June 2021 – The LA Kings have entered into a one-year entry-level deal with 25-year-old Russian Tkachyov. This will be considered his second NHL-level shot, as the undrafted winger took reps at training camp as a member of the Edmonton Oilers in 2015. However, due to his undrafted status , he was deemed ineligible to play. Although slightly undersized, he is considered a top talent, having led the production of SKA St. Peterburg for the past two seasons, while also posting a sizable seven in the KHL. With 123 of his 185 total KHL points in the assists column, he is considered an elusive playmaker by trade. However, the remaining aspects of his game are not to be put to sleep. Considering the cost, this is a very low risk ticket, with a high reward attached to it. If he fails to make it into the starting lineup, it is understood that he will return to the KHL for the 2021-22 campaign. The potential for expansion or recession is very real. Dave hall
