July 13, 2020
Kaprizov signed a two-year, entry level contract with the Wild on Monday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He won't be eligible to play until the 2020-21 season.
ANALYSIS
Kaprizov will be a restricted free agent until 2024 under the contract. Kaprizov led the Kontinental Hockey League with 33 goals in 57 games this season and should be an immediate impact player. While he's not eligible to play with the Wild for the 2019-20 playoffs, the team is hopeful he can join for this month's training camp and then travel to Canada with his teammates.

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.
