Sergei Plotnikov from the KHL signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The 25 year old winger is coming to the NHL next season. The KHL star was forced to pay a large sum of money to transer to the NHL. General manager Jim Rutherford said:

Without us asking, he’s already talking about getting over here early. Some of the things he’s done speak volumes of his character. He footed the $500,000 bill to terminate his Kontinental Hockey League contract. Not many guys would do that.

Plotnikov scored 36 points in 56 games in the KHL last season. He will probably play on a line with fellow Russian, Evgeni Malkin.
