Defenseman Steve Eminger has come to a preliminary agreement with the KHL’s Admiral Vladivostok according to Sport-Express and CSN’s Sarah Baicker.

Eminger was originally taken with the 12th overall pick in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. At his height in 2008-09 he had five goals and 26 points in 71 contests while averaging 21:37 minutes per game. However he has been unable to re-establish himself as a top-four defenseman over his last three campaigns with the New York Rangers.
