Having led the Detroit Red Wings to the top of the standings many times over the years, it should come as no surprise that center Pavel Datsyuk's temporary new team, CSKA Moscow, is one of the better teams in its league. 16 games into the Kontinental Hockey League season, CSKA is fourth in the West conference with 28 points.

Sitting at the top of the KHL standings is Dynamo Moscow, led by Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin, with 35 points. They're ahead of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl and SKA Saint Petersburg, which is headed by New Jersey Devils star Ilya Kovalchuk.

The KHL team currently employing Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin, Metallurg Magnitogorsk, is tied with CSKA for seventh in the overall KHL standings, although it is fourth in the East conference.

The KHL operates on a three-point system, rather than the NHL's two-point system: wins are worth three points, overtime wins are worth two points and an overtime loss is worth one point.
