Alexander Valerievich Radulov (Russian: Александр Валерьевич Радулов) (born July 5, 1986) is a Russian professional ice hockey player currently playing for Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

He started his North American career, in 2004–2005, being drafted at the 2004 CHL Import player draft by the Québec Remparts in the QMJHL from the CHL. That year, he finished third in scoring for his team, with 75 points in 65 games behind Josh Hennessy and Karl Gagné.

The following year, he became one of the most exciting and dominant players to play in the QMJHL. In the first half of the season, he and rookie Angelo Esposito formed one of the most explosive duos in the league. He became equally renowned for skating in front of the opposing team's bench and twirling his stick around and banging the handle on the ice, as if to put a sword into a sheath, after scoring a goal, something that angered opposing players but captivated and inspired his coach, Patrick Roy.
