The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York yesterday dismissed both complaints filed by Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Russian Super League against the NHL, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Evgeni Malkin.

"We are very pleased that all aspects of the litigation concerning Evgeni Malkin's right to play hockey for the Pittsburgh Penguins have now concluded," said Ted Black, the Penguins' vice president of business and legal affairs. "On behalf of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Mr. Malkin and his family, I want to thank Bill Daly and Julie Grand at the NHL and our attorneys, Brad Ruskin, Scott Eggers and the Proskauer Rose law firm, who represented us in this matter."

Metallurg filed suit after Malkin fled Russia to join the Penguins. The Russian club claimed to have a valid contract with Malkin, a claim that was upheld by a Russian Tribunal.
