The AHL's Milwaukee Admirals have signed top goalie prospect Yaroslav Askarov to a tryout contract.

Askarov, 19, was drafted 11th overall by the Nashville Predators in 2020. Askarov made a name for himself early on thanks to many successful appearances with Russia's junior team and has generally impressed during his KHL career. 

The 6-foot-4 goaltender has an 8-5-2 record with SKA St. Petersburg and posted a 5-2-2 record in the VHL, the second top men's league in Russia.

Askarov was Russia's starting goalie in the short-lived World Junior Championship, but will not take part in the return of the event after Russia was removed due to the invasion on Ukraine.

Currently unsigned in the KHL, Askarov is expected to sign an NHL entry-level contract in the near future with Nashville, with the potential to serve as Juuse Saros' backup next season.
