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

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
