomobilist of the KHL, based in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg.

Lupul, a 2012 Bill Masterton Trophy finalist that tallied 67 points in 66 games in an injury-shortened season, is just the latest Toronto forward to seek playing time elsewhere during the lockout.

Mikhail Grabovski (CSKA Moscow), Nikolai Kulemin (Mettalurg) and Clarke MacArthur (Germany) are also keeping busy while the NHL owners and players' union are at an impasse.
