He had 47 goals and 102 points in 154 regular-season games with Nashville. Radulov left the NHL at the start of the 2012-13 season, choosing to play in Russia after being suspended by Nashville for violating curfew during the 2011-12 season. He was selected by Nashville with the 15th pick in the 2004 NHL Draft.

Known for his accurate shot and goal-scoring ability, Radulov spent the past four seasons with CSKA Moscow in the Kontinental Hockey League. He had 23 goals and 65 points in 53 games last season to help CSKA advance to the Gagarin Cup Final.

Radulov has 169 goals and 492 points in 391 KHL games, an average of 1.26 points per game.
