A KHL team was aboard, one of it's members being Josef Vasicek who played for the Hounds in junior.

Josef Vasicek was the first import to captain a CHL team. He was a great Greyhound both on and off the ice and he continued to give back to our community even when he played in the NHL. Many in the Soo still had connections with him long after his Junior days. RIP Josef.

Why was Pavol Demitra a 3 time All Star for the NHL and only 36yr old playing in the KHL?

At a guess? To be near his family is one I can come up with. $ is another. Helping to get the KHL established and working to make the hockey= the NHL is a third. To raise his kids "at home" is a fourth. While the NHL is still recognized as the premier league on the planet, the gap is narrowing.
