Years ago, no one knew if talented forward Evgeny Kuznetsov, a notorious waffler, would ever play in the NHL. “It’s kind of like seeing the Loch Ness Monster,” George McPhee said on March 8, 2014, the night Kuznetsov finally put ink to paper on a two-year entry-level contract.
After all that KHL drama though, it looks like Kuznetsov is ready to make a long-term commitment to the NHL. When speaking to The Washington Post’s Alex Prewitt Monday about his recent two-year extension, Kuznetsov stated his desire again to stay in Washington for the rest of his career.
