Sergei Kostitsyn has signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Nashville Predators, avoiding arbitration.

The 25-year-old winger recorded 17 goals and 43 points in 75 games for the Predators last season. In 10 post-season games, Kostitsyn notched a goal and an assist in 10 games.

The former seventh-round draft pick has spent the past two seasons in Nashville after he was traded from the Montreal Canadiens.

In 307 NHL games, Kostitsyn has 64 goals and 161 assists.
