Omark Considering Playing in Russia Next Season

Swedish Elite League player and Edmonton Oilers prospect Linus Omark has made a name for himself in America by innovating a move in a recent shootout. The most-viewed version of the Youtube clip of Omark’s amazing goal has now amassed over 600,000 views in just over a week. Now, the “Swedish Youtube Sensation” has now caught the eye of Russia’s KHL, from which an undisclosed team has made Omark a one-year contract offer, TSN reported Saturday.

The deal would pay Omark approximately $1 million for one season. Reports are that he is heavily considering the offer, but is also negotiating with the Oilers for an entry-level contract in which he would be paid the maximum for a rookie. The fate of each potential deal lies in Omark’s hands.

For those who haven’t caught onto this sensation yet, check out Omark’s phenomenal play that has made him the most recognizable Swedish name in America.
