Former Pittsburgh player Alexei Morozov named KHL president

MOSCOW (AP) — Former Pittsburgh Penguins forward Alexei Morozov has been named president of the Kontinental Hockey League. The Russia-based league says Morozov was the unanimous choice of its board. Predecessor Dmitry Chernyshenko stepped down after being appointed a deputy prime minister in the Russian government last month. Chernyshenko had been in charge since 2014 and tried to stabilize the league's finances by closing salary cap loopholes. The KHL also expanded into China under Chernyshenko with the addition of the Kunlun Red Star team. Morozov was previously the KHL's vice president for developing junior hockey.
