Sportsnet’s Wiebe: Evgeny Svechnikov to sign Pro Tryout with Winnipeg


Hearing that mutual interest between #NHLJets and UFA F Evgeny Svechnikov has led initially to a Pro Tryout Offer. Svechnikov had a shoulder issue cleaned up in May and the expectation is he should be cleared to play around training camp. Once healthy, look for a two-way deal.— Ken Wiebe (@WiebesWorld) August 20, 2021

Update: Here’s more from MLive’s Ansar Khan:

Evgeny Svechnikov, the Detroit Red Wings’ top pick in the 2015 draft, has signed a one-year AHL contract with the Manitoba Moose.

Svechnikov, 24, will attend Winnipeg Jets training camp on a tryout in an effort to earn a two-way NHL contact.

The Red Wings last month declined to tender a qualifying offer to Svechnikov, making him an unrestricted free agent. They had expressed interest in possibly signing him to a two-way contract.


#MBMoose announce it’s a one year, #AHL deal with F Evgeny Svechnikov – at least for the time being. The 19th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft has accepted a PTO to attend #NHLJets training camp and he will be given an opportunity to earn a two-way NHL deal when healthy.— Ken Wiebe (@WiebesWorld) August 20, 2021

The #AHL salary for F Evgeny Svechnikov is $215,000. If he can earn an NHL deal with #NHLJets one would expect the AAV will be close to the league minimum, given the salary cap gymnastics that will be required this season.— Ken Wiebe (@WiebesWorld) August 20, 2021

Thank you Geno for the many smiles and memories! Good luck in Manitoba.— Grand Rapids Griffins (@griffinshockey) August 23, 2021
