It appears Vadim Shipachyov will need to pay the piper to get out of Sin City.

The Vegas Golden Knights forward, who was suspended by the club Sunday after failing to report to the AHL, is reportedly aiming to return to the KHL, where he had played since 2008.

In order to do so, he’ll first need to repay the $2-million signing bonus that was part of his two-year, $9-million contract with the Golden Knights, reports Sportsnet’s Eric Engels.

Once the remainder is repaid, Vegas can place him on unconditional waivers in order to terminate his contract.

In three games with the Golden Knights, Shipachyov registered one goal, two penalty minutes, and a plus-three rating.
