It was a sad day when Pavel Datsyuk announced that he was leaving The NHL to return to play in Russia.  Detroit Red Wings fans are going to miss the him in action.  Recently the fans in St. Petersburg got to experience the in game magic of Pavel Datsyuk.

I first saw Pavel's  goal over at Winging It In MotownPavel now plays for SKA St. Petersburg of The KHL.  Watch as he shows off his shot and scores his first goal of the season in the first :33 seconds of the game.

It is hard watching him play in another uniform but at least its not for another NHL team.
