Golden Knights in talks with KHL's Evgeny Dadonov


Vegas Golden Knights general manager Goerge McPhee is hopeful Vadim Shipachyov isn't the only player his club can lure from the KHL.

After the team inked Shipachyov to a two-year, $9-million deal on Thursday, McPhee confirmed on Friday that the Golden Knights are in talks with fellow KHL forward Evgeny Dadonov, according to Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press.

Despite the talks, McPhee admitted he was still unsure if Vegas would be able to sign Dadonov to a deal or if the 28-year-old was even going to come to the NHL.

Dadonov is coming off his third season with St. Petersburg - the same club Shipachyov played for - where he finished fourth in the league in goals and fifth in points with 30 and 66, respectively.

Dadonov was originally drafted in the third round in 2007 by the Florida Panthers where he played 55 games over three years before returning to the KHL during the 2012-13 campaign.
