It appears that one team is aggressively pursuing a former NHL star, looking to make his way back into the league.

According to George Richards of the Miami Herald, the Florida Panthers are one of the frontrunners to obtain the services of forward Alexander Radulov, who is attempting to make a comeback to the NHL after spending the last few seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League.

The Panthers are only one of the teams trying to get Radulov to join their respective teams, but it appears the Panthers have their hearts set on landing the 29-year old. They believe he would make a good fit on a team with many young up-and-coming stars. Matthew Coller of ESPN also made mention of the Panthers' interest in Radulov in a recent piece.

Radulov has been out of the NHL since the 2011-2012 season, but was a very effective forward when he starred for the Nashville Predators.

In his time in the NHL, he recorded 47 goals and 55 assists for 102 points in 154 games.
