Nikita Gusev

The 31-year-old forward has not yet given up on his old dream of conquering North America. Having set a new performance record in the last KHL regular season, the hockey player hopes to make another attempt to play in the NHL and will wait for the start of the offseason abroad. At the same time, it is known that Gusev will not move to the United States at any price. Nikita will not sign the minimum contract just to leave Russia and embark on another trip abroad. Gusev wants to get a solid contract, worthy of a player of his status and class. And it’s not about money at all.

Signing such a contract will mean that they really have the hockey player and know how they will use him, and not sign with the expectation that maybe he will make it, and then we will see. If Nikita does not receive such an offer by the end of July, he will continue his career at Dynamo Moscow, where his alliance with Alexei Kudashov has already proven to everyone his worth and success. The player is not considering other options to continue his career in Russia.

Damir Zhafyarov

A few years ago, Damir was one of the hottest bites on the KHL transfer market, but lately the player’s career has stalled. After the failure in SKA, Zhafyarov could not realize his potential in Ak Bars and things did not go well for the hockey player in Avangard. In some regular season games, Damir performed quite brilliantly, but they were too one-time events.

In the playoffs, the experienced player completely disappeared, unable to score a single goal in two rounds. It is now vitally important that the 30-year-old hockey player makes the right decision regarding the new club; Otherwise, a year later Damir’s name might not be on the list of top free agents. The principle of inertia and memory of past merits will not work forever.

Nikolai Projorkin

Nikolai started last season at Sibir, but left the team in December and moved to Avangard as a result of a trade. As the player himself said: “My ambitions did not allow me to fight only for the playoffs, I want to compete for the Cup.” Omsk failed to win the trophy and Prokhorkin did not convince the team management to offer him a new contract. The 30-year-old forward managed to play for many top clubs during his KHL career, and Nikolai may now have to return to one of them to prove himself.

Alexei Makeev

The 32-year-old forward had a very good playoff season in a historic season for Avtomobilist, scoring 11 points in 17 games. But the future paths of the player and the Yekaterinburg club diverged. The Urals were interested in keeping the hockey player, but did not reach a consensus with him and his representatives on financial terms. Now the 32-year-old forward is on the free agent market, but in his case this shouldn’t last forever. Makeev had a quality playoff, showing that he can be useful in the main games of the season.

yakupov nails

Yakupov’s return to Nizhnekamsk seemed like a very beautiful story, but it did not last long. The start of the season turned out to be vigorous, but an injury ruined the impression. Yakupov has not appeared on the ice in official games since December 3, 2023, when he played in Kazan with Ak Bars. Ironically, this club is now the main contender for Nail. The parties really have a mutual desire to cooperate, but the contract has not yet been signed.
