Radulov practices with KHL team

From Jessica Hopp of the Tennessean:

Predators forward Alexander Radulov participated in his new Russian team’s training camp Friday even though his contract was suspended by the International Ice Hockey Federation.

Continental Hockey League President Alexander Medvedev said the international federation can’t keep Radulov off the ice during domestic competition or camp.

The suspension applies to his new team Salavat Yulaev Ufa’s games in the inaugural Champions Hockey League, a tournament to determine Europe’s top club team that starts in October. It also would apply to the World Championships and the Olympics.

The KHL is adamant that Radulov’s contract was not in violation of their agreement with the NHL. So, expect Radulov to continue practicing until the issue gets resolved one way or another.
