Still unemployed. 10 Russian hockey players are out of contract in the NHL

Date: June 17, 2024 Time: 03:28:48

On July 1, the NHL transfer market was officially opened, and the first days of its work traditionally brought many offers, including those with the participation of Russian hockey players.

But not all of our free agents have already decided their future. We are talking about those Russians who are still running out of contracts.

Vladimir Tarasenko

Stats last season: St. Louis/Rangers, 69 games, 50 (18+32) points and 7 games, 4 (3+1) playoff points

Russian Tank is, of course, the main Russian hockey player who is now without a contract. Last season, Tarasenko escaped restructuring-hit St. Louis, moving to Broadway with an old friend and partner in the Panarin gold youth team, but in the end, the Rangers were unlikely to be happier with this. agreement, although specifically to Tarasenko in a failed play-off just a few questions.

Now Vladimir has entered the market, and the likelihood of the Rangers concluding a new contract with the Russian is slim – the Blueshirts simply don’t fit under the salary cap. Tarasenko claims a contract with a salary cap of $ 6-6.5 million, and it is unreasonable to discount the club at a time when the hockey player has a chance to conclude, probably, the last “fat” deal in his career. . In addition, the demand for Vladimir is great – rumors send him to Pittsburgh, Colorado, Ottawa, but this is probably not a complete list of contenders for the Russian. He is now choosing and calmly weighing different options, but this epic is unlikely to last for a long time.

Ilya Samsonov

Stats from last season: Toronto, 42 games, 27 wins, 2.33 ROI and 91.9% OB; 9 games, 4 wins, 3.13 KN and 89.8% OB in playoffs

The goalkeeper made a perfect start in Toronto after the tour in Washington, gave away a very strong season, at the end of which he became the first number of the “leaves” and won the affection of the demanding fans. Furthermore, it was with Samsonov at the gate that the Canadian club eliminated Tampa from the playoffs, passing the first round of the Stanley Cup for the first time in many years.

The end turned out to be a blur for Samsonov due to a stupid injury, but Ilya definitely impressed the Leaf bosses, who had already made a qualifying offer to their restricted free agent. The terms of it are unknown, but so far Samsonov has not accepted it, which suggests some discrepancies and even a possible arbitration in the future. However, it is unlikely that the Russian and Toronto will not be able to agree in the near future.

Semyon Der-Arguchintsev

Stats from last season: Toronto, 1 game, 0 points

Der-Arguchintsev is a specific AHL player who until now has only been allowed to debut in the best league in the world. The Russian centre-forward is in high demand at home, although the rights to Semyon belong to Torpedo.

Toronto has already made a qualifying offer to Der-Arguchintsev, but this does not mean at all that he will stay abroad. The prospects of playing in the “sheets” in the near future are minimal, while in Russia the 22-year-old striker will receive game practice, a good contract and the opportunity to express himself in order to go to America next time. with a stronger position.

Pavel Dorofeev

Stats last season: Vegas, 18 games, 9 (7+2) points

Dorofeev took his chance late in the season by showing himself in the upper ranks of Las Vegas, but it’s almost impossible to win competition from someone in the top 6 NHL champions in the long run, and Pavel is clearly not suited to play in the background. . The Gold Knights have qualified the Russian, but the Russian is in no hurry to accept it. Perhaps Dorofeev adequately assesses his chances and does not see a real chance to gain a foothold in the main team of the NHL champion. In addition, he always has the option to return to the KHL, where the striker’s rights belong to Traktor.

Alexey Toropchenko

Stats last season: St. Louis, 69 games, 19 (10+9) points

The restructuring and sale of previous leaders in St. Louis has clearly played into the hands of Toropchenko, who has established himself on the Blues as a strong power forward out of the lower links. It is very likely that the Russian will become an important part of the new team of “musicians”, and Toropchenko has already qualified in St. Louis. True, until Alexei did not accept it.

Denis Guryanov

Stats last season: Dallas/Montreal, 66 games, 17 (7+10) points

Guryanov’s NHL career is going downhill. After several good seasons in Dallas, Denis deteriorated sharply, which could be due to some personal problems: at the end of December, the Stars even had to send Guryanov on indefinite leave for family reasons.

This was followed by a trade to Montreal, where Guryanov briefly came to his senses, but at the end of the season he disbanded again. Now that the Canadians have not qualified Denis, he has entered the free agent market, where he, despite everything, has options to sign a short-term contract with a low salary. The alternate airfield is a return to the KHL, where Guryanova has always wanted to get CSKA, which has the rights to the player.

Evgeny Svechnikov

Statistics last season: San José, 59 games, 14 (8+6) points

Evgeny Svechnikov has been unsuccessfully trying to gain a foothold in the NHL for a long time, changing teams, but the decisive season has not yet come. Svechnikov Sr. spent the last championship at his usual level in San Jose, and as a result, the Sharks did not make a qualifying offer for the striker.

In recent years, Evgeny has desperately refused to return to Russia, signing even minimal contracts with clubs that do not claim anything. But now, perhaps, in the NHL market for Svechnikov there will not even be such options. In the KHL, the rights to Svechnikov belong to Ak Bars.

Dmitry Samorukov

Stats last season: St. Louis, 2 games, 0 points

Samorukov in recent seasons looked good at the St. Louis estate, but failed to gain a foothold in the Blues, and now the “musicians” have not begun to offer titles to the Russian defender. Dmitry became the NSA, and it seems a logical choice for him to return to the KHL, where CSKA awaits him, but according to some reports, Samorukov, due to family reasons, will be delayed in the United States for at least another year. .

Ivan Prosvetov

Stats from last season: Arizona, 7 games, 4 wins, 3.98 ROI and 88% RPG

A year ago, Prosvetov refused to return to CSKA and chose to fight for a place in the Arizona base, but in the past season, Ivan has not made much progress in this effort, as can be seen from the statistics. The army team is also not waiting for the goalkeeper, but Arizona offered Prosvetov a rating, and there is no doubt that Ivan will accept it and again try to impose competition on Weimelka and Ingram.

Egor Sokolov

Statistics last season: Ottawa, 5 games, 2 (1+1) points

Sokolov had a great season in the AHL, but Ottawa didn’t seem to notice. The NHL outsider provided the Russian with only five matches at the base, and now he has not made a qualifying offer to Yegor. Perhaps it would be even better for him to get out of the “senators” system, while Sokolov also has the option of returning to Russia, where Avtomobilist owns the rights to him. However, the top 6 Urals are packed and Sokolov needs playing practice in creative units.
