Kuznetsov Receives KHL Offer

Evgeny Kuznetsov, who enters this summer as a restricted free agent, was offered a KHL deal this morning, first reported by Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post. The Capitals are interested in bringing back Kuzy and protected him in the wake of the Vegas expansion draft. 

SKA offered Kuznetsov a three-year deal worth six million per season. As of Monday morning, Kuznetsov declined.

This is an offer from SKA, who’s just acquired Kuzy’s rights from Traktor Chelabynsk. Former NHL’er and good friend of Evgeny Kuznetsov, Pavel Datsyuk, is also on SKA.

The Capitals might have played a factor in it. After all, if he declined a deal that means something better is in the works between Kuzy and the Caps and they could be offering him more money thanks to the recent salary cap increase.
