2019 Fantasy Outlook
Gusev is ready for a new challenge with the Devils having dominated the KHL competition as a four-time All-Star and two-time winner of the Gagarin Cup in his native Russia. The right-shot forward with slick hands and supreme passing ability notched 17 goals and a league-high 65 assists for SKA Saint Petersburg in 2018-19. Obviously floored by the youngster's potential, GM Ray Shero gave Vegas a pair of early-round draft picks in order to acquire Gusev and promptly put him on the books for two years and $9 million. Early signs point to him comprising the second line with No. 1 overall pick Jack Hughes and a bruising scoring winger in Wayne Simmonds. Read Past Outlooks

March 1, 2020
Gusev posted a power-play helper in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.
ANALYSIS
Gusev had the secondary helper on Pavel Zacha's second-period tally. During his six-game point streak, Gusev has two goals and seven helpers. The 27-year-old Russian is at 42 points (14 on the power play), 149 shots and a minus-13 rating in 62 contests. If fantasy owners can overlook his lack of physicality, Gusev's offense is a solid addition to virtual squads.
