Arizona GM Don Maloney says that Viktor Tikhonov wants to return to the NHL.
The Coyotes own his NHL rights but Tikhonov is eligible to become a UFA on July 1. He was drafted 28th overall in the 2008 Draft but has played only in the KHL since the start of the 2011-12 season. "His game has grown," Maloney said. "Certainly, he's a more mature player. Obviously, he's had really good success over in Russia and the World Championship. He was an MVP at the World Championship last year, so his game has grown. I think he's another player you have to look at in regards to some of the holes we have and say, 'Can he come in and fill a role for us and a hole for us and what's the cost? He's not coming back here on a two-way, entry-level contact. That would make it easy if he was. He's been well-paid and deserves to be well-paid and will probably look to be well-paid here. It's still too early to say whether we can entice him back or not, but we're certainly interested in talking to him." He has eight goals and 24 points in 45 games this season. Feb 14 - 7:39 AM
