Nikita Zaitsev staying in KHL next season

Despite interest from the Flyers and other NHL teams, KHL defenseman Nikita Zaitsev (23) will be playing in Russia next year.

It is still Nikita’s intention to play in North America eventually though, and you can expect Philly to be ready when his contract expires next season.

The Flyers have been interested in Zaitsev since he was 20 years old, but other clubs are now too.

Nikita Zaitsev had 32 points (12 G, 20 A) and a cool +27 in 57 games this season with CSKA Moscow.
