The impending start of the KHL season isn't changing Tobias Rieder's immediate plans.

The unsigned restricted free agent may be toying with the idea of heading over to Europe should he fail to reach a new deal with the Arizona Coyotes, but that decision wouldn't come until after he plays at the World Cup, his agent told Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports.

Morgan has reported Rieder's camp is looking for a two-year deal worth an average annual value of $2.75 million, which the Coyotes don't appear interested in meeting at this point.

The 23-year-old scored 14 goals and added 23 assists for the Coyotes in 2015-16 while playing out the final season of his entry-level contract, and will suit up for Europe at the international tournament in Toronto this September.
