The Vegas Golden Knights have signed forward Vadim Shipachyov to a two-year, $9 million contract.
Shipachyov played for SKA Saint Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League during the past four seasons.
He scored 26 goals and 50 assists in 50 games last season, finishing third in the league scoring — just four points behind Ilya Kovalchuk. Shipachyov also has two KHL championships on his resume.
The 30-year-old becomes the second player on the Golden Knights, joining forward Reid Duke, a 21-year-old who signed an entry-level contract back in March.
