Kirill Kaprizov
21-Year-Old Left WingLW
2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Wild selected Kaprizov in the fifth round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft (135th overall). Since then, he's spent the entirety of his time playing in the KHL, albeit for three different clubs. Kaprizov has tallied 82 points in 95 games over the past two seasons, splitting time between Ufa Salavat Yulayev and CSKA Moscow. A former captain of Russia's World Junior team, Kaprizov has been a special player in the KHL for a few years now, including being named to two consecutive KHL All-Star games. Unfortunately for Minnesota, he signed a three-year contract with CSKA Moscow almost a year ago and is unlikely to play in the NHL anytime soon. Read Past Outlooks

Wild will wait until 2020

Minnesota will not try to bring Kaprizov to the NHL until his Kontinental Hockey League contract expires in April 2020, Wild general manager Paul Fenton told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We're going to see more of a finished product, and he'll probably be able to handle the rigors of the NHL a lot better then."
ANALYSIS
Kaprizov, a 2015 fifth-round draft pick, has 10 goals and seven assists in 24 games for CSKA Moscow. There was some thought the Wild may try to bring him over earlier than 2020, but he'll remain a top prospect for the organization.
