Minnesota NHL general manager Bill Guerin is disappointed that the club has yet to sign Russian striker Kirill Kaprizov.
– I'm disappointed that we did not sign a contract with him, but we are not the only team in a similar situation. Training camp starts next week. And when it starts, we'll focus on the guys we have there. This happens all the time, but we'll just move forward, ”said Guerin, quoted by The Athletic's Michael Russo on Twitter.
Kirill Kaprizov in the 2015 NHL Draft was selected by the Minnesota Wild club in the fifth round with a total of 135th overall. The striker played 62 games for Minnesota last season and scored 54 points to win the League's Rookie Calder Trophy.
