Preds Acquire Forward Andrei Kostitsyn From Montreal
-Send 2013 second rounder and conditional pick to the Canadiens in the second trade between the clubs in a 10-day span -


Nashville, Tenn. (February 27, 2012) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has acquired forward Andrei Kostitsyn from Montreal in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft, in addition to the conditional 2013 fifth-round pick Nashville acquired from Montreal along with Hal Gill in a trade 10 days ago. Kostitsyn is expected to meet the team for its game in Carolina tomorrow.

Kostitsyn, 27 (2/3/85), has 24 points (12g-12a) in 53 games for the Canadiens in 2011-12. The brother of current Predators forward Sergei Kostitsyn has suited up for 379 NHL games since the start of the 2005-06 campaign – all with the Habs – amassing 99 goals and 210 points. He is a three-time 20-goal scorer, notching career highs in both goals (26) and points (53) during the 2007-08 campaign. The 6-0, 205-pound right wing has also helped Montreal advance to the postseason the past four years, amassing 19 points (11g-9a) in 41 career playoff games.

The Novopolotsk, Belarus, native was drafted 10th overall (first round) by Montreal in the 2003 Entry Draft held at Bridgestone Arena.

The Predators look to finish off their final extended homestand of the season on a high note when the L.A. Kings make a stop in Smashville tonight (7 p.m., FS-TN, 102.5 The Game, Dollar Dog Night). The Predators then hit the road for the rest of the week, making stops in Carolina on Tuesday (6 p.m., FS-TN, 102.5 The Game) and Florida on Saturday (6:30 p.m., FS-TN, 102.5 The Game), while the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament takes over Bridgestone Arena.
