Pavel Datsyuk’s move to the KHL paid off on Sunday as SKA St. Petersburg won the league’s Gagarin Cup.

Datsyuk missed the game due to injury, but joined team captain, and fellow former NHLer, Ilya Kovalchuk on the ice to raise the cup.

St. Petersburg defeated Magnitogorsk in Game 5 of the best-of-seven series to win the title.

Datsyuk, who left the Detroit Red Wings to join St. Petersburg after last season, scored three goals and added five assists in the seven playoff games he appeared in. His last appearence came on March 12. During the regular season, the former Detroit Red Wing scored 12 goals and tallied 34 points in 44.
