Vegas GM George McPhee has confirmed that the Golden Knights have had discussions with Evgeny Dadonov.
That confirms a previous report that Vegas was interested in signing Dadonov. He scored 30 goals and 66 points in 53 games with the KHL's St. Petersburg SKA this season. Signing with Vegas would keep him with Vadim Shipachev, who was his linemate with St. Petersburg in 2016-17. All that being said, McPhee isn't sure if Dadonov will end up with Vegas or even move to North America. May 5 - 6:38 PM

The Vegas Golden Knights are reportedly interested in signing the KHL's Evgeny Dadonov.

Dadonov had 30 goals and 66 points in 53 games with the KHL's St. Petersburg SKA in 2016-17. The Golden Knights have already signed his KHL linemate, Vadim Shipachev, so the expansion team could be led by a duo very familiar with each other next season. It makes sense for Las Vegas. Although they'll get some good talent through the expansion draft, the Golden Knights won't have much in the way of players that have experience working with each other, so this would help them gain with some initial line chemistry. Plus if your ever going to roll the dice on a pair of KHL stars that may or may not translate well to the NHL, then an expansion season when expectations are low is the time to do it.

Evgenii Dadonov comes into Team Russia's quarter finals match with Team Sweden tied for the tournament lead in points at the World Hockey Championship.

Dadonov, who is now 26 years old and was picked by Carolina 71st overall in 2007, has four goals and 11 points through Russia's first seven games. He also sits tied with Sweden's Oliver Ekman-Larsson as well.

Evgenii Dadonov recorded two goals and added one assist in a 4-2 victory for HC Donbass versus Dinamo Riga.

He played in 15 games with the Florida Panthers in 2011-12, but spent the majority of his time in the minors where he skated in 55 contests between San Antonio and Charlotte. Dadonov signed on with the KHL this past summer, so he's unlikely to return even when the lockout is over.

The Carolina Hurricanes received Evgenii Dadonov and A.J. Jenks from the Florida Panthers on Wednesday in exchange for Jonathan Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom.

The 22-year-old Dadonov has the most NHL experience of the players involved in the deal. In 55 games with the Panthers, he has registered 10 goals and 10 assists. After a poor showing at training camp, he started the 2011-12 campaign in the minors but he does have some offensive talent. Dadonov should get an opportunity with the Hurricanes before the end of the year and don't be shocked if he plays alongside Eric Staal when he is called up.

Dadonov had 17 points in 36 games last season, but he has spent the majority of the season in the minors. He has only two goals in 12 games for the Panthers on the season. Dadonov should get another stint with the big club before the end of the 2011-12 campaign.

Evgeny Dadonov was sent to the AHL because he wasn't going to get any playing time with the Panthers in the near future, according to Panthers coach Kevin Dineen.

"I look at Dads as a very effective player, he plays a lot of different roles in the lineup, but right now he wasn’t in the lineup; he can play on a skill line, a checking line but he needs to play," Dineen said. "I didn’t forsee him getting any playing time here this weekend and felt he should get to San Antonio, play some games. That’s what we need him to do. He didn’t have a great training camp, but we still respect his skill and talent that he has, and he needs to play some games early and help us as the season progresses." Dadonov should get another stint with the Florida Panthers before the end of the 2011-12 campaign.

Evgeny Dadonov has been assigned to AHL San Antonio.

He watched Florida's first two games of the season as a healthy scratch, so it will be better for him to get into some game action in the minors. Dadonov has offensive potential and he should be back in the NHL this year if injuries occur.
Thu, Oct 13, 2011 07:03:00 AM

Evgeny Dadonov will not dress for Saturday's game against the Islanders.

This is a disappointment for Dadonov, who struggled to make the team out of training camp. The young winger looked competent towards the end of last season so we think he'll get an opportunity to play regularly later this season.

Evgeny Dadonov will remain on Florida's roster for the opening of the 2011-12 season.

However, he may sit as a healthy scratch in Saturday night's first contest against the New York Islanders. Coach Kevin Dineen wants to see more consistency in the 22-year-old's game, but he does view him as a versatile player.

Evgeni Dadonov is believed to be competing with Tim Kennedy for Florida's final spot at forward.

Kennedy was sporting a cut forehead after getting hit from behind by Dallas' Ryan Garbutt in exhibition action on Tuesday. Dadonov can probably bring more offense to the table, but it will be an interesting choice for the organization.
