Nashville Predators Executive Vice President/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has recalled forward Alexander Radulov (al-ehx-AN-duhr RAD-uh-lahf) from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.
Radulov, 20 (7/5/86), leads the Admirals in goals (6), assists (12) and points (18) this season. The Nizhni Tagil, Russia native is tied for 15th in the AHL in scoring and ranks 10th in the league in assists despite playing in just 10 contests.
This is Radulov's second recall to Nashville this season. The 6-1, 188-pound forward was recalled on October 20, appeared in his first NHL game on October 21 vs. Vancouver and scored his first career NHL goal one game later on October 26 vs. San Jose. Radulov has two goals in six games with the Predators this season.
The Predators have placed defenseman Mikko Lehtonen on injured reserve.
Nashville (13-4-2) faces the Dallas Stars (14-6-0) Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. CT at American Airlines Center. The game will be televised locally on FSN South and broadcast on The Zone (WGFX 104.5-FM).
