MOSCOW, November 4 (R-Sport) - KHL top scorer Alexander Radulov has been spared surgery on his damaged knee ligament, his team CSKA Moscow said Sunday.

The ex-Nashville Predators forward, who has scored 31 points in 23 games for CSKA this season, was hurt during a 6-2 win over Amur Khabarovsk on Friday.

Radulov underwent an in-depth diagnostic examination in Moscow, and it was concluded that he won't need to go under the knife.

“The player will limit his training loads for the next 10 days,” a website statement said.

The Amur game was CSKA's last before a two-week KHL break and the team’s players will be back in training on November 7.
