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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
