  • Nail Yakupov: Departs for KHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/3/18) Yakupov is set to sign a two-year contract with SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.

    Yakupov has chosen to leave hockey's highest level after failing to live up to his 2012 first overall selection with Edmonton. Throughout six seasons, he averaged only 0.39 points per game and accumulated a dreadful minus-89 rating. While Yakupov's first NHL stint was largely unsuccessful, he is still only 24 years old. It's possible he could rediscover his game oversees and contribute to an NHL roster at some point down the road.

    Nail Yakupov: Not retained by Avalanche

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/25/18) Yakupov wasn't tendered a qualifying offer Monday and will now become an unrestricted free agent, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

    Playing for his third team in as many seasons, Yakupov saw a decent amount action for the Avalanche, tallying nine goals and seven assists across 58 games. However, he didn't participate in a single playoff game and is now looking to join a new team when free agency opens July 1 after failing to get a qualifying offer. The former first overall pick should find a handful of suitors on the open market.

    Avalanche's Nail Yakupov: Rides pine in playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/18) Yakupov watched all six games of the Avs' first-round series against the Predators from the press box.

    On his third club in as many seasons, Yakupov failed to impress, as he served as a healthy scratch in 24 of the final 32 contests of the year. When he was in the lineup, the winger garnered a meager 16 points and 94 shots. Selected first overall in the 2012 NHL Draft, the Russian would certainly be in the conversation for the biggest bust in NHL history. A restricted free agent this offseason, the 24-year-old could find himself without an offer from Colorado.

    Avalanche's Nail Yakupov: Watches fourth straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/3/18) Yakupov was a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game during Friday's 7-1 win over Minnesota.

    Considering the 24-year-old winger can't crack the lineup consistently or land a prominent role when dressing, there aren't many fantasy settings where Yakupov warrants a roster spot. He might receive another fresh start next fall, but it also wouldn't be a shock if his NHL career is over after this season.

    Avalanche's Nail Yakupov: Logs just 9:10 in win over Sharks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/18) Yakupov recorded one shot through 9:10 of ice time (2:09 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 5-3 win over San Jose.

    It's easy to poke fun at Yakupov because he was the first overall selection from the 2012 draft, and he's definitely failed to live up to expectations to this point of his career. Slotting into a depth role hurts his scoring potential, so while his offensive numbers have been disappointing this year (eight goals and 13 points through 38 games), it's not a great fantasy setup, either. It's probably safe to continue fading Yakupov in the majority of settings at this stage of the game.
