Former NHL player Sergei Fedorov is reportedly coming out of retirement to play in the KHL at the age of 43.

The general manager of CSKA Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League will lace up his skates and play for the team on Friday against Magnitogorsk Metallurg, reports Russia's SovSport.

Fedorov is returning to the ice due to player injuries.

Fedorov played for Metallurg in 2009 for three seasons before hanging up his skates in 2012.

The potential future Hockey Hall of Famer played for the Detroit Red Wings, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Columbus Blue Jackets and Washington Capitals over 18 seasons. In 1,248 career NHL games, Fedorov scored 483 goals and 1,179 points and won the Stanley Cup three times with the Wings.
