NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators have placed forward Sergei Kostitsyn on unconditional waivers.
Kostitsyn, 26, had three goals and 12 assists in 46 games with Nashville this past season. The Predators acquired him from Montreal in the summer of 2010.
Kostitsyn had 23 goals and 27 assists for the Predators in 2010-11 and followed that up with 17 goals and 26 assists in 2011-12. He has 67 goals and 109 assists in 353 career NHL games.
Kostitsyn's agent, Don Meehan, told The Tennessean that playing in the Kontinental Hockey League next season "is probably the likeliest option at this point" for his client.
