Parent, Predators agree to two-year deal
Ryan Parent, Nashville Predators agree to two-year deal.
The Nashville Predators and defenseman Ryan Parent have agreed on a two-year, $1.85 million contract. The 23-year-old defenseman will make $850,000 in 2010-11 and $1 million in 2011-12.

A restricted free agent, Parent had been acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers on June 19 in exchange for the rights to impending unrestricted free agent Dan Hamhuis.

Parent had 3 points -- including his first NHL goal -- in 48 games with the Flyers in last season. He missed all of January and February due to a back injury. He returned to score 1 goal in 17 playoff games.

In 102 NHL games -- all with the Flyers -- Parent has 1 goal and 7 points.

Parent had been a 2005 first-round pick of the Predators, and was traded to Philadelphia in 2007 as part of the package that landed Peter Forsberg in Nashville.
Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
