  • Predators' Yakov Trenin: Inks contract after arbitration

    Trenin signed a two-year, $3.4 million contract with the Predators on Friday.

    Trenin was awarded this contract in arbitration, and it didn't take the Predators long to agree once the offer was finalized. After setting career highs in goals (17), points (24) and games played (80) last season, Trenin figures to be a staple in Nashville's lineup for the next two years.

  • Predators' Yakov Trenin: Gets two-year deal in arbitration

    Trenin was awarded a two-year, $3.4 million contract with Nashville in arbitration Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Trenin's $1.7 million AAV is a slight raise over the $1.35 million the Predators filed for through salary arbitration. The 25-year-old Russian had been a restricted free agent after scoring 17 goals in a third-line role for the Predators in 2021-22. Trenin will likely fill a similar role in 2022-23 unless the Predators decline the decision made by the arbitrator, in which case Trenin would become an unrestricted free agent.

  • Predators' Nino Niederreiter: Grabs two-year deal

    Niederreiter agreed to terms on a two-year, $8 million contract with Nashville on Thursday.

    Niederreiter is coming off back-to-back seasons in which he reached the 20-goal threshold for the Hurricanes and will now link up with his fourth NHL team in his 11-year career. Despite his strong season, the 29-year-old winger will actually take a slight pay cut with his new $4 million AAV. With the Preds, Niederreiter should have the inside track on a top-six role but will have to stave off youngsters like Eeli Tolvanen and Philip Tomasino.

  • Predators' John Leonard: Inks two-way deal

    Leonard (lower body) signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Monday, per CapFriendly.

    Leonard was acquired from the Sharks earlier this month as part of the Luke Kunin trade. He scored two points in 14 NHL games and 32 points in 45 AHL contests last season. The 23-year-old forward will likely fill a similar depth role with the Predators during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Predators' Thomas Novak: Signs contract Monday

    Novak signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Predators on Monday.

    The deal carries a cap hit of $750,000 at the NHL level. Novak broke into the NHL last season at 24, pitching in seven points in 27 games. He was a bigger contributor with AHL Milwaukee, as evidenced by his 32 points in 42 contests, so the organization will likely be looking for further development before giving Novak a regular role with the big club.

  • Predators' Joakim Kemell: Secures entry-level deal

    Kemell signed a three-year, entry-level deal with Nashville on Friday.

    Kemell was the 17th overall pick in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The 18-year-old winger pocketed 15 goals and 23 points across 39 appearances in the Finnish Elite League. He'll likely stay in Finland during the 2022-23 campaign to continue his development.

  • Predators' Zach Sanford: Signs with Nashville

    Sanford signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Predators on Friday.

    Sanford appeared in 80 games split between the Senators and the Jets last season, picking up nine goals and 21 points over that span. The 27-year-old winger may have to settle for a reduced role with the Predators, meaning he could be in and out of the lineup, so don't count on him being a viable fantasy option in 2022-23.

  • Predators' Cole Smith: Re-ups with Nashville

    Smith signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Thursday.

    Smith made eight appearances with the Predators last year, but he's still in search of his first NHL point. He had 21 goals and 20 assists in 59 games with AHL Milwaukee, displaying a solid scoring touch. Still, the winger's two-way deal likely means he'll spend most of the season in the minors.

  • Predators' Kevin Lankinen: Signs with Nashville

    Lankinen signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Predators on Thursday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Lankinen drew into 32 games with the Blackhawks last season, going 8-15-6 while posting a sub-par 3.50 GAA and .891 save percentage. The 27-year-old netminder should probably be considered the favorite to win Nashville's backup job behind Juuse Saros, and he should perform better behind a Predators defense that is far better than Chicago's.

  • Predators' Mark Jankowski: Lands in Music City

    Jankowski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Thursday.

    Jankowski will likely spend some time at AHL Milwaukee during the upcoming campaign, given he's on a two-way deal. He drew into 19 games with the Sabres last year, logging five points, and he added 27 points in 32 contests with AHL Rochester. This will be his fourth organization in as many years, and he's unlikely to see more than a bottom-six role if he makes the Predators' roster.

