Nikita Gusev
27-Year-Old Left WingLW
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gusev is ready for a new challenge with the Devils having dominated the KHL competition as a four-time All-Star and two-time winner of the Gagarin Cup in his native Russia. The right-shot forward with slick hands and supreme passing ability notched 17 goals and a league-high 65 assists for SKA Saint Petersburg in 2018-19. Obviously floored by the youngster's potential, GM Ray Shero gave Vegas a pair of early-round draft picks in order to acquire Gusev and promptly put him on the books for two years and $9 million. Early signs point to him comprising the second line with No. 1 overall pick Jack Hughes and a bruising scoring winger in Wayne Simmonds. Read Past Outlooks
