Nashville Predators have signed forward Sergei Kostitsyn to a two-year, $6 million contract, avoiding arbitration in the process.

Kostitsyn, 25, had 17 goals and 26 assists in 2011-12; however, he struggled in the playoffs, with just a goal and an assist in 10 games.

The signing leaves Anton Stralman (NY Rangers) and Dale Weise (Vancouver) as the only two RFAs still headed for arbitration.
