The Vancouver Canucks have won the Andrei Kuzmenko sweepstakes.

The 26-year-old will be signing with the Canucks after previously narrowing his list of NHL teams to four finalists.

Kuzmenko posted a picture of the decision on his Instagram page.

Kuzmenko is coming off a breakout season in the KHL, in which he posted a career-high 20 goals and 53 points in 45 games. He kept up his point-per-game pace in the playoffs with seven goals and seven assists in 14 playoff games. 

A native of Yakutsk, Russia, Kuzmenko was never drafted. He played for Russia at the 2016 World Juniors, going without a point in seven games.

He has spent the past eight seasons in the KHL and has been with SKA St. Petersburg since making the move from CSKA Moscow in 2018.
