Yevgeny Anatolyevich Dadonov (Russian: Евгений Анатольевич Дадонов; born 12 March 1989) is a Russian professional ice hockey player. He is currently an unrestricted free agent who most recently played with SKA Saint Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He previously played for Traktor Chelyabinsk of the Russian Super League and its successor league, the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Dadonov was selected by the Florida Panthers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Dadonov played for Traktor Chelyabinsk in the RSL and KHL. He was drafted 71st overall by the Florida Panthers in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and joined the team in 2009, playing a season with their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Rochester Americans.

North America[edit]

He scored his first NHL goal on 15 December 2010 against Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes.[1] In January 2011 Dadonov was selected to participate in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game SuperSkills Competition as one of 12 rookies.[2]

In the 2011–12 season, the last year of his entry-level contract, after failing to gain a regular position into the Panthers line-up on 18 January 2012, Dadonov along with A.J. Jenks were traded by the Panthers to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Jonathan Matsumoto and Mattias Lindstrom.[3] Dadonov was assigned to the Hurricanes' affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers where he played the remainder of the season out.

Donbass[edit]

On 7 July 2012, Dadonov left the Hurricanes and North America to return to the KHL with Donbass. In December 2013 he signed a three-year extension with the club, and expressed interest in acquiring Ukrainian citizenship.[4] With Donbass, Dadonov won the 2012–13 IIHF Continental Cup, and became the second scoring leader of the tournament.[5] In the 2013–14 KHL season Dadonov helped Donbass reach the Conference Semi-Finals.

SKA Saint Petersburg[edit]

With HC Donbass suspending operations due to the outbreak of War in Donbass Dadonov signed a multi-year contract with KHL club SKA Saint Petersburg on 11 June 2014.[6]

In 2015 Dadonov played a vital role in helping SKA Saint Petersburg to win the Gagarin Cup for the first time. He set a record scored by a player in the Gagarin Cup playoffs (15) When team captain Ilya Kovalchuk was named as MVP he refused to accept it and passed the award to Dadonov.[7] In a later interview, Kovalchuk said that he felt Dadonov deserved the award more.[8] At the end of the season the KHL named Dadonov one of the two winners of the "Gentleman on Ice" award, an individual "fair play" award.[9]
