Dynamo Minsk sports director Igor Matushkin said he was "disappointed" when Toronto center Mikhail Grabovski decided to join CSKA Moscow.

They were in the hunt for Grabovski but their poor start to the season may have contributed to him signing elsewhere. Dynamo Minsk has won just three of their first nine games of the 2012-13 season. The KHL club was also close to bringing in Minnesota goaltender Niklas Backstrom, but an ankle injury has derailed that plan for the time being.
