Earlier today, news broke that Capitals GM Brian MacLellan was in Russia to talk with talented goaltending prospect Ilya Samosonov about a contract for next season.
We can now 100% confirm that GMBM is currently on another continent because the two took a photo together. And Samsonov posted it on his Instagram.
Рад был встрече!!!🏒👍🇺🇸спасибо за визит и отличный ужин!😊

“So happy to meet you!” Samsonov wrote as translated by Graham Dumas. “Thank you for the visit and the lovely dinner!”
I’m feeling very good about Ilya’s chances of being in a Caps sweater during training camp next season.
