Alexander Radulov is coming back to the NHL.

The Russian winger has signed a one-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

Originally drafted 15th overall by the Nashville Predators in 2004, Radulov has 154 career NHL games on his resume, recording 47 goals and 55 assists during that time.

Following a four-year stint in the KHL beginning in 2008, Radulov returned to Nashville late in the 2011-12 season, but was suspended in the playoffs for breaking team curfew. The 29-year-old subsequently spent the past four seasons with CSKA Moscow, recording 78 goals and 238 points in his last 181 games.

Radulov will join the recently-acquired Shea Weber in Montreal, who served as team captain during his tenure with the Predators.
