Kuznetsov would consider staying in Russia

Young forward Evgeni Kuznetsov is still planning on heading to the NHL next season and joining the Washington Capitals, but he could be swayed to stay in Russia.

In an interview SovSport, Kutznetsov confirmed his decision to leave the KHL following the 2013-14 campaign.

"After the end of the season I want to go to the NHL," he said. "And I hardly change my decision."

Kutznetsov, 21, was selected 26th overall by the Capitals in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He's played Traktor Chelyabinsk since he was drafted.

However, he did indicated that "there is" a chance he'd consider staying in the KHL.

"If I am offered a contract here for five to seven years, then I would seriously think about it," he indicated.

"Long-term contracts guarantee stability. I want to feel confident about my future."
