Daniil Tarasov Wikipedia
Daniil Vladimirovich Tarasov (born June 20, 1991) is a Russian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing with HC Dynamo Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).
Undrafted, on June 1, 2012, the Worcester Sharks signed Tarasov to a standard American Hockey League contract for the 2012–13 season to become the first ever Russian-born player to skate for the Worcester Sharks. During his rookie AHL campaign Tarasov scored 14 goals and 14 assists for 28 points in 43 AHL games played, and he also skated in 17 games with the San Francisco Bulls of the ECHL. On April 2, 2013, Tarasov was rewarded for his strong play when the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League signed Tarasov to a two-year contract.
As a restricted free agent with his NHL rights still owned by the Sharks, Tarasov opted to leave North America and sign a lucrative two-year contract to return home with Russian club, HC Dynamo Moscow of the KHL on July 17, 2015.
