The Nashville Predators have come to terms with forward Sergei Kostitsyn on a two-year deal worth US$6-million, the club announced Monday.

Kostitsyn had 17 goals and 26 assists in 75 games last year on a one-year, $2.5-million contract with the Preds.

The 25-year-old from Belarus led the team in goals with 23 in 2011-12, as well as tying the team-high in points with 50, in his first year in Nashville after being traded by Montreal.

Kostitsyn was drafted by the Canadiens in the seventh round in 2005.
