Nashville Predators sign defenceman Scott Hannan to one-year deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have signed defenceman Scott Hannan to a US$1-million, one-year deal.

The 33-year-old had two goals and 10 assists with the Calgary Flames last season.

Hannan has 33 goals, 164 assists and 522 penalty minutes in 908 career regular season games with San Jose, Colorado, Washington and Calgary.

The six-foot-one, 225-pound blue-liner was drafted 23rd overall by the Sharks in 1997 and has played more games than any NHL defenceman in the last 10 seasons at 798.

Hannan also won a gold medal with Canada at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
