Tomas Kaberle looks to be the latest aging NHL player to take his diminishing talents across the pond. According to a report from Czech site iSport.cz the veteran defenceman is nearing a deal with Dinamo Minsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. The 35-year-old Kaberle became an unrestricted free agent on July 5 after his contract with the Montreal Canadiens which carried a $4.25-million cap hit through 2013-14 was bought out by the club on June 28. Kaberle’s buyout marked the club’s second and final compliance buyout and freed up cap space for the off-season. Kaberle played just 10 games for the Habs in 2012-13 registering a career-low three assists. A frequent healthy scratch he had slipped on the team’s depth chart and was not called upon in the postseason.
