Nikita Gusev had 1 goal and 1 assist in just 11:56 of ice time in SKA St. Petersburg's 3-2 win over Dynamo Moscow. Dynamo got a goal from ex-Lightning forward Martins Karsums in defeat. According to the KHL website, Gusev's contract expires on 4/30/16, after which the Lightning will be free to attempt to sign him if he does not sign an extension beforehand. In recent interviews, Gusev cited his openness to coming to North America to join his friend and former CSKA Jr. teammate Nikita Kucherov. However, big market SKA St. Petersburg will have the resources to put together a compelling financial package for Gusev to stay put if they want to retain him, so stay tuned.
