Vadim Alexandrovich Shipachyov[1] (Russian: Вадим Александрович Шипачёв; born 12 March 1987) is a Russian professional ice hockey forward for Dynamo Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He has previously played with Severstal Cherepovets and SKA Saint Petersburg of the KHL and the Vegas Golden Knights of the National Hockey League (NHL).[2]

Playing career[edit]

On 4 May 2017, he signed with the Vegas Golden Knights making him the second person in history to be signed by the Golden Knights.[3] On 15 October, he made his debut for the Golden Knights against the Boston Bruins and scored his first NHL goal on Bruins' goaltender Tuukka Rask. On 29 October, he was suspended by the Golden Knights for failing to report to their AHL affiliate.[4] The following day, it was announced that he had decided to return to Russia, and that his contract would be terminated as soon as he had cleared unconditional waivers.[5] On 9 November, the Golden Knights announced that their contract with Shipachyov was terminated,[6] and that he was able to return to play in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).[7]

On 11 November, Shipachyov signed with SKA Saint Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) for the remainder of the 2017–18 KHL season.[8] In 22 regular season games, Shipachyov tallied 25 points, helping SKA finish top of the league. In the post-season, he was unable to help SKA repeat as champions, losing in the conference finals against CSKA Moscow contributing 11 points in 14 games.

As a free agent after completing his 5th season with St. Petersburg, Shipachyov left to sign a two-year contract with Dynamo Moscow on May 17, 2018.[9]

International play[edit]

Shipachyov has played for the Russian national team in the World Championships and World Cup of Hockey. He was the top scorer of the 2016 IIHF World Championship in which Russia won the bronze medal. He won a gold medal as a member of the Olympic Athletes from Russia team at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
