The Nashville Predators has given up on Alexander Radulov.
The team is currently looking at trading his rights to another team for next season. And if there are no takers, he will return to the KHL, where he was playing before returning to the NHL last season.
“The best way to characterize it is it’s time to not pursue Rad anymore,” Predators GM David Poile said. “If he wants to play in the KHL, that’s fine. If he wants to play with another NHL team, I’d be willing to trade his rights.”
He is scheduled to become a restricted free agent on July 1st. He played in Russia for four years before coming back to the States.
He had three goals and four assists in nine regular season games. He also had six points in eight playoff games.
