Yakupov is set to sign a two-year contract with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.
Yakupov has chosen to leave hockey's highest level after failing to live up to his 2012 first overall selection with Edmonton. Throughout six seasons, he averaged only 0.39 points per game and accumulated a dreadful minus-89 rating. While Yakupov's first NHL stint was largely unsuccessful, he is still only 24 years old. It's possible he could rediscover his game oversees and contribute to an NHL roster at some point down the road. Jul 03 12:36 pm (EST)
- Yakupov wasn't tendered a qualifying offer Monday and will now become an unrestricted free agent, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
- Yakupov watched all six games of the Avs' first-round series against the Predators.
- Yakupov was a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game during Friday's 7-1 win over Minnesota. All Nail Yakupov News
