Lands tryout with Maple Leafs
LWToronto Maple Leafs
September 17, 2021
Gusev agreed to a professional tryout agreement with Toronto on Friday, per CapFriendly.
ANALYSIS
Gusev racked up 13 goals and 44 points in 66 games as a 27-year-old rookie during the 2019-20 campaign. However, he totaled just four goals and 10 points in 33 appearances with Florida and New Jersey last season. The 5-foot-9 winger was a force in the KHL before coming to North America, scoring 63 goals and 215 points in his final three seasons with KHL St. Petersburg. Gusev could add some scoring depth to the Maple Leafs' bottom six if he secures a roster spot after training camp.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
After dominating the KHL for several seasons in which he averaged over a point per game, Gusev was able to bring his scoring touch with him to North America, racking up 13 goals and 31 helpers in 66 appearances for New Jersey last season. The dynamic winger recorded 15 of those 44 points with the man advantage, a role he should continue to fill going forward. It wouldn't be shocking to see Guzev challenge for 60 points during the upcoming campaign, which would make him a rock-solid pickup in the middle rounds of redraft formats.
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.
