Kirill Kaprizov, a former forward of the Ufa hockey club Salavat Yulaev, hit the list of the most promising Russians younger than 30 years. The rating was made by the Russian Forbes.
“At the Olympics-2018 Kaprizov was the youngest player in the Russian national team and returned home as one of the main heroes of the final: he scored the winning goal in overtime. In CSKA, where Kirill has been playing since 2017, he also scores a lot — in the season 2018/2019 he became the best striker of the KHL regular championship (30 goals), and then helped the team win the Gagarin Cup for the first time, ”the compilers of the rating write.
The 22-year-old striker of Moscow CSKA has the contract valid for another season. According to representatives of Forbes, the leadership of the current holder of the Gagarin Cup will retain a place in its composition for Kaprizov, despite the fact that he is waited for in the NHL — “Minnesota Wild” selected him already at the 2015 draft.
Note that now Kirill Kaprizov competes for the Russian team at the World Championships in Slovakia. For the first time at the international tournament, the hockey player distinguished himself in a match with Sweden on May 21 (7: 4).
Also, the list of the most promising Russians younger than 30 years old included singer Monetochka, blogger, and TV presenter Nastya Ivleeva, football player Alexander Golovin, director Kantemir Balagov.
