  • Paul Gaustad: Announces retirement from NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/8/16) Gaustad announced his retirement from the NHL on Thursday.

    Gaustad evidently didn't receive much interest from NHL clubs as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and has decided to hang up his skates instead of pursuing a continuation of his professional hockey career overseas. The 34-year-old forward defied the odds from the start, beginning his career as a seventh-round selection in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, and ending it after 11 productive seasons split between the Sabres and Predators. Gaustad finishes his highly respectable career with a total of 89 goals and 142 assists over 727 NHL games.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Nets Game 7 winner

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/28/16) Gaustad's first-period goal stood up as the winner in Nashville's Game 7 victory over the Ducks.

    The Stanley Cup playoffs make heroes out of unlikely candidates, and that is exactly what happened to Gaustad in this one. The fourth-line center potted just two goals in the regular season, but his first point of the playoffs will live forever in Nashville lore as the deciding play of the franchise's first Game 7.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Will return to action Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/16) Gaustad (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game against the Stars, Brooks Bratten of the Predators reports.

    Gaustad has been sidelined since March 5 with an unspecified upper-body injury, but he will return to the ice Tuesday night. He will skate on the Predators' fourth line alongside Colton Sissons and opposite Miikka Salomaki.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Out for next four contests

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/16) Gaustad will not travel with the Predators on their four-game road trip after suffering an upper-body injury, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    Gaustad left the Mar. 5 matchup with Colorado after 5:42 of ice time and will stay in Nashville rehabbing. The center has not missed a game since early December, yet he has provide little offensive production over that span. In the 41 games since the 34-year-old was last out of the lineup, he has tallied a measly four points while adding 39 PIM.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Assists in win over Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/16) Gaustad recorded an assist in Thursday's win over the Jets, his second point in the last four games.

    Now with just five points in 38 games this season, Gaustad is on track to post the lowest offensive totals of his career. This should not come as a surprise to anyone, of course, as the 33-year-old spends most of his time centering the Preds' fourth line, taking faceoffs, killing penalties and keeping the opposition's best players in check. In fact, defensive-zone faceoffs are Gaustad's specialty, where he leads the league with an astounding 90.7% win rate.
