Nikita Gusev won't be suiting up in the NHL anytime soon, as the 25-year-old winger re-signed with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL on Friday, according to the club.

Gusev's NHL rights are owned by the Vegas Golden Knights, but, following the new two-year pact, it appears as though Gusev is at least a year or two away from hitting the Strip.

In 57 regular-season games for SKA last season, the former seventh-round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning tallied 24 goals while adding 47 assists - good enough for fourth in league scoring.
