Last week, Evgeny Kuznetsov reiterated that he planned to join the Washington Capitals. He said that no amount of money would keep him in the KHL. Now, we have the strongest proof yet that the 21-year-old forward intends to cross the pond. Just before 9 PM our time, Kuznetsov tweeted a photo of an email he received from Ashley Weber, an assistant to Capitals general manager George McPhee. In it Weber attached letters supporting the visa applications of Kuznetsov and his wife Nastia. Kuzya captioned the tweet in Russian, “This is a very important letter!” He has since deleted the post.
Finally, it appears Zhenya will finally be joining the Caps and trying himself in the NHL. The next question is when.
