The Dallas Stars have signed forward Alexander Radulov to a five-year contract worth $31.25 million which was announced Monday afternoon.
Originally a first-round pick of the Nashville Predators in 2004, Radulov has left the NHL for his home in Russia on two separate occasions.
“Alexander is a dynamic playmaker with top-end speed and skill,” said Stars general manager Jim Nill. “To add a forward of this stature to our lineup makes our top six as deep and talented as any group in this League.”
He has 24 playoff games under his belt despite playing in the NHL for just parts of four seasons. Radulov picked up seven points in six playoff games for the Canadiens last season.
