Top Ben Harpur News

  • Predators' Ben Harpur: Staying in Nashville

    Harpur signed a one-year, $800,000 deal with Nashville on Monday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    Harpur tallied seven assists with a plus-2 rating while averaging 16:26 of ice time through 34 games with Nashville last season. He should be expected to fill a similar role as a bottom-pair or depth defenseman during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Predators' Ben Harpur: Records helper

    Harpur notched an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Hurricanes in Game 6.

    Harpur played in five of the Predators' six playoff contests, and his assist Thursday was his only point. The 26-year-old added 10 hits, seven blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in a limited role on the third pairing. Harpur had a career-high seven points (all assists) in 34 regular-season contests in his first year with the Predators.

  • Predators' Ben Harpur: Sits out Saturday

    Harpur did not play in Saturday's 1-0 overtime win against the Stars, his first time serving as a healthy scratch since early March.

    Everybody needs a night off once in a while. Harpur has been a solid source of minutes on the back end for the Predators this season, with an average TOI of 16:33. With just seven assists on the season, he doesn't factor into the scoring much, but he's not a defensive liability most nights, either, with a plus-4 rating in 32 games. Overall, Harpur's fantasy value remains confined to very deep leagues at this time.

  • Predators' Ben Harpur: Helpers in consecutive games

    Harpur notched a shorthanded assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Harpur earned the secondary helper on Erik Haula's third-period tally. In his last seven games, Harpur has generated five assists. A plethora of injuries to the Predators' blue line has opened up a spot in the lineup for the 26-year-old defenseman, and he's done fairly well. He has seven assists, 30 hits, 27 shots on net, 25 blocked shots and 15 PIM in 26 outings.

  • Predators' Ben Harpur: Defensively sound Tuesday

    Harpur recorded an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Lightning.

    Harpur was steady on defense, and he contributed a secondary assist on Viktor Arvidsson's first-period tally. While offense isn't a significant part of Harpur's game, he's picked up four assists in his last six games. The 26-year-old blueliner is at a career-high six points (all helpers), 29 hits, 25 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in 25 outings overall.

    Harpur's assists came on third-period tallies by Mikael Granlund and Yakov Trenin. The 26-year-old Harpur has five helpers in his last 10 outings. That's all of his offense through 22 games this season, and he's added 24 hits, 21 blocked shots, 22 shots on net and 15 PIM. He should continue to see an increased role while five Predators blueliners are sidelined by injuries.

  • Predators' Ben Harpur: First point in two years

    Harpur recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Stars.

The assist was Harpur's first NHL point since the 2018-19 campaign, when he had a goal and four helpers in 51 games with the Senators. The 26-year-old blueliner has added 16 shots, 11 PIM and a minus-7 rating in 13 contests for the Predators this year. He'll likely bounce between the active roster and the taxi squad until some of Nashville's injured blueliners are able to return.
