The Nashville Predators placed forward Steve Moses on unconditional waivers Thursday.

It’s a move that signals the Predators are set to get out from under the one-year, $1-million contract they signed Moses to last April. Moses could return to the Kontinental Hockey League with SKA St. Petersburg.

Moses led the KHL in goals last season with 36 in 57 games, a league record.

The 26-year-old spent three seasons with Jokerit Helsinki before inking a deal with the Predators last spring. The Finnish hockey club moved from the Finnish Elite League to the KHL for the 2014-15 season.

Moses failed to crack the Predators roster out of training camp. He totaled two goals and eight points in 16 games with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League this season.
