A pair of Pacific Division teams from north of the border are among the suitors hoping to land free-agent forward Andrei Kuzmenko.

The 26-year-old is interviewing with the Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers this week, as well as two teams based in the United States, reports TSN's Darren Dreger.

Kuzmenko hopes to decide on his NHL destination within the next 10 days, adds Dreger.

The Russian winger apparently met with the Canucks in early May.

Kuzmenko can only sign a one-year, entry-level contract at a maximum of $925,000 due to his age.

He ranked second in the KHL points race this season with 53 in 45 games. Kuzmenko played the last four seasons with SKA Saint Petersburg after suiting up for his first four with CSKA Moscow.
