Dadonov had been previously rumored to be following in the footsteps of countryman Vadim Shipachyov and heading to Vegas, but instead will be plying his trade with the team that drafted him 71st overall in 2007.
The 28-year-old spent the last five seasons in the KHL, most recently racking up 30 goals and 66 points for SKA St. Petersburg - good enough for fifth in league scoring.
Dadonov last suited up in the NHL during the 2011-12 season, registering three points in 15 games for the Panthers.
