The Los Angeles Kings have reached a one-year, $832,500 deal with KHL forward Vladimir Tkachyov.
Tkachyov, 25, scored a team-high 38 points (11 goals, 27 assists) in 45 games for SKA St. Petersburg this season, adding a goal and seven assists in 11 playoff contests.
The Kings missed the playoffs for the third straight season after finishing the 2020-21 regular season with a 21-28-7 record.
Tkachyov (named Vladimir Tkachev at the time) had previously signed with the Edmonton Oilers in 2014, but the contract was disqualified by the NHL as he had not yet spent a full season playing in North America.
Tkachyov spent seven seasons in the KHL, racking up 62 goals and 123 assists over 254 career games.
