Andrei Nazarov, head coach of the Traktor Chelyabinsk of the KHL, invited Vyacheslav Voinov and Evgeni Dadonov to get back to their mother club during an interview with Sport-Express.
Andrei Nazarov: “Both Evgeni Dadonov and Vyacheslav Voinov have a valid contract with Traktor and, according to KHL rules, we hold rights on them. I was really upset when they left for North America and didn’t get an NHL spot. We had the chance to get them back through the court’s decision, but we decided not to harm the players’ careers. But now there is such a scenario in which it would be better for them and for their development to get back to Traktor in the KHL.”
– Did you already talk to them?
Andrei Nazarov: “It’s all up to the players’ wish. Dadonov would be capable of scoring more than 20 goals a season in the KHL, just like our team’s top scorers Evgeny Skachkov and Oleg Kvasha. I see both Voinov and Dadonov as key members of Traktor.”
