Vegas Golden Knights Sign Russia's Shipachyov to Two-Year Deal

The Vegas Golden Knights made a pretty big splash by signing KHL star Vadim Shipachyov to a two-year, $9 million deal on Thursday. The 30-year-old has become an elite scorer in the KHL. He put up 76 points in 50 games this season for St. Petersburg SKA (good for third in the KHL scoring race), and another 20 points in 17 playoff games.

The 6'1", 190-pound forward is a native of Cherepovets, Russia.
