As Eronko writes on sport-express.ru, the club from Siberia has offered Andrighetto a basic salary of 90 million rubles, which is roughly CHF 1.4 million, with additional bonuses. With the Colorado Avalanche, Andrighetto earned $1.55 million last season with an average of $1.4 million per year on his two-year contract.

In spite of the lucrative offer, Andrighetto is likely to remain in North America, Eronko writes. The 26-year-old wants to wait if a new opportunity will present itself in the NHL. Until June 24, the Avalanche can still make him a qualifying offer. If not, he will be allowed to negotiate with any team from the NHL, as he would become an unrestricted free agent.
