The Toronto Maple Leafs are among the teams attempting to sign skilled KHL winger Ilya Mikheyev, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Dreger added that the Vegas Golden Knights and the Chicago Blackhawks are also in the mix for Mikheyev, who is expected to make his decision this weekend.

The 24-year-old has spent the last four full seasons playing for Omsk Avangard and has recorded 62 goals and 120 points in 224 career contests.

This season, the Russian posted 23 goals and 45 points in 62 games, adding 11 points in 13 playoff tilts.

Mikheyev also represented Russia at the World Hockey Championship last spring, contributing three goals and one assist in eight games.

The Maple Leafs dipped into the KHL player pool to sign defenseman Igor Ozhiganov from CSKA Moscow last summer.
