//Montreal Canadiens sign Alexander Radulov · NHL · RumorsLeague. Red Hot Sports Rumors

Montreal Canadiens sure are busy: only two days after trading their star defenseman P.K. Subban, they welcomed five new players the very same week. Among them was a Russian goal scorer Alexander Radulov, a former teammate of Shea Weber in Nashville. However, Radulov has some history with the NHL.

Canadiens General Manager Marc Bergevin said the following: “Shea talked to me about when he was with him in Nashville, it was not a character issue but a maturity issue.”

Radulov was drafted 15th overall in 2004 by Nashville, but he came back to the Russian KHL after two seasons. During the 2015-16 season, he was in 53 games for CSKA Moscow, scoring 23 goals, the fifth highest in KHL.

Radulov signed a one-year $5.75 million contract with Montreal.
