Alexander Radulov

35-Year-Old Right WingRW
Dallas Stars
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Radulov was chugging along prior to the recently completed campaign, but Father Time finally caught up with the 35-year-old, as injuries limited him to just 11 games last season. He was exceedingly productive in the limited time he did play, posting four goals and 12 points, including six with the man advantage. Radulov ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in April, although he is tentatively expected to be ready for training camp. Fantasy managers have a decision to make here. Radulov is slated to once again have a prominent role on one of the NHL's better offensive clubs, but his age and injury history are concerning. Keep both in mind when deciding if he's worth the plunge in the middle rounds. Read Past Outlooks

Collects assist in loss

October 17, 2021
Radulov registered an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.
ANALYSIS
Radulov set up Michael Raffl for the opening tally at 4:34 of the first period, but the Stars' only lead of the game lasted just 50 seconds. The helper was Radulov's first point in three contests, as the Stars' talented top six has had a bit of a slow start. The Russian winger was limited to 11 games last year, but he had 12 points and 25 shots on net. He's more of a 50-to-60-point option at age 35 as long as he retains a prominent power-play role.

Radulov saw his offense cut in half in 2019-20 following back-to-back 72-point campaigns. The Russian winger ended the season with just 15 goals and 34 points in 60 contests. Some of his struggles can be attributed to the fact that he lost time to various injuries and illnesses throughout the campaign. The 34-year-old still projects as a top-line winger, but with Tyler Seguin out to start 2020-21, Radulov will need to develop chemistry with new linemates. It wouldn't be surprising to see Radulov only play at a 40-to-45-point pace this season, although he should complement his scoring with solid PIM and hit totals, and his power-play time should remain lofty.
Radulov's second season in Dallas was nearly a carbon copy of his first. Despite playing 12 fewer games, he repeated his 72-point output, swapping two helpers for two goals, and his power-play production was also an exact match. The 33-year-old continues to show good chemistry with Tyler Seguin on the Stars' top unit, with his sniper's instincts meshing well with Seguin's all-around offensive game. Radulov has also somewhat surprisingly become an asset in his own end of the ice, blocking 83 shots and compiling a plus-22 rating, both career highs. Joe Pavelski and Corey Perry were added this offseason to bolster the Stars' top six, but Radulov will remain a key part of the team's attack.
Radulov's five-year, $31.25 million contract looks like a solid investment after the 32-year-old put together his best season yet in the NHL in 2017-18. Skating on the top line alongside the dynamic duo of Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, Radulov recorded career highs in goals, assists, shots and power-play production, and he showed more willingness to get involved defensively, blocking a career-best 64 shots. The Russian's newfound commitment to being a model teammate was even rewarded when he was named an alternate captain by the Stars, as he wiped away memories of his ugly departure from Nashville. Still possessing the soft hands and instinct for open ice that always made him such a dangerous sniper, Radulov should remain a key part of the Dallas offense.
Radulov was a low-risk gamble that paid off handsomely for Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin. While his reputation as an immature player and polarizing teammate was well documented, Radulov became a model citizen and a fan favorite in Montreal thanks to his gap-toothed smile, skills and work ethic. He immediately developed chemistry with whomever he skated, eventually establishing himself on the top line with Max Pacioretty. Radulov finished second on the team with 54 points and first with 36 assists. After proving himself on a one-year, make-good deal, he became a highly sought after free agent. Montreal tried to lure him back, but the Russian forward opted to sign with the Stars, whose offer carried an additional year and presented a better tax situation. Radulov joins a more offensively gifted Dallas team that made serious offseason moves with hopes of climbing back up the Western Conference ranks.
Radulov, an overseas star with NHL experience on his resume, comes back to the North America after spending several seasons in the Russian Kontinental Hockey League. He had 65 points in 53 games for CSKA Moscow last year and has averaged more than a point per game in the KHL (581 points in 483 games). Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin, recognizing his team’s need for scoring, beat out several other franchises in the bidding war to bring Radulov back to North America, signing him to a one-year deal for $5.75 million. Bergevin reached out for several opinions, including that of the recently acquired Shea Weber, who played with Radulov in Nashville. The consensus is that while the Russian made some mistakes when younger, it was more about his immaturity than any lingering character issue. Today, Radulov is a 29-year-old father who’s in a different place in his career. Bergevin has to be hoping this gamble pays off better than his recent string of additions – we all remember the ill-fated additions of Daniel Briere, P.A. Parenteau, Zack Kassian and Alexander Semin. Radulov is a far better player than that crew and will provide the Habs with a much-needed offensive boost in the top-six ranks.
Signed a four-year deal with CSKA Moscow of the KHL in July 2012.
Radulov is not expected to rejoin the Predators this season. Although technically still under contract with Nashville, he is expected to satisfy the final year of a three-year contract playing for Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL.
Radulov has been the center of one of the larger off-season stories during the summer. With years remaining on his contract with Nashville, Radulov signed a lucrative, multi-year contract with a Russian team in the KHL. The contract dispute that has followed is one for the NHL history books. There are rumors that Radulov could return to Nashville this season, but that remains to be seen. If he does, his fantasy value is very clouded since it's not clear what his attitude and role with the team might be. Radulov could also end up being trade bait, so the discriminating fantasy hockey manager may want to steer clear of Radulov until his situation settles down a bit.
Radulov is an impact offensive player with a remarkable nose for the net. In 64 games with Nashville this past season he had 18 goals and 37 points. Radulov's numbers could rise this season, similar to the way Thomas Vanek's numbers rose last year with Buffalo, and he could very easily end up with 40 goals and 70 points in 2007-08. He is one of the most dynamic offensive prospects in the league and he must be drafted in all leagues this season.
If there’s one name to remember entering the Preds’ camp this season it’s Alexander Radulov. The first round 2004 draft pick has the talent to make the jump to the NHL this season. The 6’-1”, 186 pound sniper ran away with all kinds of hardware last season while with the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL. Radulov rang-up 61 goals, 91 assists and a mind-boggling 152 points in 62 games last season. With the departure of a handful of players in the off-season, the Predators have opened the door for Radulov to make the jump this season.
2004's first round pick is the prototypical Russian 'natural goal scorer', with a nose for the puck and the back of the net. Despite a good showing in camp he's probably a couple of years away from the NHL, but expect him to explode once he gets sent back for his final year of junior hockey.
