Holy mother of god…The front runner for the Calder Trophy as well as one of the breakout stars of the season may be done in the NHL after just one season.
As you can see according to Kevin Weekes, talks between Kaprizov and the Minnesota Wild aren’t going to well. This very well could just be a negotiation tactic but at the same time we’ve seen guys leave the NHL for the KHL before so it wouldn’t be all that shocking. This is a major development and makes the Minnesota Wild off-season a lot more interesting going forward.
Kaprizov had 27 goals and 24 assist in 55 games this past season.
