There may be a very interesting addition to the NHL's free agent pool at the end of the season.

Earlier this summer, Alexander Radulov wouldn't rule out a return to the NHL in 2016. He fuelled speculation once again on Thursday.

Radulov has rejected CSKA Moscow's latest contract offer, indicating he's planning to become a free agent at the end of the season, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports.

It was previously reported Radulov would sign a long-term deal with the KHL club.

The 29-year-old forward recorded 47 goals and 55 assists in 154 games over two stints with the Nashville Predators before returning to the KHL in 2012-13. He has 13 goals and 24 assists in 32 games with CSKA Moscow this season.
