Leafs pursuing another Russian star?

Igor Eronko shared a report the other day indicating that the Maple Leafs may be panning for gold in the KHL once again:

He wasn't drafted and hasn't played for a North American team before, but he has a decorated career for the Russian national junior team.

The Leafs have had recent success in bringing over KHLers Nikita Zaitsev, Nikita Soshnikov and Leo Komarov.

Tkachyov has 23 points in 43 games for Ak Bars this season.
