MOSCOW (AP) -- Former Detroit Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk has signed a two-year contract with Russian club SKA St. Petersburg after leaving the NHL.
   Datsyuk left the Red Wings last month with a year left on his contract, saying it was time to return home to his native Russia.
   He moves to one of Russia's richest clubs, which already has former NHL stars Slava Voynov and Ilya Kovalchuk on its roster.
   SKA provided no financial details of Datsyuk's new contract, saying only that it was "drawn up for two seasons." He had been on a three-year, $22.5 million deal in Detroit.
   SKA said Datsyuk would play as No. 13, as he did in Detroit, and that he would oversee a summer training camp for talented youngsters from the area.
