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

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.
