Russian reporter and recalcitrant Sabres fan Slava Malamud just shared this nugget, which we’re now passing onto you. Caps prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov, now finished with his KHL season, will be coming to North America soon. Slava says within the next five days.
Keep in mind that there are lots of hurdles to clear: visas, travel, signing a contract. Don’t expect Kuznetsov to play against the Penguins on Monday or anything, but he could be lacing up at KCI as soon as next week.
