The Russian forward confirmed that he will return to the NHL for the 2016-17 season, according to's Igor Eronko.

Radulov did not elaborate on any of the details of a contract. Earlier in the week Radulov reportedly skipped out on Russia's World Championship camp, making a trip to New York to meet with several NHL teams instead.

The trip left the Russian team angry, but they have since reportedly forgiven him, and Radulov will join the club for the tournament that kicks off next week.

Radulov last appeared in the NHL in 2012 where he had seven points in nine regular season games with the Nashville Predators and six points in eight playoff matches.
