“KP Sport” – about the latest news on the KHL transfer market.

Avangard will give Tkachev more than 600 million rubles. For five years under contract!

On the evening of May 28, the media reported news about Vladimir Tkachev. According to internal sources of SE, the highest paid hockey player in the KHL became interested in one of the NHL clubs and decided to leave Russia. According to the publication, the contract between Tkachev and Avangard included a clause on the possibility of early termination of the contract if an offer was received from abroad.

But on May 29, the soap opera was over. Omsk avoided losing its 28-year-old student by signing a new five-year deal with him. “We finally closed the subject of leaving for North America. Vladimir really wants to win the Gagarin Cup in the uniform of Avangard and will do everything possible for this,” commented Falcons general director Semyon Chistyakov about the agreement.

By the way, about the deal. 120 million rubles guaranteed salary every year! 30 million bonuses! And also bonuses for finishing among the top 3 scorers and winning the championship, which are not taken into account in the salary cap. These data were published by Sport Express journalist Mikhail Zislis. Total – 600 million rubles of net profit over five years, excluding bonus part.

Well, why do you need this NHL?

The topic of Radulov at Dynamo is closed. Is this all due to the agent’s requests?

The double world champion has been unemployed for almost a month. All rumors about extending the contract with Ak Bars subsided, and the option of employment in the capital’s Dynamo was finally rejected. As Championship reports, the 37-year-old veteran was not satisfied with the Muscovites’ offer of 60 million rubles in annual salary + 20 million in bonuses.

Journalist Ivan Bogun has completely different information. On his tg channel he wrote that the club itself was the first to leave the negotiations. Apparently, the parties had already agreed to sign a one-year contract for 50 million rubles + 5 million bonuses, but a week later the player’s agent demanded that the Muscovites increase the bonus part by 6 times. The management decided to save money by trading Anton Slepyshev from CSKA.

Ruzicka is at Spartak. In winter he was kicked out of the NHL because of white powder

The regiment of scandalous legionnaires has arrived: Slovak Adam Ruzicka has reached a one-year deal with Spartak. He has 4 seasons in Calgary, 3 games for Arizona and was released from the Coyotes in February of this year. All because of a video that Ruzicka accidentally posted on her social networks, in which streaks of white powder were clearly visible.

If we move only to hockey, the transfer is impressive: Adam has powerful dimensions (194 cm, 98 kg) and great prospects of joining the center of the first line to help Nikolai Goldobin. And if you remember the story of winter… It’s better not to remember it. In addition, the 25-year-old striker now has a close relative: his wife’s brother (and part-time defender of the red and whites) Michal Czajkowski. You can’t go crazy with something like that.

In Vladivostok directly from the World Cup: “The Admiral” was reinforced by a Slovak defender

Just a week ago, Martin Grman defended the colors of Slovakia at the 2024 World Cup. Even Stefan Da Costa eliminated “1+1” in the match against the French. But from today his international career stopped: the 27-year-old defender ignored the ban on all Kahael players in the Slovak national team and became a newcomer “Admiral”.

The duration of his contract is one year and his salary is around 30 million rubles. And since in the 2017/18 season Grman already played in the KHL as part of Slovan Bratislava, the process of adapting to the league should be quick and painless. Maybe.

Tretyak goes to Togliatti. There is a salary of 20 million and serious competition

3 wins in 17 matches last season, 19 in 106 matches for the club. This is how Maxim Tretiak spent his four years in Sochi ingloriously. The southerners did not renew the goalkeeper, and the hockey player himself began to actively search for a new team. At one point he even almost ended up at SY, but the Ufa team decided to refuse the deal.

Today, the 27-year-old goalkeeper has signed a one-year contract with Lada. Immediately after signing, Shumi Babaev spoke about the progress of the negotiations and remembered his client’s “ex”: “It was not difficult to agree with Lada, in fact, his application was taken into consideration. I’m very happy that he ended up in a good organization. Here he will be able to reveal his full potential. I think everyone has seen the kind of games he has played. I hope and I am convinced that there will be more confidence in him here and that it will be easier than in Sochi.

In Togliatti, the grandson of the legendary Vladislav Tretyak will receive a salary of 20 million rubles. Metaratings reports this. And he will also receive a strong competitor for a starting place in the person of the club’s richest player – Vladislav Podyapolsky.

Belarusian-Kazakh exchange and a pinch of Maple Leafs in Vityaz

Dynamo Minsk decided to part ways with Vladislav Kodola and exchanged the striker for Barys. Christian Henkel is moving in the opposite direction. A year ago, the 28-year-old defender came close to winning the Gagarin Cup with Ak Bars, after which he had an unimpressive season in Astana (1+8 in 56 matches). At the same time, during last May’s tour, Henkel was captain of the Belarusian national team and he took his first steps in the KHL as part of the “Zubrov”.

“Vityaz” was reinforced by the winner of the 2015 World Cup and the 21st pick of the 2013 NHL draft – Frédéric Gauthier. Certainly, for Toronto, who drafted him, the Canadian only scored 13 goals in 168 matches. And things did not work out for the striker against other teams in the league (“Arizona”, “New Jersey”) – not a single point in total in 10 meetings.

Gauthier joins the “Bogatyrs” from the Swiss “Anjoie”, for whom he scored 18 points in 44 matches in the last championship. Whether he becomes a passenger or not, time will tell. However, Vityaz knows how to buy quality foreign players. Scott Wislon, who received an invitation from champion Metallurg, is proof of this.

Overtime Day and NHL Bullpen in Kunlun

Neftekhimik almost took Semyon Kizimov, but Avtomobilist repeated the offer from Nizhnekamsk and extended the contract with the striker for two years. But the Wolves retained Philip Dolganov: the goalkeeper, who stopped 91.5% of shots last season, signed a one-year deal with the club on increased terms.

There is also an extension to Salavat. The Ufa team has re-signed an agreement with Nikita Zorkin until the end of the 2025/26 championship. According to journalist Arthur Khairullin, the 23-year-old defender will earn 46 million rubles: 22 million next season, 24 in a year.

And Kunlun achieves two market victories at once. First, the “dragons” extended the agreement with one of the best blocking defenders in the league, American Doyle Somerby. Second, Red Star acquired right-handed forward Adam Cleldening. The guy lives to the rhythm of perpetual motion: 97 games in the NHL for 7 different clubs (Chicago, Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Edmonton, Rangers, Arizona, Columbus), two gold medals at the World Junior Championship as a member of the American national team. , bronze at the 2021 senior world championship, a season in the Finnish Ilves.

So I arrived in Mytishchi. Hurry up and see!
