That is what Russian journalist Igor Eronko ( claimed on Twitter today. It is the same journalist who already reported an interest from CSKA Moskva in the Swiss international last week. When approached by BSN Denver's Adrian Dater, however, Sven Andrighetto denied this "news".

Just a few hours later Eronko tweeted again, saying that he was told by Andrighetto's representatives that it is too premature and that the report is not accurate. The NHL would be his first option.

Andrighetto's contract with the Colorado Avalanche is set to expire this summer and he will become a Restricted Free Agent. This season so far, the forward has suited up in 67 games for the Avs, recording ten goals and 17 assists.
