Restricted free agent forward Brodie Dupont and the Nashville Predators came to an agreement Friday on a one-year, two-way contract, less than a week after the team acquired his rights from the New York Rangers.

The deal will pay Dupont $550,000 at the NHL level and $80,000 at the AHL level.

Dupont, 24, ranked third on the Connecticut Whale in points (14-31-45) and assists and second in power-play goals (9) in 2010-11. The Russell, Man., native made his NHL debut with the Rangers last season, appearing in a 3-2 victory over Atlanta on Jan. 22. In 297 American Hockey League games since 2007-08, Dupont has 50 goals, 148 points and 389 penalty minutes.

A third-round selection of the Rangers in the 2005 Entry Draft, the 6-2, 210-pound left wing played 214 career games with the Western Hockey League’s Calgary Hitmen from 2003-07, registering 81 goals and 149 points along with 324 penalty minutes.
