Firstov, a second-round pick in 2019, spent the recent season with the Iowa Wild in the AHL. He initially showed promise after a successful stint in the USHL and a college hockey career at the University of Connecticut. However, after returning from a loan to the KHL's Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, he played just 10 games with the Iowa Wild, tallying 4 points, before returning to Russia.

Sources say #mnwild's Vladislav Firstov will be on unconditional waivers to today for purposes of contract termination.


The contract termination now allows Firstov the opportunity to pursue a career in the KHL or explore options with another NHL organization.
