Predators, Gaustad agree to deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators and Paul Gaustad agreed to a four-year, $13 million deal Saturday, keeping the 6-foot-5 American center from becoming a free agent.

The 30-year-old Gaustad joined the Predators in February in a deal that sent a first-round pick this year to Buffalo. The Sabres also received a fourth-round pick in 2013.

Gaustad had seven goals and 10 assists in 56 games last season for Buffalo, and added four assists in 14 games for Nashville. He had a goal and an assist in 10 playoff games.

In seven NHL seasons, he has 71 goals, 114 assists and 591 penalty minutes in 493 games.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
