Canucks: RFA winger Vitali Kravtsov reportedly signing two-year KHL deal
The Vancouver Canucks rolled out the red carpet for Vitali Kravtsov.
They were going to give the Russian winger an opportunity to rejuvenate his stagnant NHL career following a Feb. 25 trade with the New York Rangers.
He had but six points (3-3) in 28 games with the Blueshirts and their first-round pick in 2019 — ninth overall — clearly needed a change of scenery.
The Canucks provided an additional comfort factor with his world junior hockey tournament teammate Vasily Podkolzin on the roster, along with countrymen Andrei Kuzmenko and the rehabbing Ilya Mikheyev also in the fold.
What could go wrong? How about everything in a failed roll of the dice?
