Russian striker “Minnesota” Kirill Kaprizov said that he was not afraid not to return to the NHL
The Russian forward of the club of the National Hockey League (NHL) “Minnesota Wild” Kirill Kaprizov answered a question about the problems when returning from Russia to the United States. His words are reported by The Ring Live.
Kaprizov stated that he was not afraid not to return to the NHL. “The first day was great. I was glad to see all the guys. Everyone is happy to be back and see each other. In general, it was a really good first day, ”said the athlete about the start of training with the team.
On August 1, it became known about the arrival of Kaprizov in the United States. Earlier, the hockey player had problems entering the country. Presumably, the athlete did not have a visa, despite a five-year contract with the NHL club.
