With a roster that included former Caps Alexander Semin and Wojtek Wolski and Caps prospect Ilya Samsonov, Metallurg Magnitogorsk won the Gagarin Cup on Tuesday as champions of the KHL. Metallurg defeated CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Game 7 to claim the title.

In what was widely seen as his last shot in the NHL, Semin signed a one-year deal with the Montreal Canadiens for the 2015-16 season. After just 15 games with one goal and three assists, Montreal reassigned the mercurial Russian to the AHL. Rather than report, Semin instead opted to return to his native Russia and signed with Metallurg. In 23 playoff games, Semin tallied seven goals and eight assists.

One of the Capitals' top prospects, Samsonov served as backup goalie for Metallurg. The 19-year-old appeared in six playoff games recording a 2-2 record with a 2.29 goals against average (GAA) and a .916 save percentage.

In his first full season in the KHL, Samsonov finished with a 2.04 GAA and .925 save percentage.
