Semyon Varlamov would love to have Alexander Radulov join the Colorado Avalanche for next season.
The Avs’ starting goalie, over in Russia for the world championship, said so to Russian newspaper Sport Express.
Here are some of his translated remarks:
Patrick Roy, of course, coached Radulov in junior, and there have been reports that Roy would like to coach him again.
Radulov had an excellent season for CSKA Moscow, leading the team with 65 points in 53 regular-season games, then adding 17 points in 20 playoff games.
The 29-year-old has 102 points in 154 career NHL games, including 47 goals.
