Ilya Samsonov Bio

The Washington Capitals were more than content to take their time waiting for Samsonov after they selected the goalie from Magnitogorsk, Russia, in the first round (No. 22) of the 2015 NHL Draft.

Washington selected Samsonov, rated by NHL Central Scouting as the top European goalie available in the draft, after the 18-year-old had made his Kontinental Hockey League debut with Metallurg Magnitogorsk. He played three more seasons in the KHL before signing with the Capitals on May 4, 2018.
