Craig Woodcroft has been named the new head coach of KHL's Dinamo Minsk team and he's bringing Mikhail Grabovski along with him.

It's going to be the second tenure behind the bench for Woodcroft with Minsk. Meanwhile, for Grabovski, it's going to be his first pro coaching job.

Per the press release:

Grabovski has not officially announced his retirement, but due to health problems, Mikhail has not played in official matches for a long time, gradually mastering the coaching craft

This certainly should count as an official retirement from professional hockey from the Belorussian player.
