The Nashville Predators are hoping that the IIHF will rule by the end of the week on Alexander Radulov.
Radulov signed a contract with Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL a month ago, despite already having a contract with the Predators for the upcoming season. Radulov is a talented 22-year-old who has a big future in the NHL, but it looks like Radulov really wants to return to Russia. Should he be forced to return to the NHL, he won't be happy and his point total may suffer. He is not worth taking a chance on in fantasy drafts, unless you can get him very late.
