Kirill Kaprizov back in U.S., will return to Minnesota on Tuesday


After a tense couple of weeks, Minnesota Wild star Kirill Kaprizov has left Russia and is back in the United States, sources told The Athletic’s Michael Russo.

Kaprizov departed from his home nation late last week by way of Turkey and touched down in New York City on the weekend. He’s expected to arrive in Minnesota on Tuesday.

Reports emerged in July that the winger was denied entry to the U.S. twice. He first tried to enter the U.S. from Dubai but was turned away.
