Date: March 4, 2024 Time: 00:37:28

Russian goalkeepers became rich in New York, Tarasenko did not find the club. How did the market open up in the NHL?

On the same day, almost all Russian hockey players, whose old contracts had expired, decided their future. We are talking about all “domestic” transactions on July 1st.

Klim Kostin in Detroit

Contract Terms: Two years, $2 million capital

Restricted free agent Kostin did not enter the market, but he also signed a new contract yesterday. Recall that Edmonton, not reaching an agreement with Klim on the continuation of cooperation, ceded the rights to the hockey player to Detroit, where there was much more space under the salary cap. So, for a worthy offer to Kostin, the “red wings” came together without any problems. In the Motor City, Klim can count on some good playing time, too, perhaps with a rise above baseline, which should help the power forward who got his start in Edmonton progress. However, it’s clear that the team’s overall prospects for modern Detroit are extremely bleak.

Mikhail Maltsev – in Los Angeles

Contract Terms: One year under a bilateral agreement, cap at $775,000.

Continue to cling to the dream and Mikhail Maltsev, who previously did not sign a new contract with Colorado, entered the market. Los Angeles is probably the Russian center forward’s last chance in America, as he keeps putting off his return to the KHL, where he is in high demand for a scarce spot. But for now, instead of millions in his homeland, Maltsev chooses a minimal NHL contract at significant risk of turning the AHL around again with a farm club. And for this, Mikhail can only be respected, and he will always have time to return to Russia.

Dmitri Orlov – in “Carolina”

Contract Terms: Two years, $7.75 million caphit

The main Russian “batch” did not last long on the market. Orlova was taken by Carolina, which, although not a long-term, but a “fat” contract, was signed with the Russian defender. However, there is no doubt that Dmitry will take this money.

Grigori Denisenko – in “Florida”

Contract Terms: Two years, capped at $775,000.

An unexpected participant in the last Stanley Cup final remains in the NHL. Also, under the new deal, Denisenko officially leaves the AHL and signs a one-sided contract with Florida. Yes, minimal money, but this is unlikely to be of great importance now for Grigory, who must remember himself as a very talented and energetic hockey player.

Vladislav Namestnikov in Winnipeg

Contract Terms: Two years, $2 million capital

Namestnikov, 30, continues to search for himself in the NHL. At last season’s deadline, the forward was traded from Tampa to Winnipeg, and now Vlad has signed a new contract with the Jets. The agreement is even less monetary than the one signed a year ago with the ‘lightning’, plus the cold Winnipeg factor, but it is a guarantee that the Russian will be two more years in America. Namestnikov finds it comfortable to live there, and Vlad does not think about any exit to Russia, although his career in the NHL is not fixed.

Dmitri Kulikov – in “Florida”

Contract Terms: One year, $1 million caphit

Somewhat surprisingly, Kulikov can still find a job in the NHL. Since 2016, Dmitry has been actively jumping in different clubs, and now he has returned to Florida, where he began his career abroad. The terms of the contract are minimal, but what else can an NHL defenseman expect who, at 32, hasn’t shown what he’s really capable of?

Ilya Sorokin – extension with the islanders

Contract Terms: Eight years, $8.25 million caphit

The most powerful Russian contract of the day was signed by the one who did not even think of entering the market. Ilya Sorokin has one more season ahead of him under the current contract with a salary of $ 4 million a year, but the islanders were so impressed with the Russian’s game in the last championship that they decided now and for many years to solve the problem with the first. . club number.

One can only be happy for Ilya, who hit the jackpot in New York and joined the ranks of highly paid Russian goalies in the NHL. Now we wish Sorokin “Vezin” and Stanley Cups!

Semyon Varlamov – to the islanders

Contract Terms: Four years, $2.75 million caphit

Varlamov was about to enter the market, but soon signed a new contract with the islanders. Also, a very decent contract for a 35-year-old goalkeeper who, it seems, is destined to be Sorokin’s backup for the rest of his career. However, the management of the club can be understood: the Russian goalkeeper line has been the strongest place for the Islanders in recent years, and it is not surprising that Long Island has kept it in the first place.

Separately, we note the signing of a contract with Toronto by the 21-year-old goalkeeper Artur Akhtyamov. This is a three-year contract for a rookie, while it is already known that Akhtyamov will spend the next year on loan at his native Ak Bars.

Who else among the Russians remains on the market? The main figure is Vladimir Tarasenko. According to insider versions, the striker has many offers and chooses the best place to continue his career.
