Golden Knights ink Gusev to 1-year contract

The Vegas Golden Knights officially signed reigning KHL MVP Nikita Gusev to a one-year, entry-level deal, the club announced Sunday.

Gusev is expected to report to the Golden Knights and practice with the team on Monday.

The 26-year-old forward led the KHL with 82 points for SKA St. Petersburg in the regular season, adding 19 points in 18 playoff contests this spring. He also starred at the Olympics, racking up 12 points in six games to help the Olympic Athletes from Russia capture gold.

The Golden Knights acquired Gusev's rights from the Tampa Bay Lightning in a trade during the 2017 expansion draft.
