BREAKING: Oilers Prospect Sues His Own Team

Published December 25, 2023 at 3:03 PM

An Edmonton Oilers prospect is suing his own team to get out of his current contract after being treated unfairly by the coach.

Nikita Yevseyev's Contract Challenge

In a surprising move, Nikita Yevseyev, a prospect for the Edmonton Oilers, is taking legal action to end his current contract in the KHL.

#AkBars Damir Zhafyarov and #LetsGoOilers prospect Nikita Yevseyev's agent Shumi Babaev has filed a lawsuit with the #KHL to terminate their contracts citing discrimination by the coach.

Yevseyev, a 6th-round pick in the 2022 draft, played in both the KHL and the VHL this season, accumulating 9 points in 40 total games. If the lawsuit succeeds, Yevseyev might continue his career in Russia with a different team or make an earlier move to North America than expected.

Stay tuned for more details.
