Kirill Kaprizov, the latest Calder Trophy recipient in the National Hockey League (NHL), has received a contract offer from CSKA Moscow, KHL.

This was stated by the sports site The Athletic on Tuesday. However, he believes that Minnesota Wild, Russia’s current team, is aware of the issue and believes they can retain their services.

Earlier this month, Training Chief Executive Bill Gurin denied reports that talks with his star player were stalled. Disagreements between the two parties are related to the duration of the contract offer. The manager wants the winger to accept an eight-season contract, but the player is willing to sign a good three-year contract.

Kaprizov, 24, has been in the spotlight since joining the NHL in January. Under Wild’s colors, he scored 51 points in 56 duels. He was a major reason for the team to advance to the playoffs.

The 5’9 ‘athlete played three seasons for CSKA, drafting him into the fifth round of the 2015 te amateur auction before joining the NHL team.