  • Predators' Kiefer Sherwood: Signs one-year deal

    Sherwood signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Predators on Thursday.

    Sherwood's deal is reportedly one-way, which bodes well for his chances of making the Predators' Opening Night roster. He had a stunning 36 goals and 39 assists in 57 games with AHL Colorado last year. He's seen 87 games in the NHL between the Ducks and the Avalanche over the last four years, amassing 18 points, so the forward is likely bound for a bottom-six role at best.

  • Predators' Kevin Gravel: Links up with Preds

    Gravel signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Thursday.

    Gravel had 14 points in 59 contests with AHL Stockton last year. He hasn't been in the NHL since 2019-20 with the Maple Leafs, and the two-way nature of this new contract suggests the veteran defenseman will spend much of his time with AHL Milwaukee.

  • Predators' Jordan Gross: Finds new home

    Gross signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Thursday.

    Gross is the reigning AHL Defenseman of the Year after posting 65 points in 61 contests with AHL Colorado. The 27-year-old blueliner has 10 games of NHL experience to his name, and he could get a chance to compete for a roster spot with the Predators this fall.

  • Predators' Roland McKeown: Shores up Nashville's depth

    McKeown signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Wednesday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    McKeown had 20 points in 61 contests with AHL Colorado last season. He hasn't played in the NHL since 2017-18, so this is almost surely a depth move for the Predators' farm team.

  • Predators' Devin Cooley: Remaining in Nashville organization

    Cooley signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Cooley posted a 3.06 GAA and an .898 save percentage in 24 contests with AHL Milwaukee last season. The 25-year-old could compete for the backup job behind Juuse Saros, but the nature of Cooley's two-way deal suggests he'll spend most of the year in the minors.

  • Predators' Jimmy Huntington: Lands two-way deal

    Huntington signed a one-year, two-way contract with Nashville on Monday, per CapFriendly.

    Huntington has yet to make his NHL debut. The 23-year-old scored 35 points in 61 games with AHL Syracuse and AHL Milwaukee last season. Expect him to fill a similar organizational depth role during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Predators' Filip Forsberg: Signs eight-year extension

    Forsberg signed an eight-year, $68 million extension with the Predators on Saturday.

    The deal reportedly carries an AAV of $8.5 million for the 27-year-old Forsberg as Nashville locks up its star winger before the start of free agency. Forsberg is coming off a career-best season in 2021-22, with 42 goals and 42 assists in 69 games. The Preds' franchise leader in goals will anchor their top six for years to come.

  • Predators' Kasper Kulonummi: Picked by Predators in Round 3

    Kulonummi was selected 84th overall by the Predators in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    An offensive-minded defender who can help with the man advantage and generate chances at even strength, Kulonummi posted 29 points in 40 games for Jokerit's U20 Jr. club in his native Finland this past season. Kulonummi's play in his own zone is a work in progress, but he competes fine for a guy who is undersized at about 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds. Kulonummi should have a chance to earn regular minutes in Finland's top Liiga league next season, something that will only serve to help his development down the road.

  • Predators' Adam Ingram: Upside pick in Round 3

    Ingram was selected 82nd overall by the Predators in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft on Friday.

    Ingram averaged more than a point-per-game for Youngstown of the USHL this past season (26 goals, 55 points in 54 games), although most of his production came in the first half of the year. Ingram is a big body at 6-foot-2 and does an excellent job of finding dead spots in coverage in the offensive zone to get off his wicked shot. A native of Manitoba, Ingram is off to St. Cloud State this fall. He could fail to make an immediate impact at the college level until he bulks up a bit, but Ingram is a high-upside selection for Nashville at this stage of the draft.

  • Predators' John Leonard: Traded in Draft Day deal

    Leonard (lower body) was traded to Nashville along with a third-round pick in a deal for San Jose's Luke Kunin on Friday.

    Leonard spent most of 2021-22 with the Sharks' AHL affiliate, where he scored 17 goals and added 15 assists. His 32 points were good for fifth on the squad. Leonard also tallied two points in 14 NHL games after a call up; he delivered 13 points in 44 NHL games as a rookie in 2020-21. The pivot has pedigree -- he was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award in 2019-20.
