Alexander Radulov En Route To North America, Set To Join Nashville Predators

If you didn't believe Alexander Radulov was ever going to come back to the Nashville Predators, well, you're mistaken. This should be proof enough for you that Radulov will be joining the team sooner than later.

That was Tweeted at 5:22 a.m. ET Tuesday morning, which was about 1:20 p.m. in Moscow, from which Radulov departed.

According to some savvy commenters at Predators blog On the Forecheck, it appears as though Radulov is on Delta Airlines No. 31, which departed at 12:10 p.m. Moscow time and is set to arrive at John F. Kennedy International in New York City at 3:38 p.m. ET.

While it seems impossible that he could play against the Edmonton Oilers Tuesday evening in Nashville, is it possible that he makes it to Bridgestone Arena in time to be greeted by Preds fans? There's one direct flight from JFK to Nashville International Airport after Radulov's scheduled arrival in New York, and it would get him to Music City at 6:59 p.m. CT, just minutes before puck drop.

It's possible Radulov could make an apparence at the arena tonight, but we won't know until it actually happens. As for game action? Well, if he's going to be in Nashville today, it makes sense that he'll be ready to play on Thursday night in Pittsburgh, a game that's on NHL Network. How convenient!
